Every year, I am gifted a large frozen turkey for a Xmas gift from one of my vendors. It is always delivered the week of Xmas. However, since it always arrives so ‘late’ (in regards to planning the Xmas meal, on the rare years I host it), and I can’t ever assume I will be getting it, it never gets cooked at Xmas. Usually, I do it in March after the NFL playoff ‘season’ is over. I wasn’t feeling well enough at that time this year to be bothered.
But by early this month, I was sick of it still in my freezer. So we decided to cook it this past Saturday. I invited the whole family; my mom came, as did my younger daughter, her hubby and my two youngest grandkids. We had a ball. It was all delicious, but I understand why it’s easier to cook in November or December when the weather is cooler. LOL
Then yesterday, I moved winter clothes (such as they are in Southern CA, LOL) to my 3rd bedroom closet, washed my car, did the laundry, did the gardening. On a 90 degree day. After cooking a turkey dinner with all the trimmings the day before. I was pooped. I spent the whole afternoon on the couch watching TV.
So a very full, but fun weekend. Now I have a week’s worth of delicious food, and another (smaller) container of extra turkey we will be freezing for a month or two from now. It’s all good!
Hope you had a great weekend too!
