Thanksgiving 2011 Round Up

Thanksgiving this year was a whirlwind. With only two days off work and 360 miles to drive round-trip, there was very little sleep to be had. But there was plenty of food! And since I'm still working on not enough sleep, I'm going to let my pictures (and video!) speak for themselves.

Yeah, we fry our turkey. In the driveway.

With cocktails

(I recorded a video of the turkey being lowered into the fryer but it's not uploading! Hopefully I'll get it up and running soon. Any tips?)

Oh, and we roast a turkey too. And bathe it in butter.

The result of the men's copious drinking hard work. It sort of looks like they're having a nice chat over a glass of chardonnay.

Yes, that's three turkeys. I think the final calculation was 47 pounds of meat. For 12 people. It was  just a tad excessive. But why stop at one turkey when you have enough oil for two?

Dan was elected to carve since he was the most sober of the menfolk and all the ladies were busy with the rest of the meal.

Besides, he's going to be a surgeon; he has to hone his craft somehow.

Recipes coming soon!
