Cooking tasks

My two cooking tasks today are from opposite ends of a few scales: 1. Make a vegan version of my Spanish lentil stew for work potluck tomorrow. 2. Go outside and use a dremel, wedge, and 2-lb sledgehammer to split beef marrow bones for Tuesday’s dinner.

Finished product

I see no reason to cook a whole turkey a different way than this. It comes out so well, and so easy to carve. And perhaps more importantly, it results in a large amount of excellent stuffing.

Reconstructed

I cooked the legs and wings sous vide. They have now been reunited with the breast, which has been roasting atop the stuffing, to crisp up.

It took quite a while to tip & tail all these.

Potatoes

The key to not having a ton of leftover mashed potatoes: the scale. Five ounces per person is plenty.
