Life and Godliness - 2 Peter 1:3
Our children will all be out of town. We will likely keep it very simple. We are actually looking forward to a quiet weekend of rest.Blessings, andrea
Hi Rebecca, cute turkey photo! After years of roasting huge turkeys, a few years ago I started serving two turkey breasts and a large ham...since most of the family prefer the white meat of the breast. The dressing was always in a separate pan anyway, plus the breasts are easier to handle. Thanksgiving is my most favorite holiday! I even enjoy the planning!
I just wanted a reg meal, But DH and Jacob threw a fit wanting turkey and the works.So I guess I will need to go to the store rofl
Andrea, We've had holidays like yours. And they were fine with us :)
Wanda, I missed the 44cent/pound turkeys last week. I will serve ham, too, so maybe will do what YOU are doing - breast only! Thanks for the idea :)
Renee, Sure! Why not? Actually, for the past 25-30 thanksgivings I always think, "I should get a couple of turkeys and bake one in January or Feburary! They really aren't that hard to bake and the meat goes a long way...."Enjoy your meal and holiday.
Rebecca, that is so true, I like making turkey Autumn salad, I have recipe on my blog, and I like making big pot pies :)Oh on Jacobs doe, no that is not his first, he has his buck pic on his blog also, Him and I have hunted the last 5 years :) Jeff(DH) is not much of a hunter :)
We will be having whatever my lovely daughter-in-law decides to serve! And I don't care what it is as long as I don't have to cook it!!! Love Di
I love turkey for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Ham at Easter....more habit than anything else I think.....I also now only buy the breast of the turkey where I always roasted the 12 - 15 lb turkeys in my past life.....:-) Hugs
We are going to my sister-in-law's this year and she'll be serving turkey (our usual Thanksgiving dinner, neither her kids nor our kids would have it any other way!), and my kids are even disappointed that it's not at our house this year, so I am doing ANOTHER turkey dinner here at our house on the Sunday after Thanksgiving!Good thing I like turkey!And, in the past I have done just the turkey breast but got complaints! It's just as well I make a big turkey because my favorite is the dark meat and my son loves the turkey legs!Cute post!All the best,Eileen
Eileen, I'm easily influenced. I think I will do a whole turkey - not just a breast. More prefer breasts here, but a few like the dark meat.....Actually, Diana's way sounds great to me, too! Let someone else fix it!
My husband is cooking the turkey--his suggestion. He invited his daughter so it will just be 3 of us--lots of turkey left-overs.
Donna, Leftovers are actually my favorite parts of Thanksgiving dinner :)
Once again we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with my daughter Amy's in-laws. We've been doing this ever since the kids got engaged. The nice thing is that they also include my parents. It's one big gathering whever every family contributes a dish. This year, I get to have a 4 generations photo taken with Amy, her daughter Eliana, my mom & I. Can't wait.God's blessings on your Thanksgiving!
My dad is cooking for all of us this year. We are having turkey and ham. Blessings upon your thanksgiving my sweet friend.
