Yesterday was thanksgiving.. today we returned the kitchen to the table for 3 and it seemed HUGE, only the meal before the room was full and the meal was terrific! I know I just ate it again. We did it, this post luck thing went better than well & AS use mom.. there was MORE than enough food. Amen.
BUT... that was almost not the case. I was to decorate and Norm to put he Turkey in the oven @ 9:30a.m.! The table was set, last details added around, candles lit, wine chilled..
I got ready - I could smell the turkey a couple o hours in and I was already hungry!
My mom arrived early to help out - she did all the veggies and fixing!
For as long as I can remember Storm bugs Nanny to open the oven to see the Turkey & she says "No" we can't... for what ever reason she did look this time when he asked, thank Goodness - The Turkey was in upside down. lol And at the wrong temperature! Oh no - company not yet arrived and I had visions of theTurkey from the Movie 'Christmas vacation'
Mom flipped the bird - Literally- turned the oven down and kept basting... lol - It tasted terrific, it was cooked to perfection!
We sure giggled over it today I can tell you.
The Ham my aunt made was OMGosh Good, I regret telling them 'I only wanted a small portion of the left over'- Storm does too! Elly made a salads- a broccoli combination - with bacon and cheese - I choose it over ham this evening. I'll share the recipe If I can get it. Sierra made a Pumpkin Pie.. that was, I imagine - the best pumpkin pie I ever imagined. ;)
The meal was wonderful but the day itself was beautiful and it felt blessed, to me anyhow.
Laughs, food and a ThanksGiving that was just a wonderful day to be with those we love.
I think it was the first 'celebration' we have had in a while. There is much to celebrate.
I am tired - still. Today was another gorgeous day - I could not bring myself to do - anything. I napped and felt almost too tired to even think.
I am too tired to blog.. lol
Tomorrow is a new day.
