Here is a recipe I thought you would like for the holidays

1 whole turkey
1 large lemon, cut into halves
salt and pepper to taste
butter or olive oil, whichever you prefer

Heat oven to 350 degrees

Rub butter or oil over the skin of the turkey until 
it is completely coated. Sprinkle with salt and 
pepper and any other seasonings you prefer.

Take a knife and gently separate the skin from 
the breast meat;  Slide  lemon  halves  under  
the  skin  with  the  peel  side  up, one on
each side.  This way the  juice from the lemon 

will release into the breasts.

Cover and bake for 30-45 minutes.   Remove cover 
and continue to roast until juices run clear, basting 
every 15-20 minutes.

If you've followed these steps correctly, your turkey should 
look like the one in the picture.

See picture below to make sure the finished product 
turned out correctly.

Bon Appetit!

Funny pic!

But that doesn't answer the question. Are you a breast man or a leg man. ;-)
