Roasting a turkey in April - how to make it a Spring meal?

maviris | Apr 17, 2007 03:18 PM

I have a frozen turkey that has been filling a large portion of my freezer for too long now. I'll roast it this weekend when I have some friends over for dinner. I don't have access to a grill or deep fryer so it has to go in the oven.

Although the weather feels like November, I don't want to make it a Thanksgiving-in-April. So, I'll probably skip the heavy sides (stuffing, mashed potatoes).

I'm seeking your suggestions for making it the centerpiece of a Spring meal - in terms of flavoring/basting for the turkey or side dishes.

My only thought for the turkey is perhaps a citrus-miso rub, but I am not sure. I _always_ make a lemon-sage version with wild mushroom gravy (Cooking Light) for Thanksgiving so I don't have much of a turkey repetoire.

Thanks so much!
