Thanksgiving... yes, this is belated, but better late than never. Two days prior to turkey day, I received a phone call: our hostess' family was sick with the stomach bug. Before I even needed to politely decline the offer she had extended to us several weeks ago, she very graciously informed me (or rather ordered me), "don't come...why put you into that awkward position of wait and see what happens?" Thank you, Joy!
So Plan B went into action. For the first time in our family, we ordered a $40.00 turkey dinner from a local grocery store, added a few homemade touches, and voila! A tasty and stress-free Thanksgiving dinner. It was probably the most delicious, moist turkey that we've tasted thus far. (No offense, Mom!)
We spent the remainder of the day walking off the dinner at a local park,
gathering bits of nature
getting a good workout
and enjoying a slice of pie with homemade whipped cream.
