Belated Happy TG! Ours was good, although, for the first time, being in the house with a cooking turkey started a mild allergic reaction in husband. He just took a walk while we opened a window and put on the exhaust fans in the bathrooms, and a fan in the kitchen window. Made it through dinner without getting worse, but I don't think I'll be cooking a turkey again in our house.
At least I've done it once on my own, know I can and feel pretty good about it. The turkey was still a bit frozen in the am - ran it under cool water until we could get enough open to get gibblets out, then a little longer, then back in the fridge until cooking time. Also cut apart the plastic holding the legs together before reading the instructions on how to take off and put back on. Just held legs together with some foil - worked fine. Husband enjoyed his flank steak. My cranberry sauce came out well - still using the leftovers in my turkey sandwich for lunch today! Used veg broth in mashed potatoes as I had two non-dairy folks - should have used more, but it was OK with gravy or butter. Mom did a great job on yams (new recipe) and gravy.
