My Black Friday Shopping Adventure!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and friends!

Sorry that I have not posted in the past couple of days, but I have been enjoying the time off with my wonderful hubby and son! 🙂

I did, however, manage to sneak in my annual Black Friday shopping adventure! This year, I actually pulled an all-nighter with some great friends from church, and we had a BLAST! 

Our all-night adventure started at 9:30 pm Thanksgiving night at an outlet mall close to home. Most stores did not open until 11pm or Midnight, but we wanted to get there early so that we could get a good parking place. (you need to be close to all the stores so that you make several trips to unload your goodies, right?)

I was the crazy one in the group and stood in line at the Coach outlet store for almost 2 hours! This is the one time of the year that I get to treat myself to a new bag and it is definitely worth it! They had 50% off the ticket price, then they were handing out coupons for another 20% off of that! Need I say more? 😉 Great deals–it was so much fun!

After we left the outlet mall at 3am, we headed to Kohl’s, Target, and the mall. I ended up not getting home until 8:30am that morning! Almost 12 hours of straight shopping is fun, but, it is tiring!

I was super tired when I got home and felt like I had been run over by a truck! My hubby thinks that I am crazy, but I told him that it is only once a year that I do something this crazy! He just laughs at me!

How about you? Did you go out early for some great bargains? If so, what was your best deal that you got?

Have a wonderful rest of your holiday weekend! 🙂

Alot more posts to come next week! Keep checking back!

Time-saving Tuesday Tips: Turkey 101

Well, I did it! I cooked my first turkey ever this past weekend for a Church function! I know, I know, I have been married for almost 10 years and have never cooked a turkey, right? Well, to be honest with you, we have always been away for the holidays, so I have never needed to before now! 🙂

I must admit that I was quite nervous about the whole cooking a 20 pound turkey thing! But, in the end, it was so easy, and took hardly any time at all thanks to my handy-dandy cooking bag!

That is what I wanted to share with you for today’s time-saving tip! I know that you all are just as crazy busy as I am, and probably do not have time in your crazy schedule to cook a turkey, right? Well, all you will need to cut time in the kitchen this Holiday season is a Reynold’s cooking bag, your bird, a stick of butter,  several whole bulbs of garlic, and a tablespoon of flour.     

After you have cleaned out the giblets of the turkey, take your bird and rub it down with the stick of butter. Next, take your garlic (make sure to have all the skins off) stuff most of it inside the cavity of the bird where the giblets were–I also took several cloves of garlic and placed them under the skin of the turkey. Thirdly, take your cooking bag and place the flour inside of it and shake it around. Season the turkey with salt and pepper, then place it inside the cooking bag and put it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 4 to 4 1/2 hours. (keep in mind–cooking time will of course differ depending on the size of your bird)

The smell of roasted garlic will infuse your house and you will have a turkey that is so juicy, moist and fall-apart tender I promise!

I was partly scared to cook a turkey because I thought that it would take forever–however, by using this time-saving technique, I was able to cook a turkey that was so delicious! In fact, I can’t wait to cook my next turkey! 😉 Did you know that cooking a turkey in a bag actually cuts down your cooking time by an hour or more?

If you are pressed for time this holiday season, why not try a cooking bag? I promise that you will not be disappointed! You will have some of the most delicious turkey ever!

****Happy Thanksgiving to all of my wonderful readers!****
