pumpkin-rosemary turkey

hello fall!  hello crock pot you ol’friend!  fall is upon us and i have decided saturdays are going to be my crock pot day. to kick off the crock pot season i roasted a turkey breast on saturday.  aided by pumpkin beer and some rosemary i made a very yummy turkey breast.

the bird

along with it was of course mashed potatoes, carrots that were in the crock pot, and cornbread stuffing.


to help me eat this feast were the parental units.  dad brought wine and mom brought dessert.

hosting the parents

mom brought the last summer batch of homemade ice cream for dessert.  topping choices including Hershey’s chocolate syrup and strawberries and of course we had to eat them out of sundae dishes.
