turkey day


Sandy has been doing so well that I have had nothing to post since October. With only one left to go in December, She was going through one of her last chemo cycles during Thanksgiving week. On Thanksgiving Day, the chemo made Sandy so tired she did not even get dressed so daughter number one had to step up to the plate and do the pinch hitting or cooking, so to speak. Please note the happy look on Sandy's face.

Who knew Breanna was such a good cook? She planned the meal and searched for recipes on the internet. After working at Papa Murphy's Pizza, she went shopping at Pick 'n Save on her own and bought every thing needed including a twelve pound turkey. Wednesday night, she mixed up the dough for egg croisants and left it set to rise. Turkey Day, Breanna was up early at six thirty preparing candied yams with marshmellows, mashed potatoes topped with bread crumbs and cheese, sea foam salad, and a very delicious apple/pecan dressing. The turkey was so tendor, it fell off the bird and on to the serving plate. Breanna had basted the bird with such things as rosemary, garlic, and lemon juice. She has proven to be a better cook than her mom or I so we told her she had to do the Thanksgiving dinner from now on.

From our family to yours, we wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving and a merry Christmas. Me thinks it not to early since the radio stations have been playing Christmas music and the stores have started their holiday advertising already.
