Happy Thanksgiving

November 26th, 2005 / Filed Under: personal / 2 Comments / Tags: , , , ,


I’ve now cooked my first roast turkey dinner. It took all day to do and there were a few small worries along the way but it all came out well in the end. It seems the same as Christmas Day lunch to me so I enjoyed it – roast turkey, roast potatoes, yorkshire puddings, stuffing, bread sauce… I can have another go at it in just over a month. All the stores are now well into their ‘holiday season’, one thing you don’t see much of though is ‘Happy Christmas’, its all ‘Happy Holidays’. How very PC.

    Ahh Neil, you are so domesicated! Nice looking turkey too mate. Did the amaericans like your yorkshires and was it confusing for them to understand the whole pudding in a main course thing?? ;)

    Good job mate, you can be proud of that bird! It’ll be a lot easier at Christmas, now you’ve got more of an idea of how the oven handles.

What's Your Take?
