How Was Your Turkey (Day)?!

Miss Ginger's was moist and delicious!

After spending 24 hours in the fetal position (thanks, Nutwood Beth!, for burning that image into my brain!) Miss Ginger's bird spent the next 5 hours basking in the infrared glow of the gas grill!
(Miss Ginger masked the wings with aluminum foil so it's little elbows wouldn't burn!!)











Miss G finished setting the table just as the first guests were arriving!














And, oh, what FABULOUS guests they were! Miss G is blessed with the most incredible family and "extended" family that anyone could dream of! Everyone seemed to have a great time, and there was never a lull in the lovely conversation!
Copius amounts of wine were flowing, and Miss G just did a quick "straw poll" in the wine cellar to answer the question many have asked. Yes, the red wine drinkers at the table DID polish off an entire case of pinot noir, and from the stories I've been hearing, many of them were feeling the affects of that today! The white wine drinkers, being the demure group that we are, only polished off about half a case, give or take a bottle. Okay, take.. there were only five left. And considering there were only about 4 of us drinking white, it's a miracle we weren't feeling worse this morning!
It might have been one of Miss G's best Thanksgivings ever!

Red goes down easier than white thus the higher consumption.
