Turkey and morning smells
Here it is - almost Memorial Day and I've got a huge 20 lb turkey in my oven. Usually the only turkey we eat during the summer, would be in the form of sliced turkey from the deli. But this big bird, was taking up space in the freezer and I didn't want to waste it. So this morning, the cat woke me at 5am - and I took that opportunity, to get the defrosted turkey into the oven to cook during the cool of the morning. Nothing fancy - non of the trimmings, just mashed potatoes, gravy and a vegetable. Then we'll have the meat for sandwiches.
I know why the cat is waking me up - the sun rises and she is ready to start her day. Daisey Mae, wasn't ready to go outside, at 5am this morning. Right now she is passed out on the love seat.
I don't like food smells, this early in the morning. There are a few food smells that are okay for the morning and they are:
onions and green peppers in a omelet
I love it when it's winter and I come back inside my house, early in the morning and it smells like a donut shop - with the coffee. I never have donuts - but once or twice a year - that's a treat. My mind, just goes straight to donuts when I smell coffee. Boy I wish donuts were a health food.
So this morning, my house smells like coffee and turkey - kinda disgusting actually. Totally messes with my mind.
