Thanksgiving Turkey

You may already have your own way to make turkey.  This is for people who do not.  I heard someone on the radio briefly say how they make turkey in 2005 (our first Thanksgiving as a married couple) and I wanted to make my first turkey, so when I got home I jotted it down as best I could remember.  It is super yummy and very tender.  I love it!!!

oven baking bag
2 sticks of butter, melted
1 cup red wine
Whatever spices you like (I use salt, pepper, savory, cumin, rosemary, sage, celery seed, thyme, oragano, and basil)- 1 tsp. each
1 turkey
Combine spices into 1 melted butter stick.  Rub on turkey skin.
Put turkey (after bags are removed) in an oven baking bag (prepare the turkey according to directions that the cooking bag gives you)
mix 1 stick of melted butter with spices (again- 1 tsp. both times) and wine.  Pour mixture inside and around the turkey.
Cook the turkey according to the directions on the cooking bag!
