Thanksgiving Dinner

We eat Thanksgiving Dinner at 11:30am - it's something that Scott's family always did growing up, something we adopted in ours. Growing up in Massachusetts, we always had a High School football game to attend in the morning, so Thanksgiving Dinner was in the afternoon.

I like the 11:30am meal - we don't eat a large breakfast, are hungry for the Thanksgiving Feast. Then leftovers all afternoon.
The bonus this year - the kids didn't even wake until 11:00, so they got up and were hungry for turkey.

Popped and Ready to Eat Turkey Thanksgiving
I have a love/hate relationship with these pop up thingies - for many years, they never worked for me - dry turkey resulted. So I bought an instant read thermometer, and the things start popping - always about 20 minutes before I think they are supposed to pop. Once the turkey is done, it never fails - the kitchen erupts into chaos, the carefully planned timing out the window, the once clean sink fills with bowls, pot and pans.

But the food gets to the table
Carved Up

The cats circle the table, knowing they're going to get some special food.

But not before we scoop them up for family pictures.

The Family

Time to eat leftovers - Again, I wish everyone Happy Thanksgiving!

Nice photo . The family looks worried about the one cat maybe going for a leap. Lovely
