Even though we're invited to a family Thanksgiving dinner on Monday I wanted to cook a turkey myself. I love the leftovers!!
So Saturday we headed out to find a fresh turkey at College Park.
We also went to College Park because there is a new LCBO that I had checked out a few weeks ago and noted they had a larger selection of gluten free beer.
We love driving home through the city. Photos taken from car.
Not sure what this sign is for. You First?? Dundas Square. It appears to be atop a bus shelter.
So cute peeking out on Queen St. W.
I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of the turkey. He was 4.3 kg so I googled how long to cook him in a convection oven as I always seem to overcook in this oven.
Canadian Living magazine said:
That just seemed too long. I decided this was a better idea.
So stuffed and in the oven at 5:30 aiming for 8PM sit down. Seems when I adjusted the racks (it is a double oven) I moved the oven divider causing the oven to shut off. So an hour later I am back and notice that the oven isn't on!! I quickly get it heated up and took it out at 8PM, used the thermometer and decided it needed fifteen more minutes, perfect!
Sunday YES turkey sandwiches for breakfast! And turkey soup on the stove.
Golf, football, baseball, blogging, bingeing My Kitchen Rules. Leftovers.
Leftovers for dinner watching the Blue Jays WIN!!!
Monday gorgeous Thanksgiving Day!
Out to get some gluten free desserts at the Cheese Boutique.
Tuesday we were on a mission to find some floor lamps. Accomplished! Two floor lamps for living room and one desk lamp for office.
Condo fall decorations.
Wednesday John golfed and I did some shopping.
Gorgeous day on the golf course.
Thursday the car was due for a check-up and since the dealership is in the east end I suggested an outing after. We went to the Guild Sculpture Gardens but there was some sort of work going on and nowhere to park. So home instead.
Friday shopping and lunch with my BFF what could be better?
Finished Last Train to Babylon and was not disappointed.
Abroad which I found quite disturbing and very intense.
Also After Anna a good read.
Also finished The Illegal and loved it. And thrilled it is a local Canadian writer living in Hamilton!! Can so see this as a movie.
Started The language of Flowers a completely different storyline than the above but has my interest.
