No Haste or Waste.

Our Location today is Tecumseh, Ontario, Canada.

The combination of fresh air and of course the turkey that we ate at our Early Thanksgiving Day family meal that we had yesterday were surely the reason we slept so soundly last night. Even better we both slept in until after 8:30 this morning.

After watching the Weather Channel while we had breakfast we again headed off to the computers. I was way behind and had to catch up on reading blogs that I’d missed yesterday. 
In this picture not all the food had arrived yet.
Everyone had Doggie Bags.
When we have family meals together like we did everyone takes Doggie Bags home of an assortment of the different foods and deserts that were served. Since Melissa is going through the same thing next weekend with her family she didn’t have the time to clean up the carcass for other meals so she offered it to Kathy knowing it wouldn’t go to waste. 
Even this table had leftovers.
As soon as Kathy was finished on the computer this morning she immediately started stripping the bones. She sent me over to the Metro grocery store for a few supplies that she didn’t have in the pantry. By the time I returned she was boiling the bones to make turkey stock to be used for soup and was half way through putting together a Turkey Pot Pie. With the leftover dough from the pie she also made Pecan Tarts. 

We had a light lunch and had finished eating before the tarts and the pie were ready to come out of the oven. Kathy then strained the stock and started to make homemade Turkey noodle soup. She also showed me a plate covered in the fridge of more turkey she had recovered. Guess what we’ll be eating this week?
While Kathy had been busy making her magic in the kitchen I had spread my tarp in the living room and was once again working on pieces for the cart I’m making for the trailer. I sanded the door that I’d put together the other day as well as adding the holes for the door pull. Since we are also adding a book rack to the back side of the cart I needed to drill holes for the fasteners that will lock it all together but keeping them hidden from sight. Finding the hardware for the project was what took most of my time today as well as cleaning up.
Door for the trailer cart.
For supper we got to enjoy each a piece of the Turkey Pot Pie that had been taken out of the oven shortly after lunch and it was still piping hot when we cut into it. The half dozen pecan tarts that Kathy had made from the leftover dough just seemed to disappear. 

After the supper dishes were finished we went to pay our condolences to our dear friend Vera as she lost her 90 years young sister this weekend. While at the Funeral Home Kathy got to meet people she used to work with and she was introduced to the young woman who took over her job. The woman was amazed at how organized Kathy had left everything in the office. She also told us that Vera had showed her our blog and she and her husband now follow it daily. 
Hopefully the weather won’t be as windy tomorrow so we can get more of our chores done before we hit the road in 81 days. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
