Sunday and The Trouble with Turkey!

We had an enjoyable Thanksgiving here at our home and a relaxing weekend...sort of . There were a gathering at our house of 20 people and things got quite hectic. Trying to get everything on the table at once and coordinating it with the turkeys ( one 13 lb er and one 8 lb breast) was a bit challenging. Everyone was having so much fun talking and noshing and drinking that it was difficult to corral them to the dinner table! Next year it's going to be a buffet for sure! The whole turkey is cooked up on our gas grill using the rotisserie attachment. I must say it came out the best ever this year with hat's off to our good friend Vinnie who man's the grill! 

Nala enjoyed the festivities and was the bell of the ball sort to speak. It was an opportunity for some family members to finally meet her. She was treated by various guests to pieces of turkey. I guess she looked so cute and hungry folks couldn't resist! But each eager guest didn't realize that she probably already had 15 pieces of turkey before they gave her one!

That night the rumbling began. Nala was sleeping her little bed in my room when I awoke around 4:30 AM to the sounds of Nala's stomach doing the 1812 Overture. I was waiting for any minute to make the mad dash with her to the back yard. She manage to hold out until 7:00 AM when I took her outside to have her holiday diarrhea! Yes a few pieces of turkey is a great treat, 3 pounds with dressing is a digestive disaster for a dog. Oh well...she was fine after that and just hung out with us as we dragged out the Christmas decorations and put them up this weekend. 

Let the holidays begin!


Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving and  Hanukkah  this week!
