Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!  I hope you and yours are having a great one.  

I know I am.  I have already started to cook.  John has come over to help already.  My sister Valerie will be over later to eat with us.  It will just be the three of us this year but sometimes a small intimate group is nice!  

John and I will be cooking chicken this year.  That is right, chicken!  I thought it would be easier, and I want to take it easy this year.  Chicken, chicken stuffing, and chicken gravy.  Not that I don't have a turkey.  I have three!

I was given two turkeys because I am, well, poor.  You can call it low income, but I call it poor.  And then the third I got because I earned enough points shopping at Giant.  So they said to go pick out a turkey at the back of the store.  John and I went back there.  We had a choice of two brands.  I remember doing this last year and the birds were like 12 lbs. each.  This year I went to pick one out and all of the turkeys were giant!  All of them!  John looked around and pointed to one.  "How about this one", he asked?  I looked at it in shock.  "What, are you trying to get the largest one?"  "No," he said, "this is the smallest one here."  I looked at it.  It was 18.01 pounds! 

So now I will have a lot of turkey for the winter.  That is good because it stays frozen for six months and then after you cook it you can refreeze it for another three months.  This will save on my food bill this year. 

Well, I better get off here.  I need to get back to my cooking.  And I haven't eaten breakfast yet.  John came over this morning just to cook me breakfast and to help with the cooking!  He is such a sweetheart!  He is making bacon and eggs!  

Everybody have a fantastic Thanksgiving.  Love you all.

  4. Oh, I hope you all have an awesome Thanksgiving ---even if it's chicken instead of Turkey.  We ended up with two Turkey's in our freezer for later too.  We are off to KY--matter of fact I am going to hurry b/c I have spent too much time visiting in J land!  Will love to hear how the day went.  John is wonderful to cook breakfast.  I asked for bacon and eggs (knowing we only had eggs) - but it was fun to wish!
