This Ain't Your Gramma's Roast Turkey

Turkey Day...2009.

Family, friends, fun and one hunk of a outdoor smoked turkey.
Yes...I said it, we smoked our bad boy this year and you know, once you go smoked...there is never really a desire to go back to the all day in the hot oven roasted thing again.

We like things simple {yes, simple like my mind when I decided to switch servers, dumb, dumb, dumb}.
Thanksgiving dinner was, 100% brought on by Karlio, who spends his holiday in the kitchen and never once complains...cuz well, that's his thing.
He cooks, we eat, every one gets along great.
We also like things simplified. The less time we spend on fancy stuff, the more time we get to spend hanging outside in the screened in porch, talking laughing and having fun. feed our family of 5 this year plus one more {our friend, Beverly}...this was what it was...

We "buffet" styled it inside because it was too beautiful to not eat outside. LOL, yes...that's what we did this year.
And since there wasn't a whole lot, we only had leftovers for two days instead of the mandatory 7.
Go us. :0)

Tonight we are heading off to Leesburg's annual Christmas parade and then most likely hitting up the "Redbox" kiosk machine for a movie or two.

Have a great day everyone!!

I love smoked turkey but this year we had to go with a smaller breast only since it was just the two of us.
I was soooooo worried about you guys, it was like you dropped off the face of the earth. And now I am soooooo happy you are all OK.
By the way...itd's snowing up here. Lucky you.

Mind sharing the Sweet Potatoes & Pineapple recipe? Sounds YUMMY!!!

I just LOVE that you're back, Kim! :o)

Of course! :0) Buy canned sweet potatoes and mush them. Add a can of crushed pineapple and mush that in. Top with mini marshmallows and bake.
Ba Da Bing, my head. LOL!!

PS. I missed you Sheila.
