It's that time of year again

May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Happy Thanksgiving !

I am chopping and dicing as I usually do for our holiday and yes we are frying turkeys. We usually fry several turkeys not because our family is so big but because I like to feed our police. During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday a lot of restaurants are closed and it's difficult for the officers to get food. A group of volunteers take up the cause and we provide a feast for them and the roll call room turns into a buffet of delicious offerings. The turkey and stuffing and ham and the obligatory green bean casserole oh yes and the pumpkin pies ..... each year the feast gets better and better. And the officers love it, well let's just say a good time is had by all.
