A Turkey dinner and a yummy apple crisp for dessert!

Good morning everyone!!I hope you all are having a great day!!I just wanted to tell everyone what a great dinner we had last night!I made a turkey dinner with all the trimmings(not stuffing though)We have one of thoes Showtime rotisseries.I got it for Christmas several years ago.It is worth every penney!!I highly recommend everyone buying one!!Anyway,I brushed the turkey with olive oil,sage,and sea salt.I cooked it in the rotissary.It took only 2 hours for a 9 pound turkey to roast to perfection!We also had mashed potatoes,oven roasted asparagus,buttered carrots,homemade biscuits,and for dessert apple crisp.It only took about 2 hours from start to finish which wasn`t long at all for all that food!It was so nice to eat a meal with my family and not have anyone complainin that they don`t like this or that:)Ihave included recipes below.
The turkey,mashed potatoes,and carrots were just basic recipes,but I never roasted asparagus in the oven before.It was so good this way!All you do is preheat your oven to 350 then lay the asparagus flat on a cookie sheet.Coat them with salt and olive oil.Roast them for about 30 minutes or until they are tender enough to suit your taste.That`s it.they taste so much sweeter in the oven!
Now for the Apple crisp:
Keep the oven at 350 after you take the asparagus out.yOU WILL NEED A 9x13 inch casserole dish.Take about 6 regular firm and crisp apples like red delicious or granny smith.Peel and slice them.Place in baking dish.Sprinkle with cinnamon and about 1/2 cup o brown sugar.Cube about two Tablespoons of butter up and dot the apple mixture with it.Bake for about 15 minutes.While it`s baking make your crumb topping.You will need:!/2 cup brown sugar,1/2 cup flour,1/4 cup cold butter.In a small bowl,blend all ingredients with a fork or your fingers until it becomes crumb like.When the 15 minutes are up top apples with the crumbs and bake another 30 minutes.Remove from oven and let cool a while.It will be very hot!!

The biscuits were good,but I need to perfect the recipe a bit more before I post it:)
I hope you enjoyed these recipes and I hope they will be a blessing to you and your families!!Have a wonderful day!!!

Ohhhh!!!! I have a turkey in my freezer! It just might be that bird's big day coming up! But he is a 30 pounder! Don't think he'd fit on the rotisseree.

I see you are doing the biscuit thing, too. I did my recipe about 4 times now, and I think I'm getting it down. You might want to check back in my posts about my biscuit fiasco!!!!! Cora
