We had our Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday with family that came up to visit and to see Thomas' performance. We had 20 people including little Emmy. I baked a 33 pound turkey that we bought locally. We actually would see him and his friends free ranging throughout the summer as we drove by this farm often. Yes, we have been eating turkey every day since. Knowing that on Thanksgiving day it would just be our family and that we would be working for much of the day, I decided to keep it simple with turkey soup and pie. Abby made chocolate cream.
Another tradition is eggnog. The children love and we buy it just this one time each year. I thought it quite interesting that neither Sarah nor Abraham had any idea how to open this kind of top to pour. I guess it is a bit old fashioned now as most cartons have the plastic screw cover now.
How was your Thanksgiving?
