Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Christmas Aftermath

Dinner was pretty good if I say so myself.

Big thanks to Carla & Nicki for their defrosting tips.

While I was able to get by with what I already own.  Having this dinner made me realize why people have all the things in their kitchen that they do.  I don’t own any platters, enough serving dishes, a roaster with a lid or a gravy boat.  While I am not yet running out to buy these things I have put them in the back of my mind should I ever decide to do this again.

Dinner was turkey, mashed potatoes, steamed asparagus, steamed Brussel sprouts, macaroni pie, stuffing & gravy.  It was delicious and I was stuffed after it all.  🙂

There are lots of leftovers.  I will eat like a king for days!!

On a different note, I managed to score the iTouch Diva has been lusting after for a very nicely reduced price.  🙂  I love Boxing Day sales!!

  2. So glad that it all worked out. I remember how scary it was making my first turkey. At the same time, I love to eat, so nothing could keep me from cooking. 😉

  3. Happy to read that Christmas turned out awesome.

    Happy Holidays and all the best for the new year.
