I left all that figuring in the capable hands, of Doug and Kris. The time to eat was set for 2, but we were seriously late! Due to a slow cooking turkey or a couple of late turkeys (the guys were in the shop too long!).
When the turkey was finally done, it was so delicious. We really enjoyed it and the whole family liked the flavor, even if we did use the cheaper oil. I think we might just have to try this again for Christmas dinner.
We had a beautiful Thanksgiving, fellowship-wise and weather-wise. It snowed and snowed and then the day after TG, all the ones who could -went for a snowmachine ride. The temperature has been steadily dropping since TG. When the guys (and Kim) went riding it was 0F. It is -10F cold now! I am once again thankful for the woodstove! Right now, the snow is sparkling like miniature Christmas lights outside.
Beautiful lights just like the ones we put on the tree last night. Today we have been putting up the rest of Christmas tree decorations. We want to put more lights up around the windows and the deck, but it's too cold to be outside right now.
Keep warm Alaska!
Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, but when they lit a fire in the craft it sank -- proving once and for all that you can't have your kayak and heat it, too.(Online groaner joke)
