Today is 'our turkey day' for my wife and I. My dear wife works in the kitchen at the local Senior Center and they had their Thanksgiving dinner over a week ago. Granted, I came and ate Thanksgiving dinner early also. I love turkey.
For Thanksgiving I made the 2½ hour drive for my wife to be able to visit her 'American Mom' and we spent 3 hours eating there then, I drive the 2½ hours back home (that's a bit unnerving since it was already dark as we got to the mountains and there are deer everywhere. Trying to spot them in total pitch black darkness before ending up hitting one and seriously damaging your vehicle isn't easy).
However, we did arrive home safe at around 7:30 PM.
So, today is OUR turkey day and our turkey is in the oven cooking as I write this. Just doesn't seem right not to have turkey in the fridge as left overs to snack on for the next week
Next year though I think I'll be roasting a leg of lamb or two and I'll do turkey for Christmas - that is provided we don't eat all the lamb we will slaughter for ourselves before Thanksgiving. The one we are growing for us should produce around 80 lbs. of lamb meat.
For Easter, I think we'll be having rabbit stew. These 2 rabbits we were given should be at around 15 lbs. each before Easter. Don't tell your kids or grandkids, but I think we'll be having Easter Bunny for Easter dinner.
I did eat Rudolph just before one Christmas while living in Finland. Don't tell them that either!
