Heeeeeerrrrreeeee turkey turkey turkey!!

This week I thought I would start thinking about my learning project finale coming up for my ECMP 355 class. Over the semester I have been able to learn something of my choice and get marks for it- NOT too often does that happen in University!!

Anyway…

Here are just some of the skills I have learned over the semester so far through choosing to become better at cooking:

  • How to use a variety of kitchen tools (example: actifry)
  • How to make delicious soups (I was afraid of making soups from scratch before!)
  • How to find good recipes online and a variety of sources for learning cooking techniques.
  • How to make a digital cookbook to save my recipes!
  • How to make “how to” videos– haha
  • How to budget time in order to make time for cooking (cooking is a great way to relief stress for me.)

 

So you may be wondering why I have a turkey below….

I have decided I want to host guests and make a turkey dinner for my learning project finale!!

Here is what I think I need to do so far:

  • Find a turkey recipe (and also learn how to carve a turkey!)
  • Decide what side dishes I want to make
  • Shall we have dessert?
  • Make a grocery list
  • Decide who I want to invite (probably family)
  • How will I entertain my guests?

I am not sure what I am missing because I have never hosted people for a big dinner before- any tips for those of you who have would be great!

For this week I am going to start with trying to find a turkey recipe and beginning to plan out how I will set up my turkey dinner. Below are some resources I have been using so far:

Here’s to hoping my turkey looks like this when I am done with it!

Let me know if you have any ideas for my turkey dinner! Stay tuned for more later.

  1. That sounds awesome Michelle. I hosted my boyfriends family Christmas two years ago and it was my first time cooking a turkey and the whole meal deal. It was actually easier than I expected! You will do great!
