We went to nky to be with Derek's family and I made my first Thanksgiving dinner! Luckily I had been to Columbus a couple weeks prior and my mom and I made a practice turkey, and my mother and sister in laws were super helpful the day of, but dinner was a success and I was able to breathe a sigh of relief. I may or may not have had dreams about things going horribly wrong and dinner being ruined, or the turkey still breathing while I was cooking it.
The only potentially bad thing was that the turkey innards were not contained to a bag but instead were just sitting there inside the bird and needed to be taken out. I got hot and kind of nauseous when I saw them, but Linda came the rescue and took them out for me. I think I would have been able to do it, I just might have needed to go outside and get some air and work myself up to it. Maybe next year :)
Anyways, here is the finished product, my first turkey.
We also celebrated out nephew Connor's birthday over the weekend. We got him a lumberjack shirt that matched Derek's and a toy chainsaw so he could be a little mini lumberjack.
|Oliver wanted to get in on the toy chainsaw action. He even was a fan of the safety goggles!|
