Saturday night – 03/09/2013

I picked up a turkey breast before the last snowstorm thinking I would cook it up on Sunday. Instead we drove in the snow to Ikea. So I had this turkey breast sitting around and when Saturday night came into view I knew what was for dinner. Basically Thanksgiving dinner in March.

Roasted turkey breast
Herb dressing
Mashed potatoes
Butternut Squash with Spinach and Cranberries
Cranberry sauce
Homemade bread

There were 7 of us for dinner this week (4 adults; 3 child).

The turkey breast was one rolled and then bound in a net. I roasted it in an oven bag which did a great job of capturing the juices. There was very little fat released so I made a roux of butter and flour and added the turkey juices and veggie broth to make a gravy. It was a bit thicker than I wanted to I loosened it with some milk before serving.
