Early Thanksgiving Dinner

Pretty eggcited, dusted the cobwebs off the egg this last Sunday night, hasn't been in use since August :whistle:
School and clinicals are crazy, no time to cook or even play around here :(
Veronica, pictured below, came up with a great idea to have a early thanksgiving dinner as a group. We have all been pretty close since this whole thing started a few years ago. Having a house full of 8 women can be pretty challenging :woohoo: :lol:
Brined a couple bone-in breasts and cooked at 325-350 till 160. Our nursing instructor also is a beekeeper and sells her own honey so I decided to incorporate that into a glaze with apple juice, butter, jack daniels, and a little ground mustard.


The plating wasn't the best, but man did it taste good



Here is one for ya Steve, Veronica requesting the Scorched Woman :evil:


Happy Thanksgiving

    Very nice looking breast, great color. How long did they take???

  • FockerFocker Posts: 8,053
    Thanks Bordello,
    The bigger one on the left took about 2 and 1/2 hours. The smaller one was a little shy of 2 hours.

    Not long at all, I appreciate the info. May end up doing a breast or two soon.

  • Hi Focker!
    Glad to see you are coming up for air (G A S P) ;)
    So, is this really the last semester before you start working on the BSN?? Or are you going straight into the fast-track MSN program? B) I hope you keep the momentum going 'cause once you stop it's way to easy not to start again.
    Just 1 more piece of old, wornout advise::
    Don't stop EGGIN, man!! It is therapy.
    Spring Chicken uses the Egghead Forum for his therapy, too.
    Nice cook :woohoo:
    Glad you haven't lost your touch :)

    Glad to see you still around here :)
    Last time I talked to ya, the Egg Nursery/Therapy Center was in production B)

    I will gladly take advice from a RN with your experience. Never understood why some like to eat their young? I've encountered a few with that mentality so far in my short journey. Good examples of what not to become. If I hear another person say "Nursing is great, you will have no problem finding a job with the shortage." I'm going to vomit. :angry: :side:

    BSN is definitely in the plans. Applying for an MICU position. The organization will pay for your BSN after 1 year of employment. I figured it would take about that to become comfortable on the floor. MSN is also in the plans. Gotta keep chasin' those letters ya know ;)
