I have to admit, I was a bit nervous about the quality of my food since I was going simply on the instructions of a 5 dollar magazine. Martha's good but is she really that good? So I decided that I'd better go a little bit heavy on the dinner table decor. I figured that if the food didn't taste great..... at least I could make sure it would LOOK good. Presentation is everything........or so I've heard!
Well, Martha didn't let me down and the Turkey turned out absolutely wonderful. The Big Guy was not sure how to carve the bird so I gave him Martha's Turkey carving instructions to follow but he's not as quick a learner as I am........it was a bit of a rough chop job, I have to admit but it didn't change the great flavor one bit.
Just in case you were wondering wether I did a ham or not, I followed Martha's recipe on that as well and it turned out just great!
What do you think Lisa? Did it pass muster? I know your boots are pretty tough to fill but.......it wasn't half bad, was it?
Now, are you wondering what I got for Christmas this year? It was quite a shock for me..........it gave me a hot flash and I'm not even going through menopause! Wait for it.........
My BABY is having a BABY! Yup, I'm gonna be a Gramma! Ok, it's not gonna happen till next August but I'm just too excited to keep it a secret. See these cool toques we all got to announce the new addition to our family?Uncle Lawrence, Aunty Rebecca, Uncle Reuben and Aunty Breanne were almost excited as Gramma.......just in case you weren't paying attention.......that's me......Gramma!
