Christmas Dinner

I love spending Christmas Day just the four of us...even though we always keep the day fairly low key I always cook a special Christmas dinner. In a previous entry I mentioned a fellow Joffrey Parent, Tracey. She practices sustainable farming at Grace Note Farm in Wisconsin and brought me some pretty amazing eggs, but I saved her other gift for our Christmas dinner.
Tracey also raises heritage turkeys on her property. These majestic birds differ greatly from the mammoth Butterball Turkeys that grace so many holiday tables...they are expensive to raise, take longer to mature. The have little breast meat and are prized for their superior flavor. I protected the finicky white meat with a shingle of bacon and I must admit the result was absolutely fabulous! I am not sure we'll be able to enjoy a grocery store turkey again...
