I hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving! Today Mary and Phil, Phil's parents, Joe and Monica and my neighbor Jinhee were brave enough to join me for Thanksgiving and eat the first turkey I've ever baked.
I started out by brushing the turkey with olive oil, garlic powder, basil and sage.
Xena offered to keep an eye on the turkey when I had to take a shower.
I declined her help and shooed her off the oven, as that is against the rules. In spite of no kitty supervision, the turkey came out great.
Here is me pretending to carve the turkey. Joe took over after the photo was taken.
I also made chicken and noodles. Yum!
And we had a lot of other delicious food including a chocolate tart and homemade pumpkin ice cream, thanks to Mary and Phil, but didn't get photos. It was great day with friends and family.
