Thanksgiving at my Bella's house.
Her very first Thanksgiving and she was excited to cook.
I headed over to her house with some helpful items she doesn't have, ready for a day of cookin' and later, a day of eatin' with the family. I was really looking forward to hanging out with her and making the meal together.
"Where's the turkey sweetie?" I ask.
"What Momma? Don't you have it?"
"Didn't Pup bring it over Monday?" I ask again.
"No! I thought you guys were bringing it over thawed today!"
We stare at each other for a minute.
A minute longer.
We start laughing our asses off.
I call Pup. "Hey babe, didn't you bring the turkey over to Bella earlier this week like we talked about?"
"Oh no!" I hear.
Turkey is frozen solid.
Pup brings it over anyway. Bella and I hunker down at her and B's laptop, frantically seeing what we can do.
Guess what? You can cook a frozen turkey. No problem. We followed the instructions from the Mayo Clinic and the Minnesota Department of Health and threw that bad boy into the oven.
Six hours later, we're eating that 11 pound beauty.
Wine, turkey, stuffing, corn pudding, my awesome gravy, Lorenzo's green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, and some wii Jeopardy.
Life is good. Even when it starts out frozen.
