Really It's Just a Christmas Warm Up!

Well today, its Thanks Giving and I woke up around 1pm as I was up watching James Bond and showing Layla my Toronto pictures and pictures from back home too. So I woke up and walked into the kitchen to find Reb, Giulia and Chris where stuffing the turkey and "lubing it up" as Giulia so nicely put it. Well it was messy rubbing marge on to the turkey. Whilst the girls headed out to the shops to grab some last minute items I was left on turkey watch for the first hour or so. Was fun, spent all that time on my laptop in the kitchen.
So Chris and Layla came back several times to baste it and check up on it so as they were doing that I went out to the quad at uni with Luke to play some catch but with a Canadian Football (It's an American Football really but for the canadian game...and yes there is a difference). I think I also need some practice with the ball before playing properly but I think sometime this week the lads may get together in the quad just to chill and throw it round and stuff and maybe get a mess around game going.
So yeah, came back to watch the turkey again and chill out with Layla and Chris in the kitchen before I made Cauli and Cheese for the meal too.
So when we all got downstairs (Luke, Chris, Reb, Giulia, Louise, John, Layla, Gemma and myself) we had roast spuds, roasted veg, a 17lb turkey, stuffing, soup, loads of bread rolls, cauli and cheese and salad. That was just dinner! We had Ice cream cake, pecan pie and some other cake with a hint of lime, all of which were de-lish with good old custard. After 2 or 3 servings each we still had loads of food left so we all took some home and I mean we still had atleast a third of the food left.
So for my first TG it was good fun. Bit like Christmas as it brought us all together for once. It's actually quite rare getting a big group of us like that to be together for something. So it was nice to chill out and relax with everyone.
Anyway must catch up on my sleep now so keep reading and check out the new pictures in October.
