Here is the Rooster doing a little Turkey carving. He is so big, it makes the Turkey look small but it was plenty for all plus leftovers for supper and of course turkey and gravy over biscuits for another day.
Hear are the scrumptious home made rolls that were baked by the Hen. When these were baking and then pulled fresh from the hot oven, the smell filled the house! I can't help but think back to the pioneer days and how that same great smell excited many people in anticipation of the fresh baked rolls.
Isn't this a gorgeous dish? It tasted as good as it looked. Fresh asparagus, garlic cloves and fresh mushrooms. Um good. There wasn't very much of this dish left over.
This is a close up of the food just before we said the Thanksgiving grace.
The ugly duckling was entertained with a half lemon peal. He wasn't sure he liked it, He did entertain the Chicks and the rest of us by playing with it and a few strange looks and lick tests!
After the meal, I caught the Rooster and Hen looking through the Black Friday ad's. The news paper was thick full with door buster sales. You can notice that each are checking out adds of interest to them. The football game was also on TV so the rooster had to keep his eye on both. He loves football and since he played football while in college knows a lot about the sport. I must admit I took my share of time going through the sale ad's too. The Hen and I had a fun 4 hours shopping early Friday morning. We left the house about 5:30 AM and it was only about 12 degrees out. It's not too often that we get to go shopping together. It was a special time for us and we did find some great buys too.
Here is the baby Chick #4, He also is very interested in the ad's, this would be the TOY section! Isn't he adorable when he thinks so hard?
These are the two pies, pumpkin and apple, that my daughter (the Hen) and I baked on Wednesday. It was a lot of fun and they not only looked nummy but tasted nummy as a mid afternoon treat. (because we had to let the Turkey meal settle a bit)
