Poor turkey! Somehow our bird was missing his wing. Boy was it tasty though! We decided to spend the extra money to buy a free-range, organic turkey from Sun Prairie, WI....totally worth it. The orange Home Depot bucket (not so local or organic) in the left-hand corner of the picture is where the turkey enjoyed it's brine bath the night before....we learned the importance of brining if you want a moist, flavorful turkey.
Now were at home shopping Black Friday sales online and listening to Christmas music on Pandora. Welcome Christmas! I will never forget reading a Bearenstein Bear book when I was a kid - it started off reading, "It was the day after Thanksgiving and the store windows were decorated for Christmas...." or something like that. I made my dad stop reading because I was sure he read it wrong. I guess when I was a kid I didn't realize that Thanksgiving and Christmas were so close to each other. Now it seems like Christmas will be here way too quickly!
For now, we'll continue to give thanks...
