The last turkey dinner I cooked, 2013
So yesterday was Thanksgiving. We had a very nice quiet day. My family know that gone are the days of my cooking a large turkey dinner! Both boys are either away or traveling so there were just the two of us.
About 2:30 p.m. we wandered (in the car) down towards the ocean where we visited The Claim Jumper, one of our favorite restaurants. We knew they were fully booked but they said that if we just walked in they would probably be able to fit us in -- and they did! There were 8 or 10 couples with reservations waiting in line. We just went up to the counter and flashed our "Tom Landry" club card and they seated us right away. This is a membership card for the restaurant where we get points for every time we choose to eat there, a free meal for a certain number of points and a free meal on our birthdays. Not a bad deal since the food is excellent and the servings large. We had the turkey dinner of course -- 4 large slices of carved turkey, vegetables, dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, preceded by a salad and followed by pumpkin pie. The really good thing about this restaurant is that there is always way more than we can eat at one sitting so we get leftovers boxed up. Guess what we had for dinner tonight?.....Another turkey dinner!!! Since I don't care for pumpkin pie we took our desserts home too and Barry had mine this evening. But don't feel bad for me because he went to the grocery store and bought gelato tiramisu for me.YUMMY!!!
I didn't waste all day on the laptop today. Although I WAS on the laptop, I wrote my article for our News Magazine. Nothing very earthshaking, but at least I finished it before the deadline, December 11th. I joined the publications committee of the HOA a couple of years ago, consequently I frequently contribute articles and photographs to the News Magazine, which helps to keep me out of mischief.
That's all for now. See you again later.
