Thanksgiving Feast

Today of course was Thanksgiving and what better to share than some pictures of the feast.

Thanksgiving Turkey - Blow Up Turkey - Thanksgiving Decorations - Feast TimeI shared a meal with my friends Kevin and Tina and their boys. All my friends who know Tina totally understand this picture. She is great at celebrating holidays with fun decorations. I am glad that our turkey was not quite this big.

Turkey Time - Thanksgiving Feast - Thanksgiving - Burnt Basting - Good EatsThe turkey that we ate looked fabulous and yummy. It may look burnt, but it is only the glaze that was on the turkey. The turkey was really moist and had a great flavor.

I had a great time catching up with my friends and then it was time to set down for the meal.

Thanksgiving Meal - Turkey with Trimmings - Time for Thanks - Holiday Meals - Ready to EatThe table was set and it was time for the traditional Thanksgiving fare. Turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry, green bean casserole, rolls, gravy, stuffing and sparkling cider.

We also had some friends stop by who had already had their Thanksgiving meal and we enjoyed talking to them during dinner.

Then it was time for dessert with Pumpkin and Apple pie.

Thanksgiving Decorations - Inflatable Turkey - Gobble, Gobble - Turkey TimeWe had a nice visit before it was time to head for my next stop. On the way out I snapped another picture of the big Turkey. It looked really great at night.

I then stopped by my cousin’s house and had a nice visit with them before making it home. Now to digest a bit more before bed ๐Ÿ™‚

I will have a lazy day tomorrow while everyone is out shopping on Black Friday.

Are you still stuffed from your Thanksgiving meal?

    The turkey looks delicious. I’ve never tried any glazes on turkey, but maybe I’ll have to try something new next year.

    I guess you’ve already worked it all off, HA. That’s a giant blow up! Might be extra comical on a windy day since Turkeys are not know for their flying skills ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. Three years ago Darlene and I were enjoying a Hawaiian cruise. Today, as usual, we were invited to a traditional feast hosted by our daughter and son-in-law, who served turkey and dressing. We took green bean casserole, homemade pecan pie (my request), spiral-sliced ham, and cranberry salad. Guests brought many other side dishes and other desserts. After lunch, while the men watch football and the woman chatted, I finished carving the ham, retrieved the bone and small pieces to make Hambone Jambalaya Shrimp Soup in a few days.

    While drafting this comment, I am snacking on Chex Mix, which was leftover from the large batch we took to the get together. Also, Darlene and I shared pineapple jello, leftover from my prep for a colonoscopy last Monday morning. Just before the procedure, I told the surgeon that I weight five pounds less than the day before drinking the bowel cleansing concoction. He smiled and said, “You must have been full of it!” The nurse and anesthesiologist were amused; I was a good sport and smiled, having just been (pun intended) the butt of the joke. Afterwards, he showed me photos taken inside my colon, which he suggested that they were just in time for Christmas cards!
