    OMG, Nikki, this looks fabulous! I am making Christmas dinner this year and I wanted to do a “practice Christmas” a couple weeks ago since it was my first time roasting a turkey. I haaaaaated man-handling the turkey’s giblets and neck (blaaaah). This is SO much easier, nicer to the turkey :) and looks tasty! I definitely want to snag this idea for the future.
