This years turkey was as good as the last one. Dry brining is the only way to go. It makes for a nice brown moist turkey---hot or cold. Here it is resting before Mr.T carved it.
Thursday Cam did a great job setting the table. We used the knife holders ,individual salt and peppers, the pumpkin butter spreaders and of course cloth napkins. He really likes a special table. We decided place mats were ok instead of a table cloth. Am I getting lazy or what?
Not quite as special on Friday but nice. Both days were buffet style,less serving dishes.We had the works. Mashed potatos and gravy, dressing, sweet potatoes,corn, relish and rolls. 3 salads,fruit,cranberry,broccoli slaw.
Pie for dessert.The cherry ran over as usual but it still tasted good.We also had pumpkin from no. 2 daughter.
It is so nice to have the island for serving.. Even after 5 years I still love my remodeled kitchen.It is so handy.

I always try to get pictures of the grands just before they go home.
Got Sydney but not Cam. Our beautiful Sydney is taller than me now.
Got Cam earlier in the day doing what they all do now.

I love it when the grands come to visit. Cam will be here during Christmas vacation.I wish all 6 could be here but they are growing up and have jobs or live too far away. I am glad for phones and the internet to keep in touch.

We had news from the oldest grand daughter. She is engaged. Does not seem possible. God bless you both.

I hope everyone had a great turkey day. Time to start decorating for Christmas it will be here all too soon.j

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I enjoyed perusing yours! I know how lucky I am to have the grandchildren close by - I see them several times a week, and they know no other routine - Grammy's house to raid the frig, cupboards, and freezer!!! Take care, Sally
