Looking for something easy to prepare this holiday season? With Hefty Freezer Bags & Hefty Slider Bags, I was able to throw together an early Thanksgiving bruncheon in a pinch preparing marinated turkey breast served alongside sliced grilled pineapple and sweet yam fries.
Robert Frost wrote of autumn, “My sorrow, when she’s here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane.” Yet, just as the drear of autumn is upon us, and just as the short lived days of winter have wrapped us in their icy grasp, the season for feasting is upon us.
It’s safe to say, however, that the grander the feast the ‘grander’ the amount of planning and work it requires to pull off. It was with precisely that in mind that I wrote just recently about a citrus recipe I had developed for Thanksgiving, and how I had done so at the end of a particularly long day. Whether spurred on by repeated requests for content surrounding ‘ease’ and ‘time conservation,’ or through my own wrestling with my schedule, I decided I wanted to try to put together a proper ‘feast’ while both conserving time and cutting down on complexity, but without sacrificing any the flare or flavor – just the opposite.
To do this, I decided, I would put together three exceptionally seasonal recipes, each perfect for Thanksgiving – marinated Turkey served with grilled marinated pineapple, and yam fries.
To start things off, you’re going to need a pack of Hefty Storage Slider Bags, and a pack of Hefty Freezer Slider Bags. First, clean and slice your turkey as described below, and then place it in one of the zip lock Hefty bags. Now, prepare a marinade with lemon juice, cilantro, garlic and olive oil, as shown below, and combine that in the bag with the Turkey. It’s important to note that this can be done ahead of time, since the longer the turkey marinates the better it will taste.
