I made my first Thanksgiving meal today, and I’m proud to say that it came out pretty tasty!

We had a citrus-rosemary turkey breast, plus a whole assortment of side dishes to go with it.

Ooh, and a chocolate bourbon pecan pie, which we started on yesterday. We were too full to touch that or the pumpkin pie after dinner.

Joe has discovered the joy of blowing raspberries and kept us all entertained with that between naps. He’s such a funny kid.

Tomorrow, we start on the leftovers!

  1. How did I know that you would sneek some bourbon i ntaht pecan pie… I bet Jim was happy to see you again. It’s been such a long time since you’ve “talked”.

    Glad you had a great Thanksgiving!

  2. Whatta spread!! Ya done good, kiddo. I loved the comment about Joe’s “razzberries”….do you remember how David did that almost constantly at Epcot, when he was about Joe’s age? And you were about nine, I guess. Tell Patrick and Joe that Aintnaincy says “hey.”

  3. Hey, Aintnaincy! I do remember David’s razzberries, and lots of happy babbling! He was the first baby I spent much time with, so I’ve always thought of 6 months as the perfect fun baby age. And Joe’s just a week away from it now!

    Krisie, I have to say, after the first bite of pie I was hit with a sudden urge to sing karaoke. But it passed! Next year I’ll have you over and we can figure out how to work a Grey Goose dirty martini into the meal!

  4. Hey, I know the post wasn’t directed to me, but what the hey is a Grey Goose dirty martini?? Six months is fun, but so are the ensuing few years….I have always hated the phrase “Terrible Twos”…..between two and three years of age are fascinating, with language development, etc….Of course, as you know, I have lots of pet peeves, but that’s one of them!! Have fun with your little man, and after rice cereal, there’s always baby food sweet potatoes, which I think all babies love!

  5. Aintnaincy, a dirty martini is a martini with olive juice poured in so it tastes salty and looks kind of cloudy. Grey Goose is a vodka you can use to make it.

    I am *so* looking forward to sweet potatoes — I can’t wait to see his face when he tries them!
