Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge it.The Christmas day is done now we can finish winding down this year of 2017. Did get a nice walkabout the park as the sun began to warm things up, and when Suzie was ready about 8:30 we took a trip into Yuma for a few supplies. Back home before 10 and now to take it mostly easy for the rest of the day.
|nice sunrise this morning|
|love the decorations on this site|
|nice quiet road back to the canal|
|the canal right there, see the fence in the distance?|
|the fence all the way across the border|
I made this fresh Cranberry Sauce with Orange Zest, one of our favorites to to go with Turkey or Chicken, for the recipe Click HERE or my recipe blog top right side bar.
|so easy to do and so very tasty|
Yes we had a Christmas dinner yesterday with Turkey and ham plus all the stuff, but..
My plan was to cook up this 10.5 lb Turkey I picked up on sale the other day A great deal I could not turn down. It has been thawed out in our fridge for a couple of days so needs to be cooked. And of course because I can do up to a 12 lb bird on our Weber Q 100 this is the way it will be done. Rinsed it off rubbed with Olive oil and my spices all over it . Preheat the Weber about 15 minutes on high, turn down to about 1/3 heat set the Turkey on the grill and close the lid. Lid has to be closed tight and no peaking for at least a couple of hours, Internal temp by the thigh not touching the bone should be 180 F and done to perfection. Turkey on the grill about l:45 plow and slow really does the trick
|now this was a great deal|
Then at our usual Happy hour time 3 pm Bill and Patsy joined us and we had some people stop by to say HI! Another rv couple from Alberta Canada that are spending their first winter here in the southwest from Alberta, Dave and Cheryl also fellow Bloggers, Check them out HERE . Not sure if they should stop or not, but heck we outside anyway so at least stop and say hi!

Eventually time to wrap up Happy hour, our Turkey about done taters soon be ready (garlic mashed) and the gravy to prep. Bill and Patsy were joining us and they were bringing cooked carrots and dressing as well as and Apple crisp and Christmas cake that they had made.
|turkey was perfect on our Weber Q|
|I let it rest for a while then carved it up|
|now this sure did the trick tonight, |
and of course lots of leftovers
