Deep Fat Fried Turkey and Sweet Potatoes

We had a fun day on Friday,
which was our Thanksgiving.
More company invaded us.
Sometimes the cousins tended each other.
Jeff and Steve doctored the turkey with
a delicious mesquite sauce.
Then Ben dropped it in a vat of boiling oil.
We have to sacrifice gravy
in exchange for the best meat ever.
This year we added fried sweet potatoes.
Chris joined us. He brought PIE.
Justin found a new admirer.
Two little ones had the first bites.
Then the bigger cousins feasted.
The kids played while the adults ate.
But they helped clean up.

  1. Sounds like it was a successful Thanksgiving. A fried Turkey and sweet potato fries?! Don't be surprised if I randomly show up at your house for Thanksgiving next year because that food sounds amazing! I might have to steal those ideas. :)
