Taking a Break

The pies are made, and the turkey is stuffed and in the oven. I'm a little behind my timeline. Right now I'm looking at the turkey coming out of the oven around 3:30 or so. I should never have put the turkey in the freezer when I got it. It was only partially thawed this morning. So I had to do the cold water thaw. All things considered, it only went in the oven 45 minutes later than I hoped, so that's not too bad. Now I have a couple hours before I get the potatoes peeled and cooking for mashed potatoes, the green bean casserole made, and the sweet potato pie. I have holiday classics playing on the TV and I'm going to interact until such time as I need to get back to the dinner. I thought we were going to have sun today, but clouds are threatening. What they are threatening with is a good question. I keep seeing snowflakes on the forecast, but it just isn't cold enough for it. Even though Thanksgiving was a week ago, it really feels like Thanksgiving today. The holiday classics make the day come alive. My boys and friends will be here in 4 hours. It's going to be a wonderful day. I'll take pictures. I hope you are all having a great day. Thanks for reading.

Well, I deduce that you are a good cook. I, however, am not very skilled in the kitchen. I am able to make more than anything else of the great pasta. As for the weather meteorological, here in Genova, it is not at all cold.

Thank you. I think I'm a good cook and everyone told me how good it all was. We had some rain last night, and more clouds this morning.

@just4him Well, my mother knows how to cook. Especially on Sundays, she gives her best! Please listen this question in italian with all my respect: "A te, odorano i piedi?" Regards Alessandro

@alberello75 The only word that I might understand is odorano - odor or aroma? So maybe your mother's cooking smells delicious. ?

It was great. It was yesterday and everything is neatly tucked away in the fridge and now it's leftover time.

Yes it did go well. It was just my boys and my older son's girlfriend and her son, not pictured. It was perfect though. I also posted the pictures on FB.

@just4him we are hosting, but not for a few months.I used to do a Saint Patty's Day party with friends each year (some drinking, but not tons, more about games and hanging with friends). decided since I am back, time to start it up again.
