The (Very Nearly) Perfect Thanksgiving
I purchased a small 3 lb. Wrapped Turkey Roast which consists of both dark and white meat. I roasted this the day before Thanksgiving so it could cool and I could slice it. On Thanksgiving morning I placed a slice of turkey on a platter, lathered a layer of crawfish, olive, and pimento stuffing topped with another slice of turkey. I repeated the process throughout the entire roast, finishing with a meal that resembled a Giant Turkey Crawfish Club Sandwich. I topped it with gravy and roasted it another 40 minutes to finish it. I served this with the remaining Crawfish Olive Pimento Stuffing and even more gravy with Cranberry Sauce on the side.
A platter of Cajun Thanksgiving, fire, football on the tube, a happy cat n' dog, and a glass of Chateau Ste Michelle Chardonnay. I count my blessings this year, probably more than I ever have before. Although we miss "Mommy" and can't wait for her return in a day or two Dharma, Bodhi, and I wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!
