Butterball Turkey topped with onions and sliced of potatoes

For this year’s Thanksgiving I bought a butter ball turkey. This is a 5-6 pound of turkey. The size of the turkey is kind of big. It’s simple to bake, but the cooking time takes longer. Putting some potatoes and onions on top of the turkey makes the turkey look nicer. I put some aluminum foil on the wings and drumsticks to prevent it from getting burned.
When cutting the turkey, the knife has to be slanted at an angle to have a perfect piece of turkey. I prefer eating dark meat because it tastes good. I prefer white meats to be used in making sandwiches. You can choose what meat you want to eat as your desire.
Kids and adults would love this turkey. The best time to bake the turkey is early in the morning. You can have the turkey for lunch or dinner. The taste of the meat is good. The best combination that goes well with this turkey is rice. With the turkey and sauce, you can mix in the rice. You can also make a turkey sandwich with some gravy sauce and a bowl of salad on the side. I like this turkey a lot.
If you know you will not finish it in 2-3 days, you can freeze it in the freezer and take it out to defrost when you eat it. Try making the turkey, and you will know how good this turkey will taste.

instant pot – Vegetable soup with turkey bones

This is a vegetable soup with leftover turkey bone. I decided to use an instant pot to make this soup because it is fast and does not take long. If you make it from a stove, it can take longer. It is very simple to make it from an instant pot.
After a long day at work, and you want to make this kind of soup, all you need to do is take half white radish, rinse and peel the skin. Place the knife at an angle and cut it to pieces. Take parsley. Wash and chop into small pieces. Take a cucumber, open the package, place the knife at an angle and cut into pieces. Take celery, cut the leaves off. Take kife and place it on the top of the celery at an angle and peel some strips off. If you use your hand and break it in half, you will still be able to take off the strips. It can prevent having crunchy celery. Take a cabbage, take as much as you need, remove the outer part. If not very dirty, you do not need to wash it clean. Rinse the cabbage and cut it into pieces. Take leftover turkey in the freezer and defrost it in the microwave. Different microwave defrosts time can be different. Take some barley and chickpeas, rinse and place it aside.
Fill the instant pot with water, then put everything in the instant pot. Press the manual button and cook for 25 minutes. Once 25 minutes finish, it will release the pressure of the value. Once done, and the gray thing drops to the bottom. Press the saute button and wait until the soup starts to boil. That means it is ready to eat.
This soup is very delicious, and I like it a lot. It’s very convenient when you have an instant pot. It saves time.
Kids and adults would love this soup a lot. You can have this soup for lunch or dinner. The best combination that goes well with this soup would be noodles. If you cannot finish the soup, you can leave it in the instant pot and reheat it the next day. This is the best and fastest way to make a soup with an instant pot. If you have an instant pot, try this recipe and enjoy it.
