we had a very low-key turkey day. a few friends and a deep fried bird.
before you start moaning about tradition, take a gander:
it was, dare i say? they best damn turkey ever.
i'm a traditionalist. i've roasted my turkey in the oven every thanksgiving for probably the last 15 years. i've balked at frying my turkey in hot oil for probably the last 5. but there is something to this deep frying. it presented the most delectable meat, my mouth is watering as i sit here trying to find the right adjectives. it was moist, perfectly seasoned, crispy outside, tender and juicy inside. YUM! but i will say, getting used to the house smelling like a chinese food restaurant on thanksgiving may take some getting used to.
come and get it!
and no holiday would be complete without gram's banana cream pies.
hope your day was filled with all the traditions you love best.
