11-22 Thanksgiving Celebration

Thanksgiving Celebration
Larry and I have been sleeping with a sheet and a light summer quilt on our bed, mostly we use the sheet, last night it got cooler so I had to get out a heavier blanket. We got up early in the morning to finish getting ready for our Thanksgiving celebration with Louise and Autumn, in all honesty I got up early, Larry always gets up early. The other day when we were at our club dance Larry was talking to Eileen about Thanksgiving. She told him she does not like to deal with preparing the turkey on Thanksgiving so she cooks the turkey the day before. Then she takes the meat off the bones and puts it into a crock pot with broth and heats it up for Thanksgiving. I decided to try preparing the turkey that way this year, it came out perfect. Louise and Autumn showed up about 10am with a lot of goodies (fudge, sugar cookies, raisin cookies and chocolate bars). Flo was very happy to see Autumn and Louise. While I worked in the kitchen we snacked on the goodies Louise brought plus, deviled eggs and a relish tray (cheese, sweet pickles, olives, ham and salami). Our Thanksgiving dinner was ready about noon. We had turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing, homemade noodles and crescent rounds rolls. For dessert we had Jello cherry cheese cake. Everything was delicious. We had a super Thanksgiving celebration with Louise and Autumn.

In the evening we watched a couple of documentaries. The first one we watched was Deli Man, it is about the history of delicatessens in the United States. The main character is Ziggy Gruber, who is a third-generation delicatessen man. The second documentary was The Magic Life, which was about three aspiring magicians. Both of the documentaries were good. Louise told us about a new channel she discovered on Roku that had some good documentaries, we watched part of The Magic Life on that channel but there were a lot of commercials and finally something happened and our Roku crashed, while it was rebooting Larry found The Magic Life on Amazon Prime so we finished watching it via Amazon, no commercials and we were able to fast forward to where we had been when the Roku crashed.
