Another thing I managed to do today, that I couldn't put off any longer, was to wrestle our Thanksgiving turkey and strip the remaining meat before it flew south! It's amazing how long it takes to do this and how much meat there is! I had enough to freeze half for soup next week and I made turkey chili with the other half today. Thanks Audrey for the idea! :) Anyway, I simply used a package of McCormick's chili seasoning, followed the recipe replacing the hamburger meat for turkey. I also added a bit of corn. Done!
The final thing I'd like to share with you, this third day of December, is our Christmas tree. We always put up the tree on Thanksgiving weekend. We have so many special ornaments that we have collected over the years that we want to enjoy them for as long as possible. Almost every evening in December, we sit in front of the tree after dinner and drink hot cocoa with mini marshmallows and a dash of cinnamon. Ah, life is good! Thanks for joining me for another day in December post. Enjoy!
