Today was our Thanksgiving meal. Our son has to work and so we brought our meal forward. The meal was very good. I had planned it around what each one would like. I had to go to the garage to have an indicator working, They put in a bulb and on my way. To pick up Prescriptions and last minute details. I had the table fully extended and the table was looking nice. I did have candles just in case heavy snows will give us a power outage.
I made several Spark vegetables sides and everyone enjoyed the meal. I bought egg nog and soda. Just for the special day. We have not had our youngest son home for Thanksgiving so it made the early holiday celebration so much better with the family here.
I asked for a 12 pound Turkey but Monday they said the only turkeys were much larger. and
did I want it. I could not thaw the Butterball and all I could say was yes. I had a big appointment with DH eyes and so I knew it was gong to be hectic for me. I went out this morning to get prescriptions and fruit. Expected to be home cooking Turkey but DH prescriptions were not in stock and so I had a rub around on the phone to find a pharmacy who has the eye drops. I got home at 11am and I could not lift the 19 pound turkey because of my back. Our son carried it up and I prepped it and discovered it was so big I had n o room to add the top shelf.
We had lots of veggies and The family helped whilst DH put the BBQ away and emptied some flower pots so they will not split.
Our Granddaughter also helped and she saw the snow and asked if she could catch a snow flake on her tongue. The dogs are not liking SNOW.
We had a really long meal and I had made Key lime pie for them and Vegan Key lime for myself using Avocado-I liked it.
I had bought Holiday English crackers -you pull them and they always have little jokes inside. We all read our jokes and put on our paper hats and each one had a trinket. They were all musical instruments so we were blowing and laughing and had great time seeing everyone happy, since for a while not seen.
It was a really good day.
