This is Miss Abigail, fresh from her bath. She has provided the entertainment all day. We all are so amazed at how much she has changed this month. She walks, and talks, and chases the M&M's around the house. She's no longer a baby, definitely a toddler now.
We did a turkey bakeoff this year, the guys smoked theirs in the backyard, we baked Pioneer Woman's turkey, but with a twist. We flipped the turkey upside down and baked it breast side down.
And the verdict? We all liked the flavor of the smoked best, but we definitely liked the juiciness of the breast down bird. That's a great technique, we'll do it again for sure. We brined both turkeys, but Pioneer Woman's just didn't have enough flavor.
We also made her pecan pie instead of Dear Abby's. But traditions die hard around here, and even though it was good, Dear Abby is still the fave. However, the Lawry's Banana Coconut Cream Pie with Coconut Crust was a huge hit. It was absolutely awesome! I had forgotten what a great recipe this is, but we'll definitely make it again.
Hubby is in bed already, the rest of the family is watching Uncle Buck and laughing like they've never seen it before. Yours truly is going to shut this machine down and waddle off to bed, too.
Happy Turkey Day everyone, and happy shopping tomorrow if you're brave enough to face the crowds. I'm going to pass on it, I never shop the day after Thanksgiving.
