Rosemary Orange Roasted Turkey Breast

This cold, snowy weather has me craving comfort food.   I picked up a hotel style turkey breast a little while back and earmarked this recipe to try.   I never have wine on hand, but a google search said that rice wine vinegar could be substituted (1/2 the amount, the remainder water or broth).   The recipe calls for using an orange for garnish, but instead I cut it into wedges and put it inside the cavity with some additional rosemary.   So simple and so delicious.
