Our Untraditional Thanksgiving

Since this was our first Thanksgiving in over 8 years that we were not on a Christmas Tree Lot we chose to go with our favorites and not the traditions of years of other’s ideas of how to spend this holiday.

We began with Bloody Maria’s using Tequila instead of Vodka (still only using ¼ shot of alcohol), celery stalk, big Green Olives stuffed with Blue Cheese, and Shrimp.  Its breakfast with all the goodies that tide us over until the main course is ready.

We baked our Ham in our Toaster Oven, it was moist without being raw tasting but done so that it was not dry.  And, for the taste, well the brown sugar packet that comes in the package that we basted continuously for a few hours made it the best tasting ham we have cooked together and let me say we have together cooked hundreds of hams.  We enjoyed succulent ham sandwiches on Sour Dough bread with Deviled Eggs that had been prepared with mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish and seasonings.

All of this served while watching Macy’s Parade and the traditional football games, the Lions playing the early game and then the Cowboys on the latter game. 

A nap is definitely in our future...this is Thanksgiving our way!

Happy Thanksgiving. Sounds like you have planned a feast suit for a king (and queen).
