So, this year I had planned on helping my Father in Law cook at his place in CT. He stayed up North this year do to a torn tendon in his knee. After surgery a few months ago, he's stuck here with the rest of us in the snow and slush and is trekking back and forth to physical therapy for the rest of the winter.
Friday night we had made plans to visit Springfield MA and see "Bright Nights" in Forest Park. This is a gigantic Christmas light display that can only be described as AWESOME. I had looked forward to sharing this with Carlie and knew she would be in absolute awe.
But...like all good plans, these were not meant to work out as we had hoped. I ended up with a little medical issue and have been grounded here on Cape Cod for the holidays. I will be having a small and hopefully fast and uneventful surgery tomorrow morning at 8:30am. So my very understanding Father in Law packed up the 13 pound turkey, all the vegetables and a lot of ingredients needed to cook a proper Thanksgiving feast and headed North to Cape Cod to have dinner here with us. For the most part, he and Henri did the cooking. I had made pies Tuesday night, so that was all done. Dinner was delish and my husband is in a turkey coma on the couch as we speak. Happy Thanksgiving to all! I have to go do the dishes.
