We had a wonderful potluck turkey dinner with 25 friends. There was even pumpkin pie! Everyone brought a part of the whole, and the result was magnificent.
We usually have an even split in numbers between Aussies and Canucks for the event, and it always thrills me to see the Australian reaction to a sweet pumpkin dish (savory is how pumpkin is done here). A whole turkey is difficult and expensive to get here at this time of year (they come out for Christmas). So I usually end up buying a turkey breast roast and legs/thighs separately and roast in the whole lot together. Our guest list this year exceeded the space our unit could handle, so we moved the event to the hall at our church. This was good not only from the space perspective, but it hit 30oC today, and it was nice to have an air conditioned space. We have SO much to be thankful for, this and every year. Next year in Mackay!
