Turkey Butt

I have updates on the garden but those will have to wait because there is still quite a bit to do today and this weekend now that the holiday season is in full swing.

Wanted to stop by and express my gratitude for the many blessings in my life that may be hard to fully appreciate during these rough around the edges era. I'm working very hard to take a breath and remember/ find the silver lining in everything.

Speaking of Thanksgiving, we had carefully calculated how long it would take to cook a the 22-lb. turkey we snatched up and figured that we needed to have it stuffed and in the oven by 6:30 in order to have it ready by 3pm. FMIL decided to have it a little early because most of her boys had double/tripled booked themselves for the occassion at the last moment.

Well, this sucker not only overflowed the tray with it's greasy juices, but it was actually completely finished by 11:45am. Oh, good gravy. Pun seasonally intended. Needless to say, there was a bit of panic on how to not overcook and/or dry out. Never thought that we'd run into this issue. Ever. XD

Our next dilemma was trying to figure out how to bide our time with the rest of the fix-in's. Oye, lol. It was the least of our problems but we were still flabbergasted nonetheless.

I hope you and all of your loved ones have a wonderful, safe, and fulfilling long holiday weekend. I'll see you soon! <3
