Turkey Bake (pic heavy)

So I have been a wee bit busy over the last week or so and here is an account of the baking.

Remember to gather ALL the tools required before baking. Mise en Place people!

I needed to make some plain bread for Stuffing/dressing.

Well not really plain.

Time to shape.

Then into the fridge for an overnight proof. Meanwhile I can make the cranberry sauce, it is always better after it sits for a couple days.

The next moring, time to bake.


Then the sainted wife calls and asks if I can make a cake for Thanksgiving? Who am I to deny her, so more Mise en Place was in order.

Cakes were baked.

And assembled.

and then dinner was served.

Well I hope everyone had a safe and happy Giving of Thanks dinner.

and to all…..

Happy Xmas, Hanukkah, or whatever you celebrate.

Looks great.

Full Sail is good stuff, too.  Just returning from the States, that was the one thing I made a point to bring back with me: Oregon beer.

I certainly do miss Oregon. We only lived there for a few years, I would love to move back. If you can get over the rain it is a beautiful state. Wonderful nature and fantastic fishing. And the beer scene is amazing. Now there is a big movement toward hard apple cider in the Gorge areas, I hope Perry get made as well, love some perry cider.

Welcome back Floyd

That cake is beautimous and wonderous to behold and your Thanksgiving Feast looks great.

I have a Construction Tool and Supply hat that has a catchy tag line on the side that goes well with the caption on your beer.

Happy Baking
