Thanksgiving Weekend Wrap-Up

Thanksgiving was fantastic this year. It was my first Thanksgiving in Kentucky and we had a great time with family, food, and football (My 3 F's of Thanksgiving). Some pictures to wrap up our holiday:

Pouring the oil in the pot
Lighting the turkey burner (appropriate name today!)

Me and the Hubby
Our little family

Rubbing the bird, getting ready for the drop!
About to drop the bird!
The bird is safely in the oil. 45 minutes later, that bird was done and tasty!
I wish I had taken a picture of the finished turkey! It was a gorgeous bird and it was delicious! The outside skin was crispy and flavorful and the meat was juicy, moist, and oh-so-good! My pecan pie also turned out fantastic!

First pie I have ever made!
The rest of our holiday weekend was jam packed as well. Friday, Jerame's cousin and his wife came to our house to visit and we had a great time. We went down to a local restaurant and enjoyed drinks and some food before coming back to our house to play games and drink some more. It was a fun night! On Saturday, we returned to Jerame's mother's house to help her get her Christmas decorations out and put up her tree. This took most of the morning and afternoon and by the time we got home, it was civil war time! It was the perfect civil war (if you are a Duck fan that is!) with the Ducks winning it. The Ducks will now play in the Pac 12 Championship game and should they win (and they definitely should!), they will go to the Rose Bowl. Not bad Duckies! On Sunday, Jerame and I were lucky enough to get free tickets to the Bengals/Brown's game in Cincinnati. This was my first NFL game and it was awesome! The Bengals stadium is so different than any college stadium I have ever seen and just the fact that I was seeing in person what I have been watching on TV since I was 10 was amazing. The hubby and I are definitely looking forward to attending more NFL games in the future hopefully. It was a busy weekend, I think you can see why it took me so long to get back to my blog :)
