In which Thanksgiving is great, and opting outside is pretty great too
Ours was a Thanksgiving Dinner that couldn't be beat:
Turkey from Mel, roasted vegetables from our gardens,
stuffing from Alison, pies from my mom.
Ten people, lots of talking and laughing, lots of food =
a great holiday.
|The turkey was so big that it had to be cut in half with a Sawzall.|
Santa Jim roasted half with bacon in the oven; Monica smoked the
other half in the smoker with applewood.
The dogs aren't allowed to have turkey, stuffing, or pie, but they do get special treats for the holiday:
Then on Black Friday, while most of America stood in line to buy wafflewashers at Tarmart, or trolled for parking at the maul, Fiddle and I Opted Outside.
|Fluffy, but not too fat for November!|
We took Flower
|I hang with you, okay? My rider has gone off into the bushes again!|
|Lookee what I found!|
outside with us.
|moiling, moiling, moiling. The bright pink Dragonwalker Duster is great for keeping |
track of a mushroom hunter in the woods!
It was not a strenuous ride.
But, it wasn't raining, and it wasn't freezing, and the trails weren't crowded.
we found ingredients for the Thanksgiving Leftovers Party Feast on Sunday.
I hope your Thanksgiving table was laden and surrounded by friends. If you're in the Swamp this weekend, why not bring some food to the annual Re-Gobble party at Fish Creek?
We'll see you there!
