Turkey Day!! First Post  
The turkey is in!  Plus: First burn of the day, taking out the top rack in the oven, which I always forget about until I try to put a 20+ lbs turkey in.  Joining us this year are special guests: serafaina and mizunol, up from Savannah, GA, to be joined later by thechildoftime and minerva710 with nightwalker reprising her role of Patient Roommate and Provider of Breakfast (scrambled eggs and cinnamon rolls!).

I have to go to Walmart to get buttermilk, but first I'm waiting for the turkey's first 1/2 hour at 500 degrees to be done.  This year, I'm going back to Alton Brown's Good Eats Roast Turkey, brining and all.  I did not get all the cleaning done that I wanted to yesterday, which is on par for the course, so while I cook I'm also going to do some tidying.  This year's adventures: New Sweet Potato recipe and a gluten-free Green Bean Casserole in which I will have to make the crispy onions myself.  Wish me luck!
