Dead dinde...

We're celebrating Thanksgiving today rather than yesterday because it's Friday and a little easier to relax into the weekend than to gear up for another work day...the results are in on the contest to guess the price of our eight pound turkey (see him below)... no winners, not even close really.... When Beth unwrapped our bird she was surprised to find herself face to face with it. Needless to say the kids were fascinated.

When I told my students this morning that it's not unusual to cook a 20 lb turkey for our Thanksgiving celebrations back home, one kid asked me if our turkeys were on steroids...a good question perhaps, in any case we had a good laugh about it.

Here's the menu Beth has prepared for this evening:

Relish tray with ranch dressing

Turkey w/stuffing
Roast potatoes & gravy
Green bean casserole
Green salade

Squash tort
Confiture & cranberries
Cheese plate
Apple pie & ice cream

One might need the wine to look that turkey in the face- haha! Hope it was wonderful, Much Love, Erin
