Last week as the flock of turkeys made their way in front of our house I thought that I needed to get a photo of it for my Thanksgiving post. They were even mulling aroud yesterday morning, and what did I do? I played with my nephew, Lawrence.
Turkey vs. Lawrence, well Lawrence wins everytime!
So, I guess I am the turkey this year. LOL
I didn't see if they were mulling around this morning, because I was too busy making dressing or stuffing, whatever you call it.
This year we are doing things a little different. The heating element in my mom's oven is out, but she has the most room at her house for all the family. So, my sister and I are making the meal and mom is making desserts that don't have to be baked.
I made the corn dip I make every year, deviled eggs, and two types of dressing. My dad is gluten-free, and I was determined to make him his own special dressing. Then, I also made some regular dressing. This is the first time I've ever made dressing. Hopefully, it will turn out okay.
My sister is making the turkey, mashed potatoes, spicy pretzels, and green bean stuff. It isn't really a green bean casserole, so we call it "stuff". This is the first time she's ever made the turkey, so we almost had a catastrophe on our hands. She didn't realize it took so long to thaw a turkey, so as of yesterday morning she hadn't bought one. We fixed that. We went to our local meat market and bought a fresh one. :)
I think we are all set. Now, I just have to figure out how to keep all of this warm for the three hour drive.
Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!
Hope you have a fabulous day!
