Note: to keep the turkey moist, add water in the pan while it is baking, this keeps it moist and juicy. Do not let the water dry out, keep adding water at all times about half an inch in the baking pan. Use disposal baking pans to cook your turkey in...you will not have any pans to wash!

About

This is how i usually prepare my stuffed turkey, Middle Eastern style!
Thanksgiving day is not a religious holiday as much as it is an occasion to gather family and friends with good food. It is my favorite holiday to cook for with the Turkey and all the trimming, again, Middle Eastern style. Of course in my own opinion, anyone of us should give thanks on a daily basis for all the blessings that we have and enjoy.
Happy Holiday!
