Thanksgiving Festivities Part Two

>Back again, and it’s time for more Turkey pictures!
Just so you know, Thanksgiving celebrations vary greatly between families in the US. You can get anything and everything from a vegetarian turkey (tofurkey) to a deep-fried turkey. It also doesn’t always have to revolve around a turkey as the main course. My future brother-in-law’s family, for example, like to barbecue tri-tip as a family tradition.
While our turkey was in the oven, we prepared the side dishes including both sweet AND mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, and cranberry sauce.
This is what the turkey looks like once it’s finished. You can see that the mayonnaise rub we added really kept it juicy with a nice crispy glaze. The meat thermometer should read 165 F in the thickest part of the breast.

Here you can see the marshmallows melted and browned on top of the sweet potatoes. Yum… I mean yam!! :)
My dad did one heck of a job carving up the turkey meat. This is always his specialty.
This is a picture of the “wishbone”. Every year, we save this one specific bone, let it dry, and let two very special people make a wish. Once the bone is dry and brittle, they pull with their pinky fingers until the it breaks and whoever ends up with the biggest piece gets their wish fulfilled!
Then it was time to serve up and bon appetit!

Have a wonderful day! Regular posts will resume tomorrow :)
