So Thankful

Nothing Else Matters

Today I cooked my first turkey in many years
and shared a wonderful dinner with my daughter
and her 2 girls and her husband and my sister.

I am staying at the Heaven House and in this kitchen
there are 2 ovens. One is a full chefs range
the other is just a convection oven.

My daughter made all the vegetables except the
sweet potatoes with marshmallows.. I made those.

I used the large oven for the turkey which was
fantastic. The smaller over to reheat the vegetables
and wonderful dinner rolls which my sister brought.

I turned off the oven to put the rolls in since the vegetables
were heated and placed in the rolls..

As it turns out.. I did turn off the oven however, I turned the
knob over to BROIL!!!.. I almost burned the potatoes which had
shredded cheese on top.. BURNED !!!

We took out the dishes of vegetables and then the rolls almost caught
fire totally BURNED.. Good thing I had another pack of them 😀

I left in the sweet potatoes with marshmallows..

My granddaughter said she smelled something burning..
WOW.. she sure did the marshmallows were cremated.. totally
burned to where they were ashes.. the smoke filled the
house I had to open the sliding doors to the patio..

It took all this time to realize I had the BROILER ON DUHHHHH!!!

So you see I have so much to be thankful for today the dinner
came out wonderful and we had so many laughs at my mistakes
and not knowing where things were in this kitchen and how to
operate the ovens..

We sat down to this wonderful table of good food and most of all
good family time.

Photo taken with my daughters Blackberry..

Thank you for reading and I do hope your holiday
dinner was a lot smoother than mine was.

A day to remember for sure.

with love,
Fatimah
