Now Look Who's Stuffed

Now look who’s stuffed--it sure ain’t the turkey!

Finished my cooking this morning.  The cranberry salad was a hit and really very easy to make.  I used one can of whole berry cranberry sauce and added one small can of crushed pineapple, one finely  chopped apple, and one cup of chopped pecans.  I dissolved one large box of red jello in three fourths cup of boiling water and stirred it in with the fruit along with three-fourths cup of orange juice.  For the creamy part in the middle--that's just a cup of whipping cream whipped with an 8 oz package of softened cream cheese blended until smooth.
Everybody stood around the kitchen while the last minute preparations were made.
As usual, there was plenty of food
And an ample selection of desserts

Hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving day.  We certainly did with lots of family, feasting, fellowship, and football.  Us ladies also had plenty cooking, cleaning, and chatting going on in the kitchen before and after the big meal.
Almost time to eat.
Pretty sad looking bird by the end of the meal.

Added to all our other many blessings, the sun finally came out (first time since last Friday) and we had a gorgeous fall day.
There was football to watch
We wanted a picture of the siblings, but they were a hard group to control.
Took several tries to get this photo of Carl, Vera, Betty, and Edd.
Don't worry about the Peanut.  He had his turkey, too.
And his nap after the big meal.

The photos tell the story of today.  Thanks for tagging along.
