Thanksgiving 2019

We had 17participants for Thanksgiving: Billie Jo and her family of Joel, Stone and Dakota: Dave, Liz and Jack; Rob and Linda; Kelly, Mike, Izzabella, Phoenix and Jesse; Eric, Kathryn and Jim. As usual set and clean up were a major undertaking and Kathryn cooked a perfect meal. We tried something new this year – spatchcocking. Spatchcocking a turkey is the process of removing the backbone and flattening it onto a baking tray. It seems a bit intimidating but it’s not difficult to do, saves a lot of cook time and helps everything cook evenly. With this method, you can cook a 10-12 lb turkey in about 70-90 minutes

On Wednesday I drove to Albany and picked up Barb and Joe while Kathryn cooked.  We ate our traditional Thanksgiving Eve dinner of pizza.  We ended up making an emergency trip to the RiteAid Pharmacy because Ateria didn’t send all the necessary medications.  Thursday morning Eric played pickup football in the Barneveld Turkey Bowl.  The basic strategy was to have everyone go long and throw the bomb.



Kathryn made a Thanksgiving Dinner that couldn’t be beat.
