Junie's Place: A Good day!

A Good day!

Our day turned out to be a real success and a great family time for us all.( Everyone was here except Marc, my SIL-He's a truck driver and couldn't make it home! :( We missed you, Marc. )
Our turkey was ready about 2:00 and we managed to bring it all together by about 2:30.

In spite of all my misgivings about the banana pudding everyone said it was the best ever!! Yes- I have to say -it sure looked pretty!

Here's that big ole turkey! (19 + pounds) ...You should have heard me grumbling during the stuffing and cooking of this big guy! Once again I said, "I will NEVER cook a turkey this big again!" ....and..."This is the last time I'm doing a big holiday meal like this!" ( I've said this before, of course!) :)
But then I realize it's all worth it when the turkey comes out of the overn looking like this!

~~I forgot to take pics of my Harvest Loaf and my Cranberry Salad~~

We had to serve buffet style, with so much food and so many of us! Here is a pic of some of the family at the serving table.
My daughters and 2 of my Grands-Zach and Alli.

The Grandkids:
Zach-Dan-Brian and Alli.

One of the best parts of the day is the chit-chat after dinner-and lingering with dessert and coffee!
These photos are of the rest of us!

My son, Chris, my daughter Tammy and her son Zach-and Tammy and her husband, Terry, Daughter Tina and her daughter, Alli.-Charles and me.

I'm thankful for my family.

Beautiful bird. Mine was 19 plus lbs too. Loads of leftovers.

Buffet is the only way to so far as I'm concerned.

Hi Ann,

;0 Every year I think," MAYBE this time we will use the good china and set a fancy table!" But in the end it always seems too much a hassel to do that. At any rate, my one table wouldn't hold us all anyway! Doesn't matter. We enjoy the time together and the good food! I ate too much of the high carbs and have had a headache all day today.

I have one big pk of left over turkey I'm saving for my son in law. He's a truck driver and couldn't get home!
