Our Thanksgiving plans ended up changing a bit and it wound up being just me, the boy and the baby. It was okay. The turkey turned out really well, so I'm glad about that. It was my first time cooking a bird by myself. :) I cooked it breast side down for 2 hours and then flipped it for the next hour and a half. There weren't really enough drippings to consistently baste it, so I rubbed butter on the outside for the first 3 hours and basted for the last hour. At 3.5 hours, the bird was at 177 degrees. Since I need it at 180, I cooked it for 15 minutes longer and then let it rest for 20 minutes. It was definitely a tasty bird!
On Black Friday, we got to Target at 7am. It wasn't really as crowded as I thought it'd be. Yes, it was crowded, but we were out of the store by 7:45am, after shopping and paying. We spent around $127, but we saved $153. Go us! I found a 100pc mega blocks set for $10. That was a good find. Afterwards, I took J to work and headed to Joann's. They had this ADORABLE stuffed giraffe. I was holding it, letting Maddie touch it to see if she liked it and some little old lady stole it out of our hands! And it was the last one. I was so sad and M started pouting. I wasn't going to put up a fight about a stuffed animal, but come on, who rips a toy out of a kid's hands.
How'd your Thanksgiving end up? Did you go shopping for Black Friday?
