Thanksgiving 2009

This year we spent Thanksgiving with our next door neighbors, the Woodruff’s.  I was so glad to have friends to spend it with; I was also a bit nervous as this was the first year that I was in charge of all the major elements of the meal.

There was a small mishap when I discovered (about an hour before it was time for the turkey to go into the oven) that the whole bottom of the turkey was still frozen solid!  I pulled the thing out of the freezer on Saturday – it should have been fine.  The top was defrosted, but the bottom failed to.  A soak in lukewarm water for 45 minutes did the trick, and I got the turkey into the oven on time.  It turned out beautifully.

Here’s a picture of the spread, or at least most of it.  That was a whole lot of food for 4 adults and 4 small kids!

I did most of the cooking but my neighbor, Angie, hosted.  Here’s a picture of the kids’ table she set up.  They liked it, and they especially liked the chocolate pie they were eating here.
