Enjoy your second dinner, Rock. We went to Thanksgiving dinner at my aunt's house with an exchange student once. She had roasted the turkey on Tuesday because it was easier to slice cold, the mash, stuffing and gravy were from boxes and packets, and there was no pumpkin pie. My cousin brought pecan pies from the grocery store. My contribution was broccoli and cauliflower in homemade cheese sauce.

I too made a second dinner that weekend. And even though there's often just the two of us, I make a minimum 12-pound turkey. We love leftovers.
Sounds like thanksgiving at MIL's house. She roasts the turkey in the morning so that it's stone cold when we got there. All of the vegetables are either out of a can, or stuffing out of a box (even though her son is sensitive to MSG), the gravy out of a jar (again MSG). She didn't season anything or use salt.

After that first year, I would make a full Thanksgiving dinner the weekend after. We have Thanksgiving here now, I do all of the cooking. She hasn't even come in the last few years, which doesn't really bother us anyway!

Great pie!

I think that would be a great project to do with little kids!

A pie with a rafter of various sized turkeys!

Word of the day, RAFTER = A group of domesticated turkeys.

Is that a group of graduating kindergarteners?

Roast turkey, mashed rutabaga-carrot-potatoes, French green beans, beets, Swedish cucumber salad, cranberry salsa, gravy, pumpkin pie, and elderberry-wild grape wine. I'm stuffed (and really glad the dishwasher is doing most of the clean up). Got the carcass roasting in the oven for stock. Made veggie stock while the turkey was roasting, so I'm all "stocked up" for soups.

Your cat must trust you.

The back of the chicken stuck to the foil, so those are actually pieces, arranged to look like the whole chicken.

Ahh, that would account for the white parts.
I thought it was some Danish method you used that gave it a different open kind of look. Now it makes sense!
