11-28-11 return of the turkey

You know that scene from A Christmas Story, but here it is again...

And, because they cut out the best line... Ralphie's older self, narrating, then says, "The heavenly aroma still hung in the house. But it was gone, all gone! No turkey! No turkey sandwiches! No turkey salad! No turkey gravy! Turkey Hash! Turkey a la King! Or gallons of turkey soup! Gone, ALL GONE!"

Um, yeah. It was kind of like that. 

Thursday night after long naps and football, we start to look for the turkey leftovers and . . .  they.are.GONE.

Somehow with 11 people we put away a 20 pound bird without enough left over to make a single sandwich. Next year I'm bringing back-up turkey.

So we went home with nothing but a chess pie and spiced apples which, in the grand scheme of things, are really the two most important leftovers there are.

And last night, one turkey breast, a can a green beans, one sweet potato, and some stuffing later and we had ourselves a feast fit for the apples.
