Thanksgiving Day

(Trying out a new design for the blog.  Let me know what you think.  Haven't settled on this one yet so I am interested in your feedback.)

Today was an unusual Thanksgiving day for us.  Unusual in that we ate a traditional Thanksgiving meal that Kelly Jo prepared and ate it as a family with only the three of us.  When we are in Ohio for Thanksgiving we are feasting with the Boggs Family one day and the Morgan Family another day.  Most years we are on the road some where and we usually eat at Cracker Barrel. They serve a great meal with turkey and all the trimmings and we have enjoyed it at various Cracker Barrels around the country.

But Kelly Jo was in Kroger the other day and ran smack dab into a deal on a turkey she just couldn't pass up.  She paid less than $5 for a 16 lb. bird and before you know it we were planning a big fiesta!  Here he is just as he went into the oven....

And Here he is a few hours later... He is ready to fall off the bone and jump into my mouth!

Here is Odie ready to jump in!

And here is the most moist turkey that has ever been prepared in the history of the civilized world! 

As I told you we eat most Thanksgivings in a Cracker Barrel so it has been quite a while since Kelly Jo has cooked a turkey.  She was more than a little nervous about how this one would turn out.  But I told her today that even though I vaguely remember saying something like this the last time, this is the absolute best turkey she has ever cooked!  It was awesome!

You might have noticed from the pictures above that we did not cook in the BoggsMobile.  It would be rather difficult to cook a big turkey in our Microwave/Convection oven so the folks here at Gainesville House of Prayer were kind enough to lend us their facilities for the day.  It worked out very nicely and we are thankful for their hospitality.

Now we are full, thankful and satisfied!  Thank you Lord for your blessings on me!
God bless you all!
