Thanksgiving Day 2016
Bienvenido, loyal follower. Please come along as Bruce and Mary celebrate Thanksgiving 2016, provecho!
Things have changed prompting our first real Thanksgiving Day celebration in many years. For one thing, we are recently retired and not working Thanksgiving Day for the first time since 2008. And,Â son Joe and wife Meryah have been transferred to the Houston areaÂ and with Southwest Airlines recently opening flights toÂ Puerto Vallarta it is now super cheap to fly into Houston. So, armed with an invite, we did so. It is Thanksgiving day, this day, and preparations have begun.
But of course, being native Minnesotans, we take a break for the Vikings/Detroit game. Not a happy ending, at least for a Vikings fan, so…
Food prep continues. Among other things, Joe is in charge of the dressing and…
Whipping potatoes. BecauseÂ working food shows has beenÂ part of his job, the General (General Mills) supplied him with a commercial blender that makes short work of these spuds.
Mary and Meryah are teaming up on the turkey. It’s time for a little more basting.
Mary is in charge of the rolls.
Mary is really enjoying the food prep for our first Thanksgiving feast in years.
We’re getting close, it’s oven time for the beans and stuffing.
Time for me to the do the only job I got, carving the turkey which is super easy as it is so moist and tender the meat just falls away.
A belated happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours, Cheers!
Next stop, the stars, as Joe, mom and dad do NASA.
Thanks for visiting gentle reader. Hasta proximo Domingo!
