So Turkey dinner was supposed to begin at approximately 5PM, when the entire clan would gather at the lake for the feast. We arrived in the early afternoon and there before us lay a tabletop full of cheeses, hummus, bruschetta, candies and a host of other snack items along with the compliment of beverages. By 3:30 it was over for me. The stomach had reached capacity and staring at the food was no longer an option. Dylan and I grabbed the fishing poles landed a few bass and returned an hour or so later as the main course was about to be served. Looking past the main course I noticed a berry cobbler and pumpkin pie, decisions had to be made. I grabbed a few pieces of dark meat, the dryer ones, chewed on them for an hour and allowed for repositioning of the abdominal area, which enabled the berry cobbler to be enjoyed fully. Talk about an abundance of food. 22 people and I promise we could still be eating into the night tonight and we may not finish it off. Walking around the zoo today with the little ones, I understand how the lions must feel when they get a hippo for dinner...What a feast!
