Turkey Time!

I hope you all had a good Thanksgiving. I certainly did! I got turkey and mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes!

Here I am in my holiday jacket, getting ready to go to Gammy's. You like those snowmen??

Check out this feast! I always stand under Michael Rayl's feet while he carves the turkey. You'd probably be surprised by the amount that "accidentally" falls to the ground!

I love me some Thanksgiving dinner!

Here are the pies Woman baked.

Lemon Meringue pie from scratch. Do you know that egg yolks are what give the pie its color? That fact grossed Ian out. He hates eggs.

Pecan pie from scratch. Woman was pretty happy with this recipe. It set up nicely, but she said it was a tad too sweet. I'm not sure pecan pie can actually be too sweet though. It's corn syrup and brown sugar. How can that be not sweet??

I hear the pies were very good. I did not get any taste though. Woman said sweet potatoes were my dessert. Oh well...

The People were at World Market the night before Thanksgiving, and the checkout clerk gave them these chocolate turkeys for free.

He said they couldn't sell them after Thanksgiving, so he was giving them away! The People used them to decorate the place settings for the special Thanksgiving meal. Pretty cool stuff I bet, you know, if you are a human!

    Pecan pie is not difficult to make, but Woman has had trouble with the filling being too runny. It might have just been because we lived in Mobile and the humidity kept the filling too wet. Her filling this year was good she said.

    Free chocolate Turkeys?! WOW.

    You do look very handsome and dashing in your winter coat. There was a lemon meringue pie at our THanksgiving, but I didnt get a piece of it. Very very sad.

    those pies look great. I made a sweet potato pie from scratch for our Thanksgiving. It was the first time I had tried the recipe, which is a big no-no for me, but it turned out delicious!!

    Norman, you look very handsome in your winter attire.

    I didn't know eggs make the merigne (wow, did I just butcher that word) yellow. I learned something new today. That pecan pie looks delicious. I love pecan pie.

    Actually, egg yolks make the filling yellow, not the meringue. The meringue is white from the egg whites and sugar.

    Did you wear your cute jacket all day? Guido gets so hot in any clothing. He never ends up wearing anything more than 1/2 an hour!

    All of the food looks delicious! I cannot imagine Woman eating any of it! I guess if you eat one plate like you are supposed to it isn't that bad .... I had two plate fulls though!

    Norman, you look so handsome in your holiday jacket! Tell your woman that those are some scruptious looking pies. Also, what a score on some free stuff at World Market.

    Turkey butter sounds really cool. I bet they don't sell them after THanksgiving. Maybe you can score a deal on those Punchy!

    I only wear my jacket to and from my destination. I get hot also!!

    Normie it is truly amazing how much stuff hits the floor on Thanksgiving. There were many drops and spills, all quickly 'mopped' up by Frank and Maya B. They are so thorough.

    I loved making pies! I haven't really made a from scratch pie in a long time. The meringue looked perfect. I've never made on but I hear they can be tricky.

    Good job Normans woman!
