The turkey tried to run away before it was too late to become the center of our Thanksgiving dinner. It might have been better to let it go as it is taking forever for it to cook. :) Tom wanted to stuff the turkey and I had no idea how much longer it takes to cook a stuffed turkey, not to mention I had the temperature too low in the oven. Hopefully we'll eat before bedtime!
I planned on having guests for Thanksgiving, but none of the invitees ended up being able to come. Considering how long it's taking to cook the turkey, it's probably a blessing! (Actually, I would have been much more prepared had it not been just Tom and I. I would have investigated the cooking times for a stuffed turkey at least!)
Tom and his family had their Thanksgiving on Sunday before he drove back to Florida. I'm glad he was able to be with them. It just so happened that everyone was going to be in town before Thanksgiving and not on the day - so they had it early. Perfect! Good thing he got turkey then, because he may never get any today haha!
I hope you've had a blessed year.
**Edited to add - we finally ate at 7:30pm. That's not too bad. I was shooting for 4pm.
