2 days before Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone... just thought we would share some pictures of the decorations we put up. Jody (with her big hair), Kevin and Stormy. Deogi was unavailable for the picture due to a scheduling conflict.

We have our wreath up..

We had more lights outside, but some of them broke, so the middle section looks a little sad.

We have our stockings hung by the chimney with care.

And Kevin has his tree up too...

Fried Turkey for Turkey Day

Last Saturday we had Thanksgiving at our house and we fried the turkey. Doug did all the work and it came out really good. In fact this is probably my favorite way of having turkey. The skin is great and the meat doesn't dry out at all.

I guess the main problem people have with frying a turkey is the potential danger of the oil. Since there is a lot of it and the bird needs to be very dry before putting it in. Doug makes it look easy and if you use some common sense it is easy to do it safely.

Ebelskiver's - Not how I would spell it though

We went shopping a couple of weeks ago and found this little container at Williams-Sonoma

And of course I immediately put in the basket. And then during Thanksgiving week, Jody made some for breakfast.

Had to settle for strawberry jam on them as we don't have any raspberry, but they were still delicious. Pretty easy way of making this Danish treat.
