Thanksgiving Weekend Images
I've finally had a chance to sit down and format some images that I took last weekend.
These first two images are of turkey #1 that was grilled outside. The ice pack is to freeze that area so that it would cook slower and not burn while the rest of the turkey was being grilled.
This is the turkey preparer, our daughter Catherine. Above she has turkey #2 that was prepared in the oven.
They were both fantastic! We thought we would have 19 for Thanksgiving dinner, but part of the family couldn't get to Cincinnati so we were down to only 13 guests.
Catherine even made her own turkey broth for dressing and soup that we enjoyed later in the weekend.
I got so busy on Thanksgiving that I didn't take many pictures of the guests or the table when we finally got it set. We had another section in the table and it looked quite different with a blue tablecloth and many more place settings on Thanksgiving. The image above was taken the following night and the table is set for the seven of us still here. We hosted four of our grandchildren for the weekend while their parents had a little couple time.
Everything that comes out of our kitchen has been Lab tested.
We have two very experienced Lab testers. ;)
So, this is my "night after Thanksgiving" dinner. It was even better the second time around.
Having four of the kids here for the weekend was fun, too. Alex borrowed Grandpa's Blackberry tablet to play some games. Fun!
I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday as much as we did.
