Well.. how was your Thanksgiving dinner? For those in other countries, I sure wish you could have this holiday.. giving thanks for everything and a big yummy dinner with family and friends.. what's not to love? Dayle roasted a 25.5 lb. fresh turkey and it turned out spectacular and delicious!
Kristi made a big batch of deviled eggs, unfortunately the eggs were very fresh and it took her 45 minutes to peel them as the shells were not coming off easy. She called them "misery" eggs. :-) They were delish!
Kristi was amazingly helpful yesterday, she peeled my fresh yams and my son Travis chopped them (they are very hard) and she also peeled my potatoes. I have always been the potato masher. I also made the giblet gravy, Dayle cooked and chopped them for me.
Turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, candied yams, corn casserole, mashed potatoes, giblet gravy, home made orange cranberry sauce and fresh baked rolls, along with Martinelli's sparkling cider and pumpkin pie for dessert! :-)
Before we dined, we went around the table and told what we're thankful for. Caleb was thankful for our family, all the food we made and his cousins, Mike and Gabe. We were all thankful for our family and the good meal. Want a bite?
My son Shawn, his wife Beth, their boys Mike and Gabe.. and grandpa.
Our son Travis, his wife Kristi, Caleb and Hayden.
This morning when I came out to the family room this is what I saw - Grandpa piled with little boys and a dog all covered up with a blanket.
I did manage to finagle the guys into putting up our new Christmas tree today - then we had leftovers and we have been relaxing and watching Percy Jackson and the Olympians on TV. I will begin the decorating tomorrow. The amazing thing about this tree is you can turn it on white lights, colored lights, or blinking back and forth. :-)
I hope you had a wonderful weekend, wherever you are on this wonderful spinning globe. Thanks for visiting! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
