Its time for the big bird again

Our Norbest star of the dinner table for Thanksgiving

It is interesting to me how people mark time as the years go by. For me, its marking the year with Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys. Like thinking back and remembering that last year, we had Christmas Turkey while sailing Eleanor at Sebana. The year before, we had a Christmas party at Sebana with quite afew cruisers, under the marina building… but we didnt bake our own turkey that time. We had the thanksgiving turkey then, but it was a good Norbest.

Rubbing on margerine, thyme, pepper.. and hmm what else? sage?

see… so you get the idea..

For last Christmas, we could only get a small Butterball, cos Norbest was sold out! It turn out ok, but still I will choose a Norbest over a Butterball anytime. Norbest wins, hands down!

Festive fruity fried rice!

I thought that a fruity fried rice will go very nicely with the festive theme and the bird. This year, we have guest on board, so we need more food. .. My recipe: Chopped cubes of water chestnuts, pear, cashew nuts, raisins and sultanas. Heat sunflower seed oil in pan, add raw cashew nuts, fry until slightly brown. Add water chestnuts and 2 cup rice, stir fry and add seseme oil. Keep stirring until everything looks well distributed and hot, add pears, raisins and sultanas. Keep stirring and when the new additions are properly mixed in, its done. This is a crunchy and mildly sweet fried rice. My 1st time trying this style and it turn out ok. Wish I added some red bell pepper chips. It would add color to the pot and look more festive!

Our star emerges from the oven! Nicely tanned and juicy I am sure!

This years Thanksgiving will be quite memorable. We are having a party! We never did have a bird sharing party before, but we here at Keppel and our friends are nearby to join us. Very unfortunate, but I didnt get pictures of the group and the great stuff that they brought! 2 champaigns, juices, fabulous corns. All went very well with the festive spirit. … ooohh!! wish I had more pictures!!!
