RECIPES FOR THIS THANKSGIVING DAY


Thanksgiving Day is here and if you still do not know what to serve for dinner here are some suggestions... 
BUT WE HOPE THAT THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN TO YOU!
 Many people are looking for ways to give a different twist to turkey. This meal suffers from a bad reputation because some people think it lacks flavor and is very juicy, but it  doesn´t need to be so. We present some simple recipes that you might enjoy. 
 We recommend that instead of spraying the turkey with spices or liquids that you have prepared, is best to inject the turkey, it gives much better flavor that penetrates and expands around the turkey, instead of staying on the surface.
 A little white wine and the same amount of apple juice, will give a different flavor to any recipe you tried
