Thanksgiving...yeah I know it's late

     Cindy did ask a couple of her unattached coworkers to join us for Thanksgiving. Both declined, so we stubbornly put together a traditional New England version for just the three of us. There was no brining of a large, specially ordered, fresh turkey; just a nine pound Butterball with some good poultry dry rub. The Traeger made it easy, and the remote wireless thermometer made it even easier.


      We ate at two because Cindy had to work. Durelle's stuffing was done in the oven instead of the turkey. We had butternut squash, a green bean casserole, boiled onions, mashed potatoes, cranberry jelly and lots of good gravy. Much later there was pecan pie.  As seen below, carving a small bird is more difficult than a larger one.


     You must hold your tongue just so. Behind the scenes, while the turkey was resting, there was gravy to be made, potatoes to mash, etc.


     We were really more organized than we looked. And the meal was just fine. We have much to be thankful for.
