My first turkey was a success. I used an oven bag to cook it in and put it breast-side down. I tried a sweet potato recipe with orange juice--not a success. But, thanks to my pressure cooker, I cooked yams in less than 10 minutes and mashed them with butter and a little brown sugar. The cranberry sauce turned out OK. The cranberries had been in the freezer since last year, at least, and the oranges from the supermaket weren't very juicy. (I had to miss the Farmer's Market on Saturday because I was in Denver.)

I had Thanksgiving Dinner with former neighbors who also go to my church. It was a relaxing afternoon with good food.

Now I have to think of creative ways to use 10 lbs. of turkey.
