thanksgiving break is probably my most favorite time of the year.
for one it's the longest break i get from work (reason number 1 why i miss teaching), it involves lots of cooking and eating, relaxing, napping, christmas decorating, days of thanksgiving leftovers, afternoon walks with the dogs, and spending time with charlie.
on thanksgiving charlie and i watched the macy's day parade and then started cooking.
we had made caramel pie and rice balls the night before and on thanksgiving we made smothered brie for an appetizer, stuffed mushrooms, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and of course a turkey.
on thursday we put the turkey in the oven and then both took a nap on the couch. i don't think there's anything better than waking up to the smell of a cooking turkey.
we also video chatted with our families back in MD.
our turkey. it fell apart a bit while i was getting it out of the pan, but tasted fine.
