Okay folks...Here's a pictorial recap from our Thanksgiving festivities yesterday at Jackie and Vince's house. Lots and lots and lots of prep work and much thanks to Jackie, Vince, Renie and Kelly for pulling it all together!
I took a few hours to log on and watch the Xaverian vs. St John's Prep annual football game. The Hawks won 21-15 and captured the Catholic Conference Championship before heading off to the MIAA playoffs. You'll note the pumpkin spiced coffee from DD in my hand to start the day off right too!
Back to the prep work...which there was lots of since there must have been 15 people at dinner! [by the way, I peeled carrots and sliced green beans for like 3 hours on Wednesday...just incase you don't see me doing any work here in the photos]
Soon enough it was time to sink the bird into the boiling hot peanut oil! Note the slight flare-up we had on the grass. No worries though...it was tamped out quickly.
An hour and 10 minutes later...and our bird was cooked!
And then it was time to finally sit down and enjoy...
So there you have it...our Thanksgiving day in a nutshell. As always...comments appreciated in the "comments" section! Hope you all had a great day too.
