With all of our national problems we still have plenty to be thankful for. Wishing everyone a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.

I was halving the recipe for stuffing, but forgot to halve the salt -- oops.

Happy Thanksgiving from Canada!

The only day in the year where you can tell someone to "get stuffed" and they smile

May we give thanks for all blessings in our lives.

Mr B has never cooked a turkey, so I gave him a quick lesson in how to prepare and cook the bird. Nice to do that together.

All I ate today was half an apple, so my stomach is growling right now.

Mr Turkey (11 lb) is almost done. I kept it pretty simple - storebought stuffing cubes with poultry seasoning, celery and homemade chicken broth added, with 1/3 apple (chopped small) in my stuffing, cranberry sauce (from a can ), yams, mashed potatoes, and gravy. I did not overboard on amounts.

Not to spoil an otherwise enjoyable day, I half heard a poll quoted on
TV yeserday that went something like this: 46% of americans like turkey, but 90% of americans think the legislators in DC are turkeys. Seems like one of the more legitimate polls to me

Glad Mr. B helped "cook your turkey", though I've never heard it called that before...
