Went with burgs for the feast for 11 people: 2008 Dom. Rossignole Volnay and 2010 Roux Pere & Fils Pouilly-Fuisse. One turkey breast was cooked in a crock pot and a 17 lb whole bird was smoked over oak, 200-220 deg. F. for 5 1/2 hours. Sides were pretty traditional - sage dressing, whole cranberries, etc. - but daughter's spud & leek casserole blew everyone away! Desserts included a chocolate pecan pie, and that's as far a I got.

The wines were OUTSTANDING! (hic, burp)

Wishing for a wee dram o' malt, but will wait for D's return later tonight (we drove separately).... don't like to get juiced-up while she's on the road, in case a cavalry charge to the rescue is called for.

i've put on another 2 pounds just reading this. Sounds fabuloso. Glad for it to get here and glad to see it gone. WW
