Practice Thanksgiving

This year I decided to finally tackle the big Thanksgiving turkey dinner. Instead of choosing to ruin a perfectly good Thanksgiving day however, I decided to practice it the week before on some great friends. It's a good idea to pick people who won't end the friendship over possible food poisoning. Which thankfully, we did. ;)

I made the turkey, stuffing, rolls, and cranberry sauce while other friends brought the yams and pumpkin pie. Great idea to spread out the love of food when you only have 1 oven to work. The timing can get a little crazy towards the end. I learned a lot this year, roasted my first turkey, set my first Thanksgiving table, hosted great friends. There are definitely things I will change for the next time I try the whole dinner - lots more stuffing, a bigger turkey, and I probably won't use an oven bag to cook the turkey but try something new instead. But I wouldn't change the setting - only hoping to add more friends and family next year!

And, as far as I know, no one got food poisoning. ;)

Happy Halloween from Woody!

Silly boy on Halloween. I think he had more fun handing out candy to other kids than getting his own bag-ful. I can't believe he is almost 3 years old!!
