Today was an exciting day for those of us who live on the Upper Cape (Cod, that is).
It was Turkey sale day at the Watts Family Farm!
Each year on the first Monday before Thanksgiving, the Watts Family Farm puts their fresh turkeys on sale, starting at 8:00 a.m., but you have to get in line at 7:30 a.m. or you might end up with one of the very last turkeys. Last year, I was just a little late, and they only had a 30 lb. turkey left.
It just barely fit into our oven!
So, this morning, I made sure I was up and out early, but there was still quite a line.
Finally, the line moved and I got closer to the refrigerated truck where the turkeys are given out. This smiling man is waiting for his turkey. No one minds the wait, because it's an opportunity to chat with your neighbors. Sometimes Cape Cod feels like a little French village to moi!
Finally, it was my turn to purchase my turkey. I got a 12 lb. one. Perfect for my petit famille!
Clearly, the Watts Family has a sense of humor!
And now I have a farm fresh turkey!
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
