Thanksgiving 2009

Thanksgiving was enjoyable this year. We missed our son Patrick but our other two sons were here along with my mom and dad. I cooked the meal and my mom brought her famous french meat and potato stuffing, hors d’oeuvres and a pumpkin and apple pie. I for some reason took no food pictures except for the pies. I guess when you are hosting you are too busy to take many pictures. The meal went smooth without a hitch and some of the things I did this year I plan on repeating next year. This was my first year of wrapping my butterball turkey with bacon. I saw it on TV a week before and new I wanted to try it. I ended up with a very moist and yummy turkey. I also took stove top stuffing and doctored it up with sauteed chopped onions and celery. It was also moist and delicious. I made home made mashed potatoes and some very sweet Birds Eye corn that I popped in the microwave. I had also prepared my famous broccoli casserole the night before. I have to make this dish at every holiday and most picnics due to requests. I even made an extra casserole for my son Sean to take back to Massachusetts for him and his brother who was not here.

I took this picture with my timer.. It was the best I could do and we were hungry..
