Thanksgiving 2009

This is 1 long day in my life, and probably 1 that I would remember at future thanksgiving. I thank God that 2009 had been better than 2008.. cos we didnt get turkey last year.. For us, and like many other people, 2009 has been a year of slow recovery from our financial diaster of 2008. This year, we find ourselves in the right mood and have a little extra to celebrate with a turkey.

Weighing in at 9.5lbs, our very own little turks

What do I know about turkey cooking? Its not in my culinary skills set. So its all up to Doug.. and he makes the best turkey meals that I ever had.. 🙂 After 5 years, .. u would think that I learn a thing or 2 .. nope.. …

Stuffing with real fresh water chestnuts. They were great!

Some people find it amazing that we can cook decent meals onboard a small boat like Calliste, a 28ft BCC. Its incredible that we even have a good old marine oven and stove that would fit a small turkey.

A fun picture of Doug and turks

Doug had fun with the turkey preparation. We are all in pretty good spirits today.. 1 day later than the actual thanksgiving. A day off from work for Hari Raya Haji that we conveniently renamed Thanksgiving.. 🙂

Turks stuffed and sealed with pins.

Turks stuffed and sealed, ready for baking. ..

Golden brown turks! The skin was sooo gooooD!

.. After 3hrs of baking… yes it took all that time.. surprised? We were!

BTW, we are firm Norbest fan. Never a Buttonball for us! The red popup button indicator for fully cooked turkey is a must! And it works! All the time.
