Thanksgiving Feast

Wow Thanksgiving is over – Had a wonderful day.  Everyone was a massive help.  Daughter-in-law Melissa help with the shopping. Hubby got up and put the turkeys in – we had two 13 pounders instead of one 25 pounder – meat is less dry and bird moving is easier.  I came in next; made the ruttabaga,  sweet potatoes, and right before serving the gravy.  Daughter Rachel made the mashed potatoes, green beans, corn stuffing and brownies.  Mother-in-law made the pumpkin pies. Grand daughter Caitlin worked on the cranberry sauce,  plates and silverware.  Son Joshua is away this year and couldn’t get leave to come home.  We also sent a plate to our friend and my father. 

After feasting we made up the left overs into sandwich makings and today a warm pot of turkey stew.  The rest is frozen for future quick meals.
