TURKY IN THE STRAW

  • actually the turkey is in the oven- it was a sale turkey
  • that we got after Christmas- no too big but
  • enough to party with....
  • and I decided it had live in a frozen state
  • long enough and we also need the freezer room
  • Miss Ashley invited her mom and sisters
  • as it is Robyn's birthday tomorrow
  • we had birthdays in February and
  • more to come in March
  • so we are having a celebration dinner
  • for all of them
  • the rest is simple
  • carrots with a honey glaze
  • I cook the carrots and once they
  • are in the dish
  • I heat some honey in microwave
  • and drizzle over carrots
  • you do not need a lot when drizzling
  • potatoes mashed
  • gravy
  • no stuffing as non of the folks who are
  • coming eat it so why waste time and money
  • cranberries- yes
  • and a ice cream cake
  • it is nice way to have a celebration
  • and in this time of recession
  • we can still have fun by sharing
  • dinners together
  • our next dinner will be for Easter
  • Meme gets to do all the work - but
  • that is part of being a granny
  • and the time will come when
  • granny is too old.....and some
  • one else will have to step up
  • to the plate.......(s)
  • hugs from Meme who is going to the kitchen now

Sounds like a delicious birthday dinner. Make sure you write down all your recipes, menus, memories of baking to share with Miss Ashley one day.
