Easter Turkey and Roseola

A quick update. I took my little guy to the pediatrician's this morning and they think he has roseola. Bless his heart, he has been so pitiful. I have been up two nights in a row with him. I honestly don't know how I'm functioning, but somehow I am. Last night he scared me because his temperature got to 104.4 and he has never had one that high. Thank goodness for Motrin. We were able to get it down. He is still running a little bit of a temperature today, so I guess we will see if the rash starts to appear tomorrow. Since he has been so sick, I kind of hope it is roseola so we don't have to worry about him catching it again. Bless his heart. It is so hard to see them so sick and pitiful.

I took a picture of my 21 pound turkey I cooked for Easter. I think Martha would have been proud. When I first got married, my mother in law told me she always does turkey's in the roaster bags. I was telling a friend on the phone the other day that I use the roaster bags and she hadn't seen them, so I took a picture of the box in case any of y'all have never used them. I have always had great luck doing turkey's in the roaster bag. You can see the bird was so tender the drumsticks just came right off.

Everyone thought the sides came out great. I think I might enjoy them better than the turkey. I bought Rhodes brand frozen yeast rolls that you let rise and I had awesome luck with those. I think I could make a whole meal out of good yeast rolls. All slathered with butter (I know bad, bad for you). But mmm, they are so good.

I'm going to end my post for now. I need rest. I hope to check back in soon. I hope y'all had a wonderful Easter holiday.
