I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

We ended up hosting this year with both sets of grandparents.  This time, I ended up ordering a smoked turkey from PCC.  All I had to do was heat it up a few hours before dinner.  You can simply order it online on their website.  PCC converted their cooking classroom to turkey pickup room.  The package directions said heat for 2 hours, but actually you need to heat it for 3 hours.  They offer one size to make things easy — 13 – 15 lb. turkey.  IT carved easily and it was moist and juicy.  I was too lazy to save the carcass to make into turkey noodle soup this time.  I actually hate having left overs so I packed a plate for everyone to take home.  I wanted the kitchen cleaned up and ready for fresh new food.  There were a lot to be thankful this year, mostly health of all family members.

Halloween in Issaquah Highlands

Halloween is a special time in Issaquah Highlands.  Lots of neighbors decorate their homes and plenty of candy is available for trick or treating.  There are even random haunted houses within the neighborhood.  Since the homes are close together, it’s easy to get lots of candy in very short period of time.  This neighborhood is also filled with tons of kids so I look forward to seeing adorable costumes this Halloween!  If you are still looking for your costume or decorations, I suggest visiting the party store near Fred Meyer.  They have an amazing selection of costumes.  Be safe and have a happy Halloween!
