Oops… My Mistake

I was approving comments this morning and accidentally rejected some good ones. If you left a comment and don’t see it, I’m sorry. You didn’t do anything wrong. It was me. I rejected a spam comment and accidentally rejected some good ones, too.

This seems to be my week for mistakes. Yesterday, I was cooking a 19 lb turkey in a roasting bag. I cooked it according to the directions, but did not leave it in the oven long enough. I guess it must have been frozen still in the middle. When I took it out and cut open the bag, it looked great. I was very proud of myself.

I started scooping out the dressing and as I came down to the last of it, I started seeing red. I cut open the turkey, and sure enough, the meat against the bone was still pink. I put the dressing back in, took the bag out of the pan (it was no use to me anymore) and scooped turkey drippings over the turkey. I was so hoping not to dry out the turkey while trying to get it fully cooked.

Did I mention that I took out the top rack in the oven and raised the bottom one up? Removing the top rack was correct, but lifting up the bottom one was a mistake. The turkey ended up dry on the top and moist on the bottom. Could have been worse. I guess. The dressing came out really good. The drippings made into a really greasy gravy. I’m not sure what I did wrong with that. Usually, I just make gravy from a packet. I decided to make it from scratch this time. Mistake.

Oh well, life goes on. Hopefully, I can get through the rest of this week without too many more mistakes.
