The Turkey and the Tortoise

Our Norman Rockwell moment

But before that could happen, a lot of this had to happen. And when I say a lot, I mean A LOT!

Here's my foolproof trick for freeing up oven space. Oh yeah, a man and his grill. Works like a charm!

Let's take a closer look at that bird. Mmmmm...nothing beats a mesquite smoked barbecued turkey. And the drippings (because yes, we catch them in a little pan, down there with the coals) are to die for. The gravy is a-maz-ing.

Carving the bird is the hated task of the day.

But I did my part this year. I supplied the instructions. Lots of pictures. Minimal wordage.
Good Thing.

Mama gets a little love from the college kiddos. . . .
It was a day of family surfing
sisters singing

and little brothers smiling.
And it was a lovely day to lie in the grass!

Awesome pictures! The turkey looks wonderful and so does the green grass in the background. You have a lovely family! Our celebration will be tomorrow. If I can clear out the dust.
