But seriously, who doesn’t love roast turkey with gravy? Only some days it’s just too hot to have the oven on to roast a turkey. As was the case last week when my Colonel came home for a few days.
I had this turkey breast in our freezer that I had planned on making for dinner his first night home, only it was HOT that day and our A/C unit decided NOT to work.
So instead of having the oven on all afternoon I pulled out my crock pot and put the turkey breast in and a few hours later, the most delicious moist roast turkey breast was ready for our dinner.
