Yesterday I posted my recipe for an Apple Crostata. I completely neglected to mention that the apples should be peeled as well as cored and sliced. I know, that’s a big “duh” but for people with CFS brains like mine, every little detail needs to be spelled out or we forget or flub things up. I’ve already edited my recipe to reflect my omission, so feel free to copy or share it now.
The Apple Crostata I made yesterday came out sooo good, and so did my turkey breast… AFTER I turned it breast side up. You see, my addled brain did not register the fact that my bird was turned downside up until it had been roasting for 3 hours! So chalk up another duh moment for me.
Not to worry though, everything turned out well in the end. Although Rick’s favorite way of eating freshly roasted turkey is in a sandwich with plenty of mayo — without any side dishes, mind you — I immensely enjoyed my serving of roast turkey with a baked potato and the green bean & mushroom side dish.
That’s one of the things you learn in marriage as you go along. Don’t stress the small stuff like needing to serve a somewhat different dinner to your spouse than you like. I’ve finally learned to make the side dishes and enjoy them myself whether Rick wants any or not! This just means there are leftovers for me to have the next day or so without having to do any more work — and THAT I definitely like!
Here is the result of my baking efforts today, doesn’t it look good?
This looks like it took way more effort than I actually used to make such a yummy looking dessert. After checking in the freezer and finding no vanilla ice cream (however did that happen?), I’m going to serve this up later on with a generous dollop of whipped cream. Canned whipped cream to save time and energy, but whipped cream nonetheless.
