Turkey Tales

As luck would have it, the power went off
just minutes after I removed two apple crisps from the oven.

The power was still off when went to the outlaws, so we had dinner
by the light of kerosene lanterns that had been in the family for years.

Then a few hours later we went to Momo and Pop's house.
JB had offered to deep fry their turkey.

Any man who has this sign in his kitchen is game to deep fry anything.

There was a search for the proper seasoning...

Then, in the pot it went.

While it cooked, Pop fiddled with his tractor.

Momo got to put her feet up and catch up with relatives on the phone.

And Mr. Blue positioned himself in the kitchen,
so he'd be sure to share in the Thanksgiving feast.

Sounds like a good day. How did the turkey turn out?

As we drove up 460 late last night, I waved in your general direction.

Never had a deep fried turkey yet. Haven't brined one, either. When am I going to get with it?

Was it good?

Merry Belated Turkey Holiday. Come see my gobbler.
