Happy Thanksgiving

I’m working on Thanksgiving, so we aren’t really doing anything.  However, my job sent me home with a turkey so we decided to see if we could cook it on the woodstove.


We cook on it a lot, so it is not very clean and pretty.  But it did cook the turkey.  Boiled away all day and came out quite tasty, for turkey.  We just threw in some salt, onions and garlic and left it alone.


Just another chance to work on my wood stove cooking skills!
