We had our Thanksgiving Turkey yesterday. There were only the four of us for dinner - Jim, me, Andrew and Eric. Andrew's girlfriend Anri had to work. But we had a lovely meal and a great visit with the two boys.
When the kids were in school every spring break we rented a house on Chesterman's Beach near Tofino B.C. Quite a few years in a row we would cook a turkey while we were there and spend most of the week eating turkey -- Turkey taco's, Turkey pizza, Turkey omelets, Turkey sandwiches and finally we would have Turkey SURPRISE -- like really - turkey? It is my favourite way to have turkey actually. So - although we had a great turkey dinner last night -- Tonight it is Turkey SURPRISE -- you have to say it like it is a SURPRISE!!
Step one --- everything from dinner ( except the potatoes ) goes in a big bowl and is mixed together -- gravy, all the leftover vegetables, stuffing, bits of turkey -- mix together and put in a casserole dish.
Step two -- Potatoes are cold and hard so mix in some milk, sour cream, a couple of eggs and some grated cheese -- whip up with the electric beater until nice and fluffy and smooth.
Step three -- put potatoes mixture on the turkey mixture and bake in the oven for about 1 hour at 350 degrees.
Step four -- wait for it to cook!
There is Jenny hoping just a bit more turkey will fall on the floor!!
We went for another nice walk today in Lighthouse Park - the day was gray but there was no rain. And we went and voted - so we can sit and watch the Federal election results while we eat Turkey SURPRISE.
