we had a lovely thanksgiving traveling 10 hours east to massachusetts to spend with two of kenny’s brothers.
thursday was our cooking day…my sister-in-law prepared the standard turkey dinner while i took notes in my head (dry sherry makes an already delicious turkey gravy 100% tastier; a stick of butter inside the cavity of the turkey makes the white meat even juicier, etc). we cooked, we ate, we played Wii. fabulous!
on friday, we caravaned down to plymouth, massachusetts where we toured the mayflower II and Plimouth Plantation which were just fantastic living history areas of a colonial village and a Wampanoag village.
Steve and Peg’s (brother and sister in law) have a wood stove in their kitchen eating area. every time we leave their house after staying with them we plan out how to have working fireplaces and a wood stove in our home. it’s just the best heat!
in a world of GPS, we still use maps that we pick up free from AAA.
