thanksgiving photos

As always we had a full house and lots of food.

I patched this picture together to get everyone in.

The finished deep fried turkey

Burk lowers the Creole butter injected turkey into the hot oil.

 In addition to Burk's turkey Dorothy baked one that had soaked in brine over night, plus we had ham, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, hot rolls, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, and green beans wrapped in bacon, broccoli rice casserole, plus fruit salads, a peanut butter cake and pies (pecan, custard, pumpkin, and strawberry rhubarb.
The counter I made held lots of food, but.......

.....we had an extra table and some dishes were left on the stove top.
After spending the day cooking and looking after the needs of our family Dorothy and Kelly left at 7:00 pm to get an early start on black friday shopping. Dorothy came back home at 8:30am Friday morning with a car full of stuff the purchase of which, she assured me, saved us lots of money.

I don't know how I missed this. that is actually the first deep-fried turkey I've seen, and it does look appealing.

The family too looks lovely. I've been watching these kids grow for 5 or 6 years now, and love seeing the pictures of everybody.
