There are times in life when we find ourselves on our own for Thanksgiving. Whether we choose this for our own personal sanity, because of travel logistics, because of illness, or loss, we still can still feel and participate in the spirit of the day.
As long as there is breath, there is always a path towards gratitude.
For me personally, this starts by holding my dear ones in my heart, those here, and those no longer. Brian and I over the years have lost both sets of parents and others too. We all experience loss, and our foundations get jostled. Our family dynamics change.
But the peaceful, quiet, loving place in our hearts remains. My hope is that we all can tap into this state of being within ourselves, no matter what our external environment brings this Thanksgiving. Cheers friends. Love and hugs.
How to make Oven Roasted Turkey Breast
Place a bed of chopped vegetables, tossed with olive oil and pepper, in a large roasting pan as the foundation for the Turkey breast. The drippings will help season the veggies!
Make the flavorful spice rub: Salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried herbs, fresh herbs, lemon zest and paprika.
Add olive oil or melted butter to create a thick paste.
Brush this flavorful paste on all sides of the turkey breast.
Nestle the turkey into the veggies.
Bake at 375F for 20 minutes per pound of turkey or until the breast registers 160F at the thickest part.
When it comes out it will be beautifully golden and the veggies will be tender.
Let the Turkey Breast 5-10 minutes before slicing.
Save the bones and make a bone broth the next day. A beautiful base for your next soup!
Hope you have a lovely week,
