Brining must be the "new black"

I have made plans a while back to brine our turkey this year for Thanksgiving. I got my brining mix from Williams-Sonoma a few weeks ago. It seems lately, the news and magazine have been touting giving turkeys a brine bath is the latest and greatest thing.

I started the brine yesterday afternoon. This year, we decided to have just a turkey breast, since a whole turkey was quite a bit. I have to say, brining the bird certainly kicks ass. What's nice about it is that the texture of the breast meat after cooking is very similar to dark meat. It was very moist and juicy.

Now, if you excuse me, I need to get running. We're going to Glendale tomorrow to catch Depeche Mode and I need to start packing. But not after a quick break on the PS2.
