Happy Thanksgiving

Gearing up for Thanksgiving- we have decided since the weather is supposed to be beautiful tomorrow (said while looking at the downpour outside) that we are going to purchase a turkey fryer and try making a deep fried turkey tomorrow.  I have a 12 lb turkey completely defrosted (yes I have seen the videos of the whole thing engulfed in flames) and am hopeful that we can pull it off. 
 What we hope does NOT happen!

Cheergirlie has to go back tomorrow night because JMU made the playoff and they are flying the team & cheerleaders to Eastern Kentucky Fri. morning for the game on Sat. She is super excited to be able to go and we will hopefully be able to watch & catch a glimpse of her on one of the ESPN stations!

Have a SAFE and wonderful Thanksgiving!!!


  1. YAY for JMU! It was optional for the band, so Squirrel chose to stay home with us - BONUS! But we will be watching for CG.

    I would never first attempt a fried turkey on Thanksgiving. I would have to have a trial run first. I wish you juicy, succulent turkey with little flame. :P heehee

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  2. I'm intrigued by the idea of deep fried turkey. I usually roast mine on the BBQ when we have it at Christmas. Good luck with yours
