    HAPPY THANKSGIVING……….Here is a recipe I thought you would like for the holidays



    1 whole turkey

    1 large lemon, cut into halves

    salt and pepper to taste

    butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer

     Heat oven to 350 degrees

    Rub butter or oil over the skin of the turkey until it is completely coated.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper and any other seasonings you prefer.Take a knife and gently separate the skin from the breast meat;  Slide  lemon  halves  under  the  skin  with  the  peel  side  up, one on each side.  This way the juice from the lemon will release into the breast. Cover and bake for 30-45 minutes.   Remove cover and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting every 15-20 minutes. If you’ve followed these steps correctly, your turkey should  look like the one in the picture.

    Bon Appetite!

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    This is so funny. Unfortunately, I doubt my extended family would find as humorous as we do. They are such prudes sometimes.
