Thanksgiving Weekend!
Yes, we had another fiesta! :)
Yes, it was the time for the biggest Turkey Night!
This year our dad, super cool chef :) decided to brine the turkey the day before
Thanksgiving (13th). Here's our dad to prepare the brine.
Our friend.... no... our turkey was sit in the big pot and
was ready to spend in the fridge over night.
I, Momo had to make sure if it was stored ok along with many other goodies.

This past weekend was so boootiful. It was about 23C and nice and sunny. We were

all out together at the same time in our nearest park and spent a few hours there.

We enjoyed nice Autumn breeze and sniffed leaves on the ground. After our long walky, we took a shower and had to take a power nap as usual.
"Turkey Dinner.... Turkey Dinner..."
The turkey was removed from the brine and it was about to make a journey to
the Big Green Egg (BBQ).
This time, I Pinot made sure that our turkey was placed nicely on the turkey stand.

I, Momo sampled the cheese sause for one of the veggie dishes. :)

Mom proudly posted this photo.... :P

This was the only time that she gave her hand to dad

during the preparation. She needed to look after our brudder for a long time

after this photo was taken.

"AFTER"
The skin was very smoky and tasty.
Our dinner was almost ready!
This year, mom spent lots of time with James and
she couldn't take as many as photos she wanted.
Can you see two small bowls? These were stuffing for us!
We also had two HUGE bowls of stuffing for humans. (Mom loves stuffing!)

There is no photos but we of course enjoyed HUGE turkey meal.

Thank you very much dad for our wonderful dinner! You're the BEST!! :) :)

OMG the turkey looks devine. The pinkies have cooked chickens in the komado on a stand like that but they put a can of beer inside the chicken. It's called beer can chicken haa haa...true!

Happy belated Canadian Thanksgiving maties.

Oh, Mr. Turkey seemed to be taller and heavier than any of us.
When your family ready for another adoption, will your parents consider me? You two have everything I wish to have.

Um, just asking, but do you suppose your mom brought your brother James home just so she could get out of cooking?

That raw turkey looks like it wants to sit up and have a conversation with you! But after the trip to the avocado the turkey was definitely saying, "EAT ME!"

Mmm Mmmm.

Looks a very, very yummy dinner that you had for Thanksgiving. We like the stuffing too, almost as much as the roast itself.
