We just couldn't wait!
Had a bunch of friends and family over for the game. My daughter is home from college and is going to dads house for turkey day and they do not make a traditional Thanksgiving meal so I decided we were going to have a "Fakesgiving" at my house.
I found a fresh bird and threw together a brine (I will post my brine recipe)
We invited all our friends over that we would not be seeing and feasted.
Our guests were delighted by the gathering and the dinner
We got to have all the traditional favorites and none of the stress
We will be doing this again
