There were the three of us, Dean, me and our oldest grandson, Kyle, who is living with us for a while. Three or 30, I am still very traditional about the Thanksgiving meal. Here are some pictures with a few things I learned this year.
A convection oven cooks much faster than a regular one. The 3 to 4 hour turkey took 2 1/2. Brunch anyone?
The oven bakes really well, the pie and the dressing were perfect. And a new oven (2014 model) keeps all the heat inside and doesn't heat the kitchen like the 35 year old oven we were using.
The McKay men - grandson Kyle and Grandpa Dean.
We ate early because Kyle had to go to south shore and work a party at the restaurant where he is employed. That left the buffet full of food which Dean and I enjoyed nibbling on all afternoon and into the early evening. It's in fridge now of course for feasting again tomorrow and/or Saturday. Leftovers are part of the tradition too, right?
It has been a lovely, gentle, easy day full of gratitude and giving thanks. Blessings to you all.
