My sister Tish, and my niece Cessany came to spend some time with us for Thanksgiving. Cessany wanted beach time even though it was November. H was off work for the week and Andrew was home for a few – but short – days. Our friend Merilyn also joined us for the big day.
After cooking for two evenings and one morning we decided we had enough food to feed Fort Polk. Andrew learned how to debone a chicken and make gumbo. He also carved the turkey. I wonder if he will ever again use those skills. And speaking of Andrew – it’s his 23rd birthday today! 😊
We laughed a lot and some sang. We all ate too much and we were merry, We also learned a few things while having fun.
- A 20 pound turkey CAN be cooked in an 8 pound cooking bag. (Don’t ask)
- Don’t cook and sing – someone may snap chat it when you aren’t looking.
- 4 people can fit comfortably in a tiny kitchen and cook together – if enough wine is available.
- Beach time to some is 70 degrees with a brisk wind blowing from the north.
How was your Turkey Day?
