Thanksgiving Pics

Some pics for ya...

Me and My Prize Winning Bird


Here you can see some of the apricot stuffing and the herb bouquet.



Slicing and section of the bird....


I never realized how hairy my arms was until I saw this picture. I must have been italian in a former life. I have heard the phrase the hairy hidden hand of the White Man...now it makes total sense.



All of the kids enjoying their food!

Sunday night is Roast Beef night




My beautiful wife requested I make some type of roast beef for dinner tonight and being the local supermarket was featuring 1/2 price cuts, I elected to prepare a Rump Roast. Nothing too elaborate-simply used some spices as a dry rub and found a recipe online that I gave a whirl. I went off the board though and when finished removed the roast and used the drippings to prepare a pseudo Au Jus with the drippings, Merlot, and some other odds and ends(lime juice, soy sauce, worcestershire.)
