This is a smoked turkey.
It's what we had for dinner last Thursday.
I took the week off from blogging and doing much of anything because children, spouses, cats and yams were underfoot.
For 21 people.
My candied yams were heavy on the butter and brown sugar. I had to use a colander. I think colander needs two ls, but apparently not.
That's the point of Thanksgiving, though, to get people to eat more yams.
I was going to get right back to it all, the blog, the writing, the job search, the freelancing yesterday, but it was the boys' birthday, so I had to run out and buy cupcakes and presents and spend the day making a weird cupcakeosaurus that was vaguely inappropriate, and one of the main reasons I don't Pinterest my creations.
Nope. Not sharing that pic.
But it tasted delicious.
Today I got back in the mode. Apparently a week off did something, because the story I'm writing just came pouring into my head and I can write for weeks on end. Which is good, because I want the first draft of this story done by mid-January. (Space adventure teenager is what I'm working on next.)
Happy December everyone - let the holiday festivities begin!
