Ina Garten's Roasted Turkey Roulade and Baked Sweet Potato "Fries"

I don't know anyone who looks forward to carving a turkey on Thanksgiving. You're at the table, everyone's watching, and you're struggling to carve a hot bird. Instead, I decided to make a roasted turkey breast stuffed with all kinds of delicious things--sausage, cranberries, and figs. No bones and it cooks to juicy perfection in under two hours. How easy is that?
Sweet potatoes are available year-round, but their prime season is really autumn and winter. Choose potatoes that are smooth and unblemished, and use them fairly soon because they don't keep as well as other potatoes. These potatoes are crispy like fries but they're better for you because they're baked. --Ina Garten

Roasted Turkey Roulade
(Serves 6 or 7)

3/4 cup large-diced dried figs, stems removed
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup Calvados or brandy
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
1-1/2 cups diced onions (2 onions)
1 cup (1/2-inch-diced) celery (3 stalks)
3/4 pound pork sausage, casings removed (sweet and hot mixed)
1-1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary leaves
3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
3 cups Pepperidge Farm herb-seasoned stuffing mix
1-1/2 cups chicken stock, preferably homemade
1 extra-large egg, beaten
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 whole (2 halves) turkey breast, boned and butterflied (5 pounds)
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Place the dried figs and cranberries in a small saucepan and pour in the Calvados and 1/2 cup water. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, then lower the heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large (12-inch) skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and celery and saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the sausage, crumbling it into small bits with a fork, and saute, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes, until cooked and browned. Add the figs and cranberries with the liquid, the chopped rosemary, and pine nuts, and cook for 2 more minutes. Scrape up the brown bits with a wooden spoon.
Place the stuffing mix in a large bowl. Add the sausage mixture, chicken stock, egg, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and stir well. (The stuffing may be prepared ahead and stored in the refrigerator overnight.)
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place a baking rack on a sheet pan.
Lay the butterflied turkey breast skin side down on a cutting board. Sprinkle the meat with 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Spread the stuffing in a 1/2-inch-thick layer over the meat, leaving a half-inch border on all sides. Don’t mound the stuffing or the turkey will be difficult to roll. (Place the leftover stuffing in a buttered gratin dish and bake for the last 45 minutes of roasting alongside the turkey.) Starting at one end, roll the turkey like a jelly roll and tuck in any stuffing that tries to escape on the sides. Tie the roast firmly with kitchen twine every 2 inches to make a compact cylinder.
Place the stuffed turkey breast seam side down on the rack on the sheet pan. Brush with the melted butter, sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, and roast for 1-3/4 to 2 hours, until a thermometer reads 150 degrees in the center. (I test in a few places.) Cover the turkey with aluminum foil and allow it to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. Carve 1/2-inch-thick slices and serve warm with the extra stuffing.

Baked Sweet Potato "Fries"
(Serves 4)

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled
2 tablespoons good olive oil
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus extra for sprinkling
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Halve the sweet potatoes lengthwise and cut each half into 3 long spears. Place them on a sheet pan and toss with the olive oil. Spread the potatoes in one layer. Combine the brown sugar, salt, and pepper and sprinkle on the potatoes. Bake for 15 minutes and then turn with a spatula. Bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Sprinkle lightly with salt and serve hot.

National Fruit Grower's Show - Council Bluffs, IA.
National Fruit Grower's Show - Council Bluffs, IA.
From back of image, notes by W. Stewart Keeline: National Fruit Growers Show in Council Bluffs This is a picture of the National Fruit Grower's Show in the auditorium at Council Bluffs. J.F. Wilcox and Sons furnished the flowers. W.S. Keeline was president of the National Fruit Growers and was instrumental in having the show held in Council Bluffs. John Sousa's band along with some opera singers played during the week of the show the first year. Pat Conway, with the opera singers played the week of the show during the second year. The auditorium was built by selling stock. The Railroads contributed heavily and then donated thier stock to the auditorium company, which was non-profit. The auditourium was built on concrete pillings and the bricks were laid in cement. During the shows an extensive shed was built around the auditorium, probably almost doubling the floor space. Exhibits were shown from all over the United States. For some reason the accoustics were exceptional. madam Shaman Hike and other famous stars performed in the buliding over the years. The Pure Food shows, the Mardi Gras and many amature plays were among the users of the building..... From Fruit Grower. Volume 20, no. 12. December 1908: The second fruit show of the National Horticultural Congress at Council Bluffs, Iowa, Nov. 15 to 20, was a very successful affair. The exhibits of fruits and vegetables were more extensive than at the first show, although some of the states represented a year ago were not on hand this year. Without disparaging any exhibit, it is perhaps not too much to say that the most interesting feature of the show was the display of fruit made by C. E. Mincer, Hamburg, Iowa, for Mr. Mincer's exhibit illustrated the educational value of fruit shows of this character. Mr. Mincer has charge of an orchard which was neglected for many years; when he took charge of it he began to spray the trees and otherwise care for them, and at the 1908 exhibition he showed some good fruit. It was not up to the standard of the Western fruit, however, either in quality or packing, and Mr. Mincer at once saw that he must improve his methods—and this he has done. He announced a year ago that he would be back for the show this year, and would make the Westerners hustle to get the premiums and he more than made good. His fruit was very fine as to quality and color; he had it packed in boxes by a young lady who had had experience in Idaho and as a result Mr. Mincer carried off some of the best trophies of the show. It is not in any way discreditable to the displays made from the irrigated sections to say that Mr. Mincer's exhibit was one or the very finest in the hall, and the young man is entitled to all the praise it received. The exhibit of the Western apples certainly stimulated this Iowa orchardist to take better care of his orchard, and results were very satisfactory, indeed. Just here it may not be out of place to say that last year, when Mr. Mincer saw the fruit from the irrigated districts, he asked the growers how they produced such perfect apples; he found that as a rule they have small orchards and give them the best of care. Mr. Mincer ha? only twenty acres under his care, and was told to concentrate his work on half this acreage. He really put in most of his work on seven acres, and has found that the small orchard well cared for is the one which produces the perfect fruit and makes the most money. Mr. Min cer had a fine crop of apples, which sold at high prices. He was offered $3 a bushel box straight through for his exhibit fruit at Council Bluffs. Idaho had good exhibits, notwithstanding some of the best fruit district? in that state had a short crop. Onlv three counties were represented in the Idaho exhibit, and the sweepstake? trophy for best commercial display was won by the Boise Commercial Club, and the trophy for the best general dis The "Brother Jonathan" trophy went to the Boise Cmomercial Club, Boise, Idaho. Several very fine entries were made for this cup, all of which were in every way creditable. FRUIT JUDGING CONTEST. A feature of the show which promises to become a very important one was the contest between teams representing the agricultural colleges of Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska, in judging apples. Each team consisted of five men, each trict display was won by the Council Valley, Idaho. The first prize for best county dis- play was won by Delta County, Colo. This exhibit, in charge of Dr. A. E. Miller and Mr. T. A. Richardson, was one of the features of the show. It would be hard to put up a better class of fruit than these gentlemen had on their tables. In awarding the premiums for plate displays the judges had to give many blue ribbons to Delta Coun- of whom were to pass upon certain ty fruit. The apples were absolutely plates of apples. In preparing these perfect as to color, size and quality, plates the varieties were mixed, a plata and the whole was well arranged. of

A list about a few of the wonderful things I miss.
Okay. When I turn off all the lights in the room I'm happy with the contrast and saturation of this photo. When the lights are on, however, the photo doesn't look as good. But I like it. When I was in Stratford yesterday evening I was reminded so much of home. There was a little row of houses which reminded me of the row of houses down by the wharf, and when we were by the river it was like a cross between being by the Mere with all the swans and being in the park by the river in Shrewsbury. It made me miss how beautiful the place is. I was just on Skype to my Dad and was listening to some REM songs, and it reminded me of how much I used to listen to REM, and how on some evenings I would sit in my Dad's study for ages and he would play me lots of different music. It's weird. This term I find that I'm okay with being at uni, and I've stopped hating the place, so when I say I miss home I don't mean it how I used to (which was something along the lines of "I hate it here, I'm miserable, I want to go home so badly"), because I'm not miserable, but home is home and I miss the lovely little town, and village life (the town hall events and people getting excited at raffles) and it's so lovely and sweet, and I miss my family because I think they're so wonderful and I enjoy talking to them so, so much. I love watching old movies with my Mom and knitting and playing video games against my brother and watching recent movies with him, and just talking and talking to my Dad and watching TV with them and taking photos of them, and going out places with them, and being able to hug them and being petty and belligerent and childish because I know at the end of the day they know I don't mean it. I miss my pets and the way Benny gets excited everytime he has to take his medicine; the way Abby's claws tip-tap across the floor and she attacks your feet at any opportunity; Coco's belligerent attention seeking and Emmy's battle to sleep on my brother's bed, and the way Toddy adores my brother so much that he follows him around like a lamb, and how O'Malley seems to love me during the day but at night turns assassin like and terrifies me. I even miss Barbara and her tapping against the tank when I'm late to feed her. And I miss the garden and the swing seat and all the lanterns and the massive lawn, and the rugs to sunbathe on and going out to take pictures in the rain and getting soaking wet but not really caring and all the beautiful flowers and sleeping late and reading the Sunday paper and staying in pyjamas all day simply because I feel like it and it not bothering anyone, and when I'm sad I can just go and sit in a room with my family and feeling so much better without needing to talk about it, and going out for lunch with my Mum and then arguing about politics in the car back, and family dinners at home where everyone talks about their day or something else of interest, or helping my Dad empty the washing machine, and tidying away the table and setting the table while telling my brother he should help out a bit, and watching my parents gardening or my Dad talking about potatoes or asparagus, or finding him outside in the evening and him telling me he's appreciating the little things in life and my Mum asking me if I'm sure her fringe is okay while I assure her that she looks lovely and knowing that my brother will either be in bed or on his playstation or at the gym, and how Benny snores when he's under the bed and O'Malley falls asleep on me in the evenings and I start to ache because I haven't moved for so long, or my Mom nagging me because I haven't hung my clothes up, and my Dad nagging me because I haven't tidied my room in years, or my brother just being annoyed at me because I won't leave him alone and can be ridiculously persistent when I want a hug. I even miss the childish way I dash up the stairs, late at night, when everyone's been asleep for hours except me, and I can hear tappings and creakings and my overactive imagination convinces me I must flee. And the marks where pins used to hold up bead and mirror chains above my old bedroom door that dangled down and banged against each other when you walked in, and the poem in the kitchen and the picture of sheep on the wall, and the blue painted frames hung around the house, and my Mum's copious amounts of flower arrangements in various vases and the old hamper basket and the floorboards that creak and the roses in the wash bowl and the windows that look over into the cow field which I check to tell if it's going to rain, and the photos and posters and postcards and poems around my room, and my overflowing bookshelves and CD racks, and the view out of my window onto the garden, and the willow tree, and the fields and hills and then my beloved College out of the other window, and my wardrobe that doesn't fit anything in it but I've had since I was five, and the wardrobe that was designed badly but has always been in the room, and the electric fire th
