Yesterday was nasty outside, but inside was lovely.

Originally I was thinking of just getting a turkey breast, but I found a deal that was too good to pass up at my local supermarket. If I bought $40 worth of groceries (that is not a big deal for me) along with my turkey, the turkey would be only 25 cents per pound.
Hello turkey! So for less than $4 I got a beautiful 15, almost 16 pound bird.
The rest of the meal was equally good.

I decided to go with them because I wanted to make mash potatoes with and without garlic. Meryl and the kids are not big fans of extra garlicky potatoes, but Larry and I had a hankering for them. And here is another shot with one on my plate with a nice bit of gravy on top.

If Meryl ever offers to pick up some chocolate for you do not refuse. She made some excellent choices and introduced us to a new to us candy, sponge.
Then we sat around and chatted until it was time for dessert.

And the best part, I got to have apple tart and pumpkin pie for breakfast today.
