Gobble Gobble

Well, it is Thanksgiving here in the United States. A day we gather with family, count our blessings, and eat way too much.
I found this old photo when I was unpacking. It was displayed at our house this time of year, in a Fall looking frame. I thought it had a Norman Rockwell feeling about it. Although now that I look closer, it must have been the Christmas turkey he was craving, since I notice the red candle and Holley.

Tom never helps much with the cooking. I remember one Thanksgiving asking him to baste the turkey. He pulled it out of the oven, and did a nice job with the baster. What I didn't notice is that he left the mitt, that he took off of his the oven with the turkey . It finally went up in flames, setting off the fire alarm. The turkey was salvaged...even though it tasted a bit "smoked".
If you celebrate this holiday, I hope that you are surrounded by loved ones, doesn't matter if they are family or friends. ....and remember to count the mitts before you close the oven door! Janey


  1. MY DH is deliberately inept in the kitchen. This Thanksgiving I vowed that he would help. Peeling the potatoes will be a snap for him and I provided a recipe for wonderful cranberry sauce. How did he handle the load. Well, a can of cranberry sauce is sitting on the cupboard, waiting to be opened. Gotta love 'em!!

  2. thanks for the sweet photo and the cute story! enjoy your day!

  3. Very nice photo! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. What a story, poor Tom, almost set the house on fire. Did he ever tried something else in the kitchen?
