Wish Bone

I made a turkey the week after Thanksgiving this year. 

I tried out my new old roasting pan from the thrift shop and I absolutely love it.  No more Turkey baking bags for me. I’ll use my new old roaster, Thank You.

Every time I carve a turkey, I think of my Grandma Dekker’s Thanksgiving. And every time I find the wish bone, I remember being with my cousins as we wrestled it apart.

PJ and John got the honors after dinner tonight.

Here’s the stare-off before the action begins.
