I keep forgetting that it's Saturday. What with Thanksgiving and all I've been having to remind myself that its not Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful time with family and friends.
I'm happy to report that our Thanksgiving went wonderfully! It's amazing what a little bit of planning and foresight can do to make things run smoothly. Neither of us care all that much for turkey so we usually have something else. No telling what usually, but the way I have it figured it's not so much the "what" you have but the "why" you have Thanksgiving in the first place.
I didn't get any pictures of dinner this year. The rechargeable batteries I've been using in my camera don't seem to be charging as well as they used to. I'll have them charged up and in the camera and try to take a picture and it already needs recharging again. Do rechargeable batteries have an expiration date? Anyway....
It was a pretty warm and sunny day here. Mars fired up the pit. Originally we were just going to smoke a chicken. Then he remembered the brisket I'd picked up on sale awhile back. Nothing says yummy like a smoked brisket! ( Of course that might just be because I'm from Texas) Our menu for the day might be a little off the traditional but we did have sweet potato's, Granny's Recipe Cornbread Dressing, pasta salad, fresh baked rolls and a Pumpkin Cheesecake for dessert. I won't have to cook for a week! LOL
Other than that there's not much new to tell ya. We are still working in the garden when we can. All the irrigation tape has been taken up and properly stored till next spring. We still have to come back with compost and manure once we finish weeding out as much of the Johnson grass as we can so as not to have so much come back in the spring. I've got a feeling this is going to take awhile!
