Thanksgiving 2010



     What a great day!  Eat your hearts out, SkipnDonna.  Everything went like clockwork.  We ate at 2:30 and all ingredients and the weather cooperated perfectly.  Jeri's stove has three burners and ours has two.  We used them all.  Mashed potatoes, butternut squash, turnips (rutabagas, if you will), cornbread stuffing, gravy from Trader Joe's, a bottle of Riesling and, of course, a fifteen pound fresh turkey (deep fried).  There was just enough peanut oil and just enough propane so disasters were averted.  After a suitable respite, Jeri produced an apple/pecan streusel pie a la mode for desert.
     The first picture shows Cindy and our next-door neighbor campers watching the Patriots.  As regular readers know, I'm usually behind the camera.  Thanks for the third picture, Jeri.  As you can imagine, we will be doing a replay tomorrow.  Nobody wanted any turkey sandwiches tonight.

Everything sounds delicous. Glad Jeri could make it. Sorry Donna and Skip couldn't. Okay, your weather was better than ours, but we have the Patriots.

Looks like your Thanksgiving gathering was a success! The turkey looks wonderful and the pie at the end was the perfect finish.

Yee Gads - we are eating our hearts out. Glad you all had a great time and we truly wish we could have been there. Maybe another year.
The best to all...
