The day my life changed -
The first birthday party.
Two years old.
Not a birthday, but look at these kids! Are they all grown up now? This was taken the same month as his sixth birthday.
I honestly was not planning on updating you all with turkey info. This bird started to take on a life of it own (funny how it can do that postmortem, huh?). It baked for almost exactly 6 hours. Not bad considering the size. I started at 400 for an hour, 350 for 3 hours, and 250 for 2 hours. Done perfectly. Then we had to figure out how to get it out of the pan.
Aren't ethnic holidays fun?? Gives us an opportunity to expose ourselves to things outside of our daily lives. For instance - I've got a crockpot of pinto beans cooking right now. If it weren't Cinco Da Mayo I would probably have a crockpot of ..... oh wait, I planned the beans before I realized it was a mexican holiday. Yeah, like we never eat mexican/american food. I'd rather go to our favorite local Mexican joint to celebrate with a margarita being served to me. Budget wise that wouldn't be smart. Smart is a crockpot of pinto beans. Maybe I'll just blend up a crystal light with ice and pretend it's a margarita.
