Brine Time 2007

Right now, as I type, our 18lb turkey is sitting in
our fridge in a loverly brine solution that consists
of: sage, rosemary, 1 bay leaf, kosher salt + pepper,
and iced water. I know, I know, 18lbs. seems like a
lot of turkey for just the 3 of us, but what can I
say? We like to get our eat on! Craig is at home, making
cornbread for the dressing/stuffing and he's making
mama some wheat bread, too. I CANNOT wait to get
home so I can have some bread w/ butter and watch one
of my faves, America's Next Top Model, while
thinking of turkey the entire time. And all those
sides... who can forget about the sides?
