I’m definitely thankful that my wife was here to celebrate it with me!
She’s a German gal, and since turkey isn’t native to Germany and they don’t celebrate the day the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, she’d never baked a turkey before. She did a great job! She whipped up a tasty 11.5 lb bird stuffed with a cranberry/minced-meat stuffing, and it was delicious! She topped it off with an apple cake, too.
We ended up eating dinner with some friends, so we shared our delictables with others, and got to sample some other varieties of turkey, ham, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, etc, etc, etc. It was all good.
We spent the next day in the gym. I probably ought to have hopped on the treadmill a bit longer than I did, as it was I only really gave myself a good legs workout.
