We were very blessed to have Thanksgiving with Arianne, Gary, Madsen, Eden, Aspen and Rhys. They invited us to their house but I asked them to come to our home, because it is bigger. We love this family and Arianne and Gary prepared lots of delicious food. Todd and I can truthfully say that the turkey was the best that we have ever eaten! Arianne did a terrific job on that 27 1/2 lb bird. She put it in a salt brine, put butter under the skin on the breast and had it seasoned with herbs from her garden to perfection! Then her stuffing made from homemade whole wheat bread was so good that even Shay had seconds and he is not a stuffing guy. Gary had a fruit salad and a delicious shrimp salsa hors'devor, they also brought spiced corn and apple and pumpkin pie all from the bounties of their garden. Todd made his Hamblin fruit salad and we made the spinach salad, lemon meringue and pecan pie, ham, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes to go with Ariannes delicious gravy and it was a majoy FEAST!
