This Thanksgiving holiday we are outside of Whitsett, Texas, gate guarding for the oil wells. This will be the first time since we’ve been fulltime RVing that we will be by ourselves. The last six years we’ve been at an Escapee RV Club park in Florida, Alabama, Texas, New Mexico or Arizona with other members or parked somewhere with friends. Sharing a table with others has been nice and enjoyable, but we like own cooking and enjoy leftovers more than the original meal.
This year we knew we’d be on the ranch by ourselves, so we planned for a full-blown turkey dinner “with all the fixins”, as they say. Then we found out one of the ranch owners was going to bring a complete dinner for each of the four gate guard couples. Humm….but we want leftovers….so decided to go ahead and cook anyway.
At noon the ranch owner delivered our turkey dinner with a plate of five desserts and wonderful rolls. We sampled everything and boy can his wife cook!!!
I found a Lil Butterball weighing nine pounds at H.E.B Grocery that was a perfect size for the oven. Happily I had the convection oven to also cook the yeast rolls, asparagus/bean casserole, stuffing, candied yams and pumpkin pie. Cooking a full turkey dinner took me seven hours of prepping Wednesday night. Jim stuffed the turkey and put it into the oven while I was asleep. Together everything came out grand! Everything was delicious! Just shows you can cook any meal in an RV’s three foot of counter top space.
We invited Curtis, one of the production crew, to
eat with us. Curtis stops by every day to chat with us. It was funny, Curtis is always sitting in his truck when he comes to visit and we had never seen him out of his truck….till today... we were surprised. He is a tall glass of water…he’s a good six four LOL!!!
It was a nice, nice Thanksgiving Day dinner. One we thoroughly enjoyed! I hope you had an joyous holiday as well with someone who loves you.
Remember, you are loved
