We had a wonderful Thanksgiving, thank you. I hope you did as well. We had smoked turkey, and a little rain, which interfered a little with the smoking of the turkey, but not fatally. We did bring the bird in and pop it in the oven for long enough to make sure the internal temperature got to that "done" level. I made dressing, apple pie and almond pie. Carl did the turkey. mmm We had some other stuff as well, a corn dish with cream cheese and green chili that has become a staple on these holidays, and baked sweet potatoes (never could take the sweet casserole dish).
The best part was that we weren't stressed out, trying to feed a lot of people, or worrying whether this person or that person would show up, or play nice or any of that stuff. We just had what we wanted, and sat and watched a movie while it was cooking. There wasn't even all that much clean-up, since we did that along the way, too.
So, sure, I'm tired. I got up early to help with the turkey, like one does. But I'm also very satisfied in a meal and a day well done. Hope you all had as thankful a day.
