Yes!! I did just say EASY!! Most do not think of easy when they think Thanksgiving. I used to get so stressed out at the thought of cooking this meal for my family or friends but over the years, I started buying more than one turkey when they went on sale. How can you not? You can get them as cheap as the pot roasts you like to cook all winter long. I love making a turkey dinner for no good reason in the middle of winter and then loving all the leftovers for the next week. Once I started doing this I realized that roasting a turkey did not have to be as complicated as all those cooking shows like to make you think you need to do. Don't get wrong, I am known for my Perfectly Brined Turkey but I am also known for tossing a bird in the oven with little to no effort. They both are good.
