Turkeys and the Thanksgiving Weather Report

There were at least ten or twelve of them...plenty to go around...
...not one Tom in the bunch.

As we were heading out to church while visiting Adam a couple of weeks ago,
it seems we interrupted quite an impressive parade going on in the front yard.

Too bad turkey season ended in October :(
Have you ever eaten wild turkey?
No dry white meat on this's moist and delicious!
And now for the weather....


Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190°. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder.

During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Please pass the gravy.

A weight watch and indigestion warning have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.

Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone. (author unknown)

I thought this was cute :)

Happy Thanksgiving, friends!
