Simple Turkey

Notes: Turkey is on sale this time of year for around 89 cents a pound in my area. However I urge you to look for a grocery store that will give you a free turkey in exchange for purchasing a certain amount of groceries. This will help your bill greatly.

1 14-15 pound turkey
1 stick margarine, softened
Bay leaves
Adobo, to taste
1 carrot, chunked
1 stalk celery, chunked
1 onion, quartered
1 green apple, quartered
½ C. water

Heat oven to 500 degrees. Wash the turkey and pat dry (save the bags of parts for your gravy). In the turkey cavity place all your vegetables. Separate the skin carefully from the turkey and place bay leaves and slices of half of the margarine under the skin. Rub the outside of the turkey with the rest of the margarine. Season to taste with adobo. Place turkey breast side up in a roasting pan. Put water in pan around the bird not over, you don’t want to wash away the margarine or seasoning. Cover turkey tightly with foil, removing the foil about 1 hour before turkey is done to brown the skin. Cook turkey at 500 degrees for 30 minutes, turn oven down to 325 and cook for 3-4 hours or until done, a meat thermometer inserted into the thigh without touching the bone should read 180 degrees when bird is fully cooked. Let turkey rest for 30 minutes before serving.

2.3 cup 4% cottage cheese

2 tsp butter (I actually used 2 TBS when I made it ..OOPS!)
1/2 tsp dill weed
1/2 tsp salt

Cook potatoes in water, cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender, drain.
