During my normal shopping trek on Wednesday, I spied an organic fresh turkey – at a great price. I thought “Why not do up a mini-Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday?” I picked it up, grabbed a few more fixin’s, and home I went. We called Victor’s mom to come over Saturday, and I proceeded to make a feast…Turkey, gravy, dressing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, green beans… Oy! The food for three people! Oh – and I made a pear clafouti for dessert.

We sent mom home laden with food for a week, the carcass went into the pot for soup, everything else nicely tupperware’d and into the ‘fridge.

I definitely can’t eat like this often, but it’s fun more than just once a year!
