RECIPE: Herb roasted chicken breast

Roasting the turkey at 325 degrees and allowing it to rest for fifteen minutes ensures that it will be very moist.

Serves 6 to 8

  • 1 whole bone-in turkey breast (6½  to 7 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons good olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (3 cloves)
  • 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ½  teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¾ cup dry white wine

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place the turkey breast on a rack in a roasting pan, skin side up.

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, mustard, rosemary, sage, thyme, salt, and pepper. Rub the mixture evenly all over the skin of the turkey breast. (You can also loosen the skin and smear half of the paste underneath, directly on the meat.) Pour the wine into the bottom of the roasting pan.

Roast the turkey for 1½  to 1 ¾ hours, until the skin is golden brown and an instant-read meatthermometer registers 165 degrees when inserted into the thickest and meatiest area of the breast. Check the breast after an hour or so; if the skin is overbrowning, cover it loosely with aluminum foil.

When the turkey is done, remove from the oven, cover the pan with aluminum foil, and allow the turkey to rest atroom temperature for 15 minutes. Slice and serve warm with the pan juices.

Man erects giant middle finger aimed at ex-wife’s house

And you thought your breakup was bad.

Deadline Detroit is reporting that Alan Markovitz, a strip club owner, erected the statue flipping the bird when he found out his ex had a two year affair with a man he knew.

The thing is 12 feet high, cost $7,000 dollars, and is even lit up at night.

The daughter of his ex tweeted out a picture with the text “How psychotic do you have to be to buy the house directly next to your ex wife and then put a statue up like that?!?! Real classy alan.” She has also complained that it disrupts her when she is trying to take a nice calm bath due to the way it faces the house.

According to Markovitz it all boils down to the bro-code, telling Deadline Detroit that “this is about him. This is about him not being a man. He broke the Man Code. He’s a total freakin’ asshole. Real men don’t do that to another guy.”

Well if you’re heartbroken I suppose this is one way to make yourself feel better.

LISTEN: Sarah Thomson slams Ford for culture of homophobia and bullying

On today’s #TOpoli radio show panelists Sarah Thomson, Travis Myers, Andrea Houston, and Josh Rachlis discussed recent breaks in the brutal murder case of Christopher Skinner, a gay Toronto man who was run down in the Entertainment District.

In a bizarre twist it turns out that one of those apprehended, Nicholas Swaby, was a captain with the Don Bosco Eagles football team that Rob Ford coached. Swaby had spoken publicly in the past about what a great role model Ford was to him.

Listen to the panel discuss: was Ford’s culture of homophobia and bullying a contributing factor in the murder of Christopher Skinner?

Jon Stewart skewers Ford over his latest comments about female genitalia

It didn’t take long for Ford’s outburst about female genitalia — in which he managed to degrade not only a woman who once worked for his office and his wife, but women everywhere — made it down to the late night talk shows in the USA.

Check out what Jon Stewart said about Ford’s latest outburst on the Daily Show and let us know what you think: if you think smoking crack, deriding minorities, defaming gays isn’t enough to ask Ford to step down, are his comments about women enough?

The Toronto Star obtains video of distraught Ford uttering death threats

On Thursday the Toronto Star obtained footage of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford in a seriously agitated state threatening to kill an unknown person. The mayor later gave statement to reporters that he was inebriated in the video, but went no further than that. It is unknown if he means he was drinking or under the influence of drugs when this recording was taken.

This comes only days after Ford’s own admission that he had smoked crack cocaine while the controversy and charges surrounding his criminal associate Sandro Lisi rage on.

Check out the Toronto Star’s video above and let us know what you think is going on in this most recent tape.
