We are all thankful today that no one was too sick to enjoy Thanksgiving!
My brother, who apparently loves turkey leftovers, requested two turkeys this year. Ann accommodated that by buying the biggest turkey she could find--a 27 pounder. No, that was not a typo. 27 pounds of turkey. Mom says probably 6 pounds of mashed potatoes. A double helping of green bean casserole. Carrot souffle. Stuffing. And for dessert... pumpkin pie, apple caramel cake, carrot cake (which is actually Chris' birthday cake), pumpkin bread, and kolachis (a cookie that we make most every holiday).
Did I mention that there were only five of us eating. Three of whom were recovering from the flu. After the end of the meal, most of the dishes barely looked touched! Have I also mentioned that I don't really like Thanksgiving leftovers. Did I mention that we found out the neighbors were having 20 people over for Thanksgiving and only had a 13 pound turkey.
27 pounds, I am not joking.
