We have just a little brioche left, so what to do before it goes bad – no preservatives? How about a French Toast using the brioche? Wonderful! And easy. The addition of fresh nutmeg really adds a different flavor level. And then just a small dusting of powdered sugar. No syrup or butter needed. How about, too, some fresh blueberries on top? Can’t have breakfast without some bacon. Everything is better with bacon. In this case, turkey bacon. And this particular brand from Costco is very good. And it crisps up well, too. And we just found out that some information found on the Boise Foodie Blog, will be in the next issue of Travel & Leisure! Yea!
Yes it was! A very good Thanksgiving with family. (Sorry you had to work, Chris. There’s a platter waiting for you.) Mac, Marnie, Sophia, Robin, Buddy and me. That made a good group. Mac may have a new Holiday Dinner job – The “Making of the Rolls“. They were super! The stuffing did not turn out so good. (Pictured here to the left) I think next time I will leave it in the turkey. It dried out too much. Crunchy. Difficult to eat. The turkey, though, was delicious and there is some leftover. Yea!! Dried corn was off, for some reason. Even with those drawbacks, we had a good time. Here are some photos. Enjoy! To see any of these photos enlarged, Left-Click the picture.
And a great party it was! Great to see so many people there and to talk to them. Thanks Kat for opening your home to all of us. And the decorations, as in this tree where Robin and Tina are chatting, were marvelous. And the food that everyone shared was fabulous.

I want to thank our StateFarm insurance agent, who we have had for many years, Jay Stevenor, BUS: (208) 344-6900, for sending us this article on frying turkeys this Thanksgiving. Jay Stevenor Agency. As the TV program said, “Let’s be careful out there!”
The article from the StateFarm Learning Center, starts out by saying, “It’s hard to beat the speed of deep-frying a turkey—or the irresistible flavor and juiciness that result. But turkey fryers have the potential to cause fire and serious injury, which is why organizations like Underwriters Laboratories and the National Fire Protection Association advise against using them.” There are some really simple, yet totally necessary safety rules that one must follow while deep frying a turkey. One suggestion is that you don’t use the deep fryer on a back porch, in a garage or in the kitchen. Keep listening to your local news and I bet you will hear where some one was severely burned or where a house burned down because someone did not follow these rules. You can read the rest of the article at 15 Turkey Fryer Safety Tips from the StateFarm Learning Center. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving. Gobble gobble!!
