Happppppy Martsgiving!

Marty had a lovely Thanksgiving with his family, and this year was his turn to feed everyone. Marty started cooking the night before and was finally finished just in time for everyone to arrive.

Deciding which recipe is best

It's hard to not get wet when you're washing cranberries

Stirring a witches brew

Chiles are a typical side dish in Marty's Mexican family

The linens get so wrinkly when they haven't been used in a while

Hope there's enough plates and napkins for everyone

Yep, Marty can cook a turkey

Panda is so excited for the guests to arrive

Lady Beatrice is ready to entertain

Eagerly awaiting the mashed potatoes

Glazing the ham

Turkey's done!

With a Thanksgiving success, Marty finally
relaxes and enjoys the company of his family

Mmmmmmmmm Toasty!

A brand new toaster oven came in the mail over the weekend! Marty doesn't have a stove (well he does, but it doesn't function as a stove normally would) and he is regulated to cooking whatever is microwavable. And cereal. Lots and lots of cereal. So a toaster oven vastly increases his dining choices. Marty has been a toasting fool since the toaster oven came in the mail and was excited to shop in the frozen foods aisle.

Marty had a feast of a breakfast this morning of eggs, hash browns, and Eggos!

Toaster oven goodness!

Marty 's microwave is dirty from the explosion of bbq last night.
He was too lazy to clean it when it happened.

Microwaveably delicious!
