I wear Big Dog lounge pants (drawstring waist) or scrub pants for fat pants...that way, I can just loosen the drawstring as the meal continues...my idea of a progressive dinner.

I can confirm that a serving is NOT equivalent to a portion. I weighed 2.5 oz. of breast meat. It was one slice, minus a bit, off the breast closest to the bone. The tenderloin was over 2.5 oz. I ate 6 oz. of turkey, didn't eat my potatoes, but I ate all my b'sprouts and veggie casserole. Only had 1/2 of a Parkerhouse roll (2/3 ww 1/3 AP). It was very good. My piece of Gingerbread awaits me. The verdict is that it is not as moist or dense as the DH's gra ndma's. Too cakelike. It was good, but not like his grandma made. He did take all except one piece back to his house...he can deal with figuring out which pants are his fat pants!

FWIW, the turkey was very moist, tender, and the gravy was excellent. I know that there is poutine in my future soon made with turkey gravy and freshly dug potatoes.

The artichoke mini-bites were very good. I made pastry rather than use won ton wrappers and only made 12. I left out the black olives (didn't have any in the house). I used this recipe (minus the wrappers and the black olives).

Oh, shoot! I forgot what a poutine is!

At another local store, I had to purchace $10 worth of groceries for a turkey at 89 cents a pound. But, I had enough store points saved up to get one for free. I got the free one. Two turkeys in the freezer for a grand total of $6 plus change. Now that's a deal.

I'm going to barbecue one and share it with Sprout, P.A.G. and their families for Thanksgiving. Good times-a-comin'! I get to see 5 great ladies (DW, two DD's, and two DGD;s), and a couple of great SIL's, and maybe go turkey hunting next weekend (after Thanksgiving). Does life get any better than that? No it doesn't.
