Thanksgiving in August

Ok - Now this will be a great example of how lax I have been this year with my camera.  We have company for the day, have a great time......... and my camera remains idle!

Anyway - On Saturday  we invited Nate and Krystal and Ava to join us for dinner.  One of the things I really like about staying here is  having a full size oven, refrigerator and KITCHEN.  During the winter while we RV - big dinners  like this just don't happen.

Hors d'oeuvres included fresh carrots, celery and tomatoes with ranch dipping,  and crackers -and cheese.

Pre - dinner cocktails: Your choice of  straberry dacquari, pina colada, marguarita, wine or beer

Dinner include a 13 lb turkey, beautifully browned and perfectly moist with sausage stuffing, ( that's the dish with the foil still on it!)  mashed potatoes and gravy, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, fresh rolls and cranberry bread, and cranberry sauce.

After dinner  we had to decide between pegs and jokers or pickleball.   Right! Yes - we donned the shorts and sneakers, grabbed our pickleball paddles and headed to Churchill Rec Center.  It was about 6:30.  We played about 5 games and Rich and Nate had a great time destroying our confidence.........But we just laughed and smiled through the beating!   It was a typical hot, muggy evening.

Back at the house, it was time for dessert.   Rich had baked pumpkin pie the day before. Too late for coffee.....but the pie was delicious!
