Six-Word Saturday Meme #51

Posted on: December 6, 2014


Andy prepared his first Thanksgiving meal!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis year, Andy asked me if he’d like for him to prepare the Thanksgiving meal. In the past, his dad has always been the one to take on the stress. I thought it would be wonderful and brave of him.

To be honest, I also felt a little skeptical. I had heard the stories for first turkeys and knew they tended to turn into disasters. Andy read ahead about how to cook one and decided to use an oven bag. He also learned that stuffing is best prepared separate from the turkey. Although his parents were warned to have a back-up plan, I respected how much thought Andy was putting into the venture and stayed optimistic.

His turkey and side dishes ended up tasting delicious! Over all, I don’t think a restaurant would have done better. Besides the turkey, he prepared stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, and cranberry sauce. His dad also brought over deviled eggs and squash pie. I’m proud of my husband!

That’s my week. What about yours?

Since our Thanksgiving meal, Andy has also prepared some sensational turkey sandwiches too. 🙂

Good for him! Any time my husband cooks is a treat.

Good for Andy! I’m impressed 🙂
