THANKSGIVING SPOONER STYLE

By Uncle Hans


There is a long history in the Rechsteiner family of not celebrating a holiday on the actual day and Thanksgiving was no exception.  This is Nov 28 as we missed by only a few days.  Here is the KP section and Carol looks on.  Actual, Carol was a driving force in bringing the whole meal together for halftime of the game, which is a very narrow window for a turkey.








.....Jake got elected "carver guy" and got to use Renee's new electric knife.........





.....as usual, the dinner was buffet..........





.....Carver Guy was hopeful that the Packers would beat Atlanta, but they did not..........





The fare was vintage with turkey, sausage stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, fresh-baked buns, cranberry sauce (Grandma made it!), pumpkin and cherry pie with real whipped cream.  Never have so many enjoyed a halftime so much!.......





.....these are the "Buns Girls"  Nice Buns!........





...........Rex called just as we were headed for the table, giving the cooks an extra five minutes to get the thing together.......





.....I was thankful that Rex called and sad that they could not be there.  But no Rechsteiner is complete without some bizarre project or entertainment.  To actually see chainsawing, champagne indoor fireworks, or the cat neuter in the garage...........
 

You have to stay tuned to the blog for the next few days.
