Busy, Busy Busy!!!!!! Stress, weary, stress! But I am taking a hiatus from stuff for a day or so, to catch my breath! But even though it was extremely taxing this year, for reasons I wont go into... suffice it to say, the enemy is very busy trying to stop the move of God in the world. Friday we set up the Family Life Center of our church with bags of Thanksgiving groceries that our gracious brothers and sisters have provided this month.., Then Saturday morning the Benevolent committee met at the grocer and purchased a $ 1000.00 worth of turkeys, pies and rolls. A Sunday school class provided the 61 5 pound bags of potatoes, and from 10 til noon, Saturday, we provided Thanksgiving supplies for over 60 families who either came in to receive the items, or had them personally delivered to their residences. It is so wonderful to see and feel the love and mercy that transpires when you know you are helping the needy who appreciate it so much... and you so desperately wish that they see Christ in the hugs and smiles you share. Today I have been resting in the Lord, preparing for another loaded week of meetings and choir practices.... but I did enjoy perusing the ideas for Thanksgiving preparations and found this great recipe for roasting a juicy and succulent turkey breast in Food.com..
Moist and Tender Turkey Breast
- 1 (5 -20 lb) fresh or frozen turkey breast (thawed) or 1 (5 -20 lb) turkey
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 12 ounces chicken broth or 12 ounces beer or 12 ounces white wine
- 1 -2 tablespoon mayonnaise
- Place turkey or turkey breast in a roasting pan.
- (I use a foil-lined 13x9-inch pan) Combine melted butter and chicken broth.
- Pour over turkey.
- Rub mayonnaise all over turkey's exterior.
- Salt lightly if desired.
- Roast at 300°-325°F until internal temperature reaches 170°F on an instant read thermometer. (I raise the temperature to 350° for the last approximate 30-45 minutes to crisp skin).
- Remove from oven and let sit for about 30 minutes before slicing.
- Note: because the butter and broth are for making gravy, if you need to make a lot of gravy, double the amount of both.
