This weekend we pretty much had a new version of Thanksgiving dinner.. and it was delicious! 


It was pretty simple and I found a new love while trying these recipes out! The videos are first and then I have some pictures and " notes " below! 











The brine was super easy to make. I was a little nervous about cooking 2 turkey breast in the brine so I am cooking one in the apple cider and 1 with just some salt, pepper, garlic powder and fresh sage. 

Once the turkey was in the oven, I started in on the squash. 


cut it in half.. 


and scrape out the seeds and slice it up. It was hard to slice up so I had Scott do it for me. 


You only need salt, pepper, olive oil and nutmeg.. 

and then roast it in the same oven you are cooking the turkeys in. I took the roasted squash out of the oven after about 15 minutes and let the Turkeys cook a little longer. 

In the mean time I made the browned butter


Just add 2 sticks to a skillet..

Then I fried in fresh sage leaves.. 



until they were nice and crispy! 


OMG.. these are Ammmmazing. I swear.. just try them. They will be so yummy with potatoes! 

The turkeys came out looking great! 



I also quickly sauteed some 


up.. with just some..


olive oil, salt and pepper, garlic powder, and nutmeg! 


I served the squash and spinach up together! 


I sliced up the turkey and put it in the apple cider juices.. 


I took the other turkey topped it with some gravy 


This was for husby! 




These were really good too! 


This dinner was really good! 


The boys ate it up.. and I am so happy I tried the fried sage leaves. They are so good.. give it a try!
