While enjoying the moderate temps outside an hour ago, I heard squawking overhead and noticed a big flight of snow geese headed south. Which prompted me to open an ap and look at the surface map.
It looks like we are in for some rain later today. But that's okay, too. The turkey and the ham are in the roaster, Belle is puttering around in the kitchen, and I have a good roof overhead. Lots to be thankful for. Family will show up in a couple of hours, and the feast will be amazing.
The big decision I have now is when I'm going to cook the traditional after-Thanksgiving gumbo. This evening after the party subsides, I will break up the turkey carcass and drop it into a big stock pot. That smoked turkey will lend an amazing flavor to the stock, and I'll use that as a base for a gumbo either on Friday or Saturday. I really enjoy the after-Thanksgiving gumbo.
Belle is banging pots in the kitchen, so I suppose I should go see what I can do to help.
