Time for turkey

Two years ago, we went to celebrate Thanksgiving in France with my in-laws and turkeys are hard to come by. They are expensive in France too and the size of one’s oven also plays an important factor. The ovens in most French homes are small. Sort of like smart cars as a visual.
Growing up one of seven, this classic Norman Rockwell image takes me back to a time when it really was all about the Turkey. I guess in many respects for some folks it still is all about the turkey and the time we share enjoying one another. Is it about time to talk turkey at your table? Oh, just a reminder, say a little grace, give thanks and cherish those that prepared the bountiful feast set before you. If you are the host, then pat yourself on the back and enjoy your day.
