Thanksgiving Ideas

November 8, 2010

I can’t believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner! I wanted to do a quick post linking you to some Thanksgiving recipes. If you have any family recipes you want to share with my readers (all 5 of you) feel free to pass them on and I will post them!! Start planning your menu early so you don’t have to wait in long grocery lines the week of Turkey Day!

We have a Kasik family tradition of running in a 5K that morning so that you can justify all of these yummy foods. I’m still really bad at running but a run/walk counts too!


The Main Event:



Easy Turkey Brine

  • 1 quart cold water
  • 1/4 c plus 2 T Morton’s kosher salt (if using table salt, just use 1/4 c; if using “Diamond Crystal” kosher salt, use 1/2 c)
  • 1/2 c sugar

For every pound of meat you use, you should use 1 quart of the brine. Before adding the poultry, stir together the water, salt, and sugar until it dissolves. Brine the meat for 8 hours in the refrigerator, then drain water and let turkey drain for a little while and pat dry.
