On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, Michael headed to the farmers market where the lady at the Rainbow Meadows farmstand informed him that our turkey "got to eighteen pounds and kept right on growing...to twenty-eight pounds."
A twenty-eight pound turkey!!!!
Here's Michael getting ready to put the turkey in the oven. We estimated that it would take six and a half hours to cook, but it ended up only taking four and a half hours. We had to scramble to get the rest of dinner made two hours early.
Dinner was simple, the leftovers were delicious, the company was perfect, and we have enough turkey in the freezer to last us until February.
