A Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends and even us Canadian snow birds.

Where are we today ?
        Here we are in Texas and we are being thankful again for our good health and all the friends and family that we have. We had our Canadian Thanksgiving back in October before we left for the south. Got together with our families and friends there, gotta get away from that cold blustery winter weather. And we are so lucky that we can celebrate again. 
        Today is just gonna be a great weather day again. Something else to be thankful for. Sunshine clear blue skies and temps in the high 60's, yep we loving it.
        Not going anywhere today, but did get a few walkabouts the resort, enjoying the exercise and sunshine.
nice decoration by the office
the pool is open but not heated,
too chilly for us
         Just puttered around for a bit, maintenance things, cleaned and and lubed our tow bar (do this every month or so). Fire up our generator to exercise under load for about 45 minutes. Even got to read outside for a bit before our free Thanksgiving meal at the clubhouse 1 pm. Well almost free we took a large pumpkin pie. They supplied the Ham, Turkey, gravy, mashed taters and fresh baked buns. Other people brought more side dishes, green bean casserole, baked corn, macaroni salad, potato salad, corn, cake, banana pudding and so much more. We had a feast all so good too.
our pumpkin pie
pretty good turnout 28 people altogether
our table decoration
lotsa food one of three tables
chatting with people here too
        They asked if anyone knew how to carve a Turkey, and with no takers I volunteered myself. Don't now how many I have carved over the years so no problem at all.
right back in the kitchen again
       Then attack the food and so much of it was very good to, no reason to leave here hungry thats for sure.
        We don't normally eat like this, anymore so moderation and really the only meal we had today, so as not to overdo it.
all was very good
even a tiny piece of pie and banana pudding, ate too
much but did manage to walk some it off this afternoon
         They had no plans for the carcass just going to pitch it. And I really can't see a good soup base go to waste so I volunteered to take it home and boiled it for a few hours to make a very tasty broth. Once strained and cooled its in the fridge until I can skim the fat and finish the soup. Maybe tomorrow but probably Saturday, depends on how my repair goes tomorrow.
the makings of a tasty turkey soup
                 Now even got couple hours enjoying our e-readers and discussing where the rest of our winter travels may take us. We have lots of options, just need to make make some cancellations as the days go by. Depending on the way our wheels take us.
a wonderful sunny afternoon
         We really enjoyed this wonderful Thanksgiving meal here today meeting a few new people in the process.
          Glad you could make time for the visit today and thanks for dropping in.

  2. That was one nice looking Thanksgiving meal. Jeanette would be quick to take that turkey carcass too. She also boils the remains to make a great soup base.

  3. Looks like you had a fabulous day. I'm with you though, I'd want the leftover turkey bones and such for a super soup to enjoy over the next day or so.

  4. Wowsers, that's a lot of food on that plate. Sure is nice once in a while, but certainly not a good idea for every day.
    I think we just might have to find a use for the next turkey carcass we have. That soup idea seems like a good one.

    1. They were actually small luncheon plates that they supplied, so not really as much food as it looks like.
      I don't like to pass up the opportunity to make a good soup.

  5. We were at a Texas campground a few years ago for Thanksgiving and they had a similar event - I just love potlucks as everyone seems to bring their special dish. That is a fine looking plate of food you had. We had 9 for dinner and my plate looked similar except I had gravy on more of mine - I could eat it about every day.

    1. For us it was an extravagant treat lately, but most potlucks are very good.

  6. That was one great looking Turkey Dinner - clubhouse pot-lucks are always a lot of fun.

    1. It was wonderful, we don't do a lot of potlucks, but will on special holidays. I still prefer to cook our own meals.
