Simon all bundled up and ready to go to Grandma and Grandpa Tam’s place for his first Thanksgiving.
Simon had a little nap while we were all preparing dinner. His red little cheeks are actually from chapped skin rather than pimples. The cold dry weather is pretty harsh on his delicate skin.
Ron’s brined turkey. The meat turned out very tender and juicy.
My parents aged beef roast. The meat was also very tender and juicy.
Cranberry sauce made with fresh cranberries, water, sugar, dried cranberries, and orange slices. The oranges were leftover from Ron’s brine, he only used the rinds so I used to the flesh for the cranberry sauce. A variation of something we saw on Food Network.
Garlic mashed potatoes. Just sauteed some sliced garlic separately then used instant mashed potatoes.
Ready for dinner!
Simon having some turkey. He also had some corn and rice.
Dessert with Mrs. Smith’s apple pie and Zanze’s pumpkin cheesecake.
A lovely first Thanksgiving for Simon!
