Yes I did eat a turkey leg with my hands. There are pictures.
Thanksgiving in February so far is an unqualified success: four guests, one giant bird (20 lbs), and an endless series of Yum Yum Yums even though the stuffing was out of a box. Our guests brought four desserts and a side dish, so the table was a bit better rounded than I expected. Cathy is now asleep on the couch, ookla is teaching shadowdaddy and Jon how to play Ricochet Robots, and fruity_goodness and I are cleaning up the wreckage. Yay! Maybe we'll start doing this on a regular basis and call it a Quarterly Feed - just like the ones Grandma used to take me to at the Grange.
