Thanksgiving

What a full Thanksgiving weekend we had.  A going away party on Friday, a small group Thanksgiving Saturday (picture above), and another Thanksgiving dinner at Dave’s coworkers home on Sunday.  Thank goodness we had Monday off! 

I thought I would share some of the food I cooked this weekend, including the 19lb turkey below.  It was oiled on the outside, with rosemary tucked under the skin of the breasts and thighs.  Inside was a homemade herb stuffing that was delicious.  The recipe was from Canadian Living.  It was pretty extensive (I made a chicken stock for the gravy which took 4hrs to simmer down), but it was worth the effort.

I also made an rum soaked apple rosemary pie from the Beekman 1802 cookbook.  And I really nailed the crust this time.  Another delicious dish.

I hope your Thanksgiving was just as good as ours, filled with people you love, and that you also squeezed in some rest.  Time to start thinking about Christmas planning now…
