I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.
We had most of our family with us...a couple of the married grands were other places and a grand living off in Portland (but he called us and just thrilled us to pieces). We're hoping they will ALL be here for Christmas.
We were blessed to have 13 around our Thanksgiving table and how thrilled we were to have them. They are all healthy, happy and busy and for this, we are thankful.
The 12 lb. turkey looked good, even BEFORE being roasted,
with all those citrus fruits, butter and herbs....:)
I used a different method of baking the turkey this year...
a recipe right out of COUNTRY LIVING, Nov. 2009.
I couldn't find THE recipe on their site...but THIS ONE is very close.
My turkey didn't look as PRETTY as theirs...but it was so tender and moist
and we ATE THE WHOLE THING. !! :)....NO LEFTOVERS.....yay!!
MR. SWEET, wrapped in BACON and probably the best we'd ever eaten.
Mr. Sweet is also our SALAD MAKER
and he stayed busy for quite awhile, making the BEST green salad.
*shhhhh...don't tell him I said so but, he cut the tomatoes and put them in a separate dish, to add to the salad just before serving..and he forgot them.
O, but the all green salad was delicious anyway, with fresh squeezed lemon juice. :))
We had ALL the trimmings,......
carrots and RANCH
that great Green salad
mack and cheese
and 3 of the best PIES from CRACKER BARREL and I forgot to take photos of those beauties....
I did get a photo of the MAKER of those pies....♥
Yes sir ree bob....
my grandlove, BROOKS, is the pie and salad maker at our Cracker Barrel here...
....and he is JUST AS SWEET as he is CUTE....and I love him.
...two grands and a memaw
BLESSING BY THE BUNCH.
I do so love all these people....with all my heart.

I hope YOUR day was a great one....

still suffering from the damage by SANDY.
