A Thankful Table & Our Turkey Recipe :)

(Turkey Recipe Below!)

Thanksgiving is all about the food.... and being so thankful for all we are blessed with!

We can create a beautiful autumn table scape with branches, berries and leaves that may be available to you in your area. But dry West Texas has not allowed us to enjoy many fall leaves. So for this blog I am using faux florals but you can easily substitute what you have to gather from in your yard or countryside! Let the kids help you gather and be apart of the decorating!

I also made a trip to @Walmart and picked up gourds, pumpkins, squash, pomegranate, apples and green grapes for my harvest table.

Here is the easiest turkey recipe! please try it, you won't be disappointed.

Miss Cayce’s Turkey

(Fix it at night and put on before you go to bed)

1-quart water

1-apple whole

1-onion whole

2-3 stalks of celery

Salt and pepper

1 stick of butter

Clean turkey! Don’t forget to
pull out the insides (usually in a plastic bag) and rinse cavity! Leave the
legs hooked together. Place turkey in roasting pan, rub butter all over turkey
and put remainder of butter in cavity, pour in water and place apple, onion,
and celery around turkey, salt and pepper. Cover turkey tightly with lid or
several layers of foil, to be sure it is completely sealed. Turn oven to 500
degrees, place turkey in oven, turn oven off after 1 hour. And the most
important step……DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOOR TIL MORNING!!!!!!!

Delicious Turkey served to our families at Thanksgiving!

(If you have a Convection Oven it will not cook this way, because the oven cools itself!)


Happy Decorating Y'all!

Becky & Kathy :)
