Black Friday

First I want to start off by saying the brine turkey was great. Thanksgiving day not so great. We never start a Holiday meal on time it is so painful. Then after dinner we came home and took a nap so that my daughter could get a tv. We made it to Walmart by 12:00 am got in line and waited for our number to get the 32' tv. My daughter was #4 at 5:00 after getting the tv, we headed for the pj's and picked up 3 pairs it was a mad house. Then in line to check out for 45 minutes. Home by 6:00am a quick nap and then off to the mall and costco. A great day! So here we are at home mixing drinks and getting ready to watch a movie. All around great day.

How to brine a turkey

Well I have all the ingredients for my brine the onions are sliced and the garlic is crushed, I could not find the dried juniper berries so I will have to do without. I plan to get up tomorrow morning and put the turkey in the brine. This will be the first time we have used a brine on our turkey. I wanted to go out to eat but I lost the vote. So we are eating in and that's why we are plan to brine the turkey. I am knitting dishcloths to give to my family for Christmas just the simple Grandmother's Favorite Dishcloth and if I have time maybe a dishcloth with a design. I am thinking a frog. Tomorrow is my last day of work this week the office is closed Thursday and Friday. On Friday my daughter want to get up very, very early and go to Walmart they have a tv on sale. She wants to arrive at 1:00 am the store opens at 5:oo am! Please send up prayers for me! Happy long Thanksgiving weekend!
