My invitation to dinner fell through and I'll be spending my time sewing up the cursed Halloween quilt so I can get it out of the house. Otherwise, I'm sure to lose my lovely tall white hat to this huge 15 pound turkey.
What in the world will I do with all that meat? I'll have sandwich after sandwich, that's what. Truthfully, it will be a "wrap" since I've given up brad .... I mean bread. I'd keep Brad for sure. At any rate, my turkey sittith upside down because it's not thawed out yet, even after four days in the fridge. I may have to get out my hair dryer!
This beauty is one of the perks of the Magic Kingdom. We all get a turkey every year for our hard work. THIS year it's a Costco Butterball ... highly prized among the peasants. I promise to do my best to make it edible for the puppies and I.
In spite of the rain (or probably because of it) the scenery has been spectacular in my back yard. We don't usually see these white puffy things. They've closed down Highway 80 to Reno and Highway 99 over the Grapevine due to snow. Forecasts say down into the low 30's at night for the rest of the week. I guess winter finally came calling.
I've got a great new recipe for you, but it will have to wait until tomorrow. Today I'm being extra thankful for all my friends, RV and otherwise, for my good fortune to have a warm house in spite of the Halloween Quilt Curse and plenty of food on the table, not to mention my wonderful two four-legged companions who keep me going.
I want to give a shout out to George Yates, who singlehandedly taught me how to roast a chicken on the barbecue, and who inspired me to cook more of his amazing recipes. If it weren't for George, I would still be eating lean cuisine. I'm asking for prayers and blessings for him as he fights that horrible disease cancer. I'm extra thankful to have come to know him and his wife Suzie.
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, eat lots of turkey and most of all, EAT DESSERT ..... LOT'S OF DESSERT!!!
