Thanksgiving has come and gone. A little bittersweet in a way. Thanksgiving is the day that many on my side of the family choose to get together but I was not able to make the trip due other obligations. A couple of weeks prior a friend that I work with invited us over for Thanksgiving and we accepted. This was the same person that gave the kids their first pony ride which can be seen here. This lady, I will call Ms. K, opened her home to four families and a couple of straggling teenagers. Char, the kids, and I all had our first experience with fried turkey. Actually, somehow I ended up being the fry daddy. It’s really not hard at all and only took an hour to cook a 13.5lb turkey. It was not greasy or heavy. Ms. K marinaded it so it had a great flavor throughout. The picture is not of ours but it looked about like this when we finished. We all had a great time with the animals. All of Ms. K’s animals are so well socialized. All the kids got pony rides and had the time of their lives. A big thanks to Ms. K!
