More Turkey and Easy Clean Up

Good morning,

We didn't get enough turkey on Thanksgiving so we had another Thanksgiving on Saturday at our home.  Here daughter Catherine is making stuffed mushrooms.  She made a fantastic dinner for fourteen of us, some of whom didn't get to the dinner at son Don's on Thanksgiving Day.
Catherine made two turkeys!  One on the grill...
...and one in the oven.
Here Erik waits to help with cleanup.
Penny and Erik do a great job of getting the dishes ready for the dishwasher.  ;)

Do you celebrate holidays over many days?  We sure do here!  The food just goes on and on until we have gotten together with all family and friends. 

All the best,
Lois

Lois, the move-able feast is always wonderful during the holidays :-)

By the way, is that a piece of Noritake china on the floor next to Penny?

Have a lovely Holy Day season!

Lucky you to have a daughter who likes to cook! And you have a cleanup crew (Penny and Erik) too!

Ahh! You're back from the ship so I get to see more Lab pictures!!!

Hi,

Yes, the doggies sure are helpful. Everything is Lab Tested and Dishwasher Pre Washed. :)))

Beth, that dinnerware is at least 50 years old. It is not Noritake. It's Royal (something). I bought extra pieces long ago and it was pretty expensive so I developed a new appreciation for it! The bowl is also very old - Pyrex. It's a favorite for about everything we make. I'm very fortunate to have all of my mothers kitchen "stuff." I love using it and remembering when she used it.

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by and for your kind comments. :)

All the best,
Lois

Even though I don't like turkey, these look so appealing.

Are you home for a while now? I did not know.

That's a HUGE bird! The dogs look happy!

It looks and sounds wonderful! We usually do just the one day, but the left-overs are soooo good!

The turkeys look delicious!

Lois, if we invited Catherine over to visit would she cook dinner here? What a wonderful treat she prepared!
