Beer Geek and I have been together for about 17 Thanksgivings. In that time, I think I’ve cooked 4 turkeys. One of those times, I set my oven on fire.
This Thanksgiving prep was not as dramatic, but I’m pretty sure it’s one I won’t forget.
In the end, the turkey fit in the oven and is done now. It may not be the best turkey ever, but at least it amused me. Now I’m gonna head out for a Turkey Trot and then come home and spend the day eating tough bird and drinking good beer with some of my favorite people. I have much to be thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my friends in the blog world! May you find lots to be thankful for today!

That's like one of the best Thanksgiving Day stories ever 🙂 Thanks for the laugh this morning. Glad we are going out for dinner!!
Hahaha! This cracked me up. After hubs and I bought our first house it was our turn to finally host Thanksgiving! Oven caught fire, corner of my antique table snapped off, and a roach flew off the ceiling fan and across the room when were trying to clear the smoke from the over fire.
So you knew darn well I was going to blow up that first picture to see what beer you had in your fridge.Happy Thanksgiving!
Too funny! Glad that the bird cooperated in the end! I have found that it is best to thaw frozed turkeys 2 days in the frig. I am cooking our "church" turkey this morning and will stick our "family" bird in the oven this afternoon. Having some coffee now and then will be heading out for my own Turkey trot – with Sophie.Have a great Thanksgiving!
Sometimes, all you can do is laugh! Happy Thanksgiving!
haha, step 1: have a beer. Step 2: repeat step 1 as many times as necessary. Happy thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving! You've made me very grateful that I'll never have to cook a giant turkey.
This was hysterical! Glad it got cooked. I would have been swearing up a storm. Glad you got all the holiday beer ahead of time. I made two pumpkin pies – wish I could give you one. I like Michael's idea. I am no fan of cooking a big holiday dinner.
Hahah. I had a good laugh. I ordered fried chicken and made the other regular thankgiving sides. 🙂
Glad you made it to Thanksgiving dinner and beer! This one of those stories you couldn't even make up. 🙂
Hilarious! Hope you had a great thanksgiving!
I love your FB status! So funny! I thought you were going to go all domestic and turn that pumpkin into a pie. I would have been conpletely impressed…my pumpkin comes in cans!
How funny! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
