We have to at least have one post on Thanksgiving. We had Thanksgiving at home like we always do. It was Phil, myself, my daughter-in-law, the grandbaby and my daughter. Here is the perfect 20 lb turkey.
We also had: stuffing, giblet gravy, mashed potatoes, mashed turnips, baked sweet potatoes, mashed butternut squash, rolls, cranberry sauce...

banana bread and zucchini bread...

homemade apple pie(I did not get real fancy, it was after work and I was tired) made from my own canned apple pie filling. . .

pumpkin pie made from my own canned pumpkin (those were the hardest pie pumpkins I have ever seen--NEVER again!)
It was all really good but the best thing of all is that I don't have to cook ANYTHING today.


  1. A 30 lb turkey!!! You won't be cooking for a week. Or you will be trolling the net for what to make from left over turkey. Happy belated Thanksgiving.

  2. LOl, it says 20 lbs. I'll make soup and casseroles from what is left. If there is really too much I will can some for later but I doubt there will be that much.

  3. Oh, ONLY 20 lb...still huge. I am imagining myself with 20 lbs off...see, it is huge!

  4. It was a nice large turkey. These last few years I have had to really look for a turkey that big (I can remember when everyone got one that was 20-25 lbs).Now most of the turkeys are just 10-15 lbs.
