This year we hosted Thanksgiving lunch for the first time ever.
To make the day more exciting our power went out at approximately 10 am and the guests were set to arrive at 12 noon. We called everyone and postponed lunch until 1 o'clock to give the power company enough time to correct the situation and they came through. We had power by 11:30ish and the festive mood returned.
Below you can witness the spread before we sat down to eat just enough so that we wouldn't walk away hungry.
Here's my Mom enjoying a lovely beverage...
The next day didn't start out so leisurely as the wife and I got up at the crack of the crack of dawn as you can see in the official time picture below. That's correct, the clock said 1:47 on the way to the 2 hour waiting line.
I'll just say that the lines were long, the weather was uncooperative, the frostbite nearly turned me into a quitter but the deals that we came home with warmed the heart.
|We returned home with time enough to crawl back into bed for 2 more hours before the rest of the house woke up and started the day. Thank you all for reading. May your toes never be frostbitten and may your leftover turkey be gone within a week.|
