We had one of the most blessed, fun and full Thanksgiving. We used our roaster oven for the first time making something like a turkey. I had used it once before to make baked potatoes, but I’ve never used it to make any sort of meat. I had heard that it cooked things quicker, but everything I read said a 20lb not stuffed turkey would take 4-5 hours. It took only 3 1/2 hours and was done about 2 hours before our guests were suppose to start showing up. 🙁 I wasn’t worried about our Thanksgiving until that happen. I was worried that the turkey would be cold, dry or both. But thankfully it turned out great. It was one of the most moist turkey’s I’ve ever made. We are already excited to use it more and more. I think I’ve found my new way to make my meats. 🙂
The fellowship was the best. The two families we had invited over had never met each other before, but they got along splendidly. We ate and sat around and talked for hours. It was so nice, we talked about the Lord, our lives and many other things. I was so blessed by all of them and the food that they bought was the best. We have been eating leftovers today, and I’m still savoring every bite.
Here are some pictures from our day.
These are the desserts we made the day before Thanksgiving.
It was shockingly warm for Thanksgiving. I took this picture the day before, but it was the same temp on Thanksgiving too. It was so nice.
Keeping the food warm.
Lots and lots of food.
And more food.
