First Annual Memorial Turkey Shoot
This year's Turkey Shoot was a bittersweet one for me. My trusty sidekick and blunderbuss operator, Grandpapa, passed away in late October - a few days short of his 94th birthday.
To be honest, I was really dreading Turkey Shoot without him. But I wasn't about to get a turkey from anywhere other than Diemand Farm.
So off we went. Except for we went on the Monday before Thanksgiving, not the Sunday. And we didn't eat at the Old Mill, because it happens to be closed on Mondays. Which I am sort of relieved about because I don't think I could have handled it.
We took two cars because it was me, Kimmie, Amanda, Tammy, the FBiL, and Dad and we were on a mission to get turkey. Lots of turkey.
Oh and deviled eggs and turkey sausage and turkey stock and whole chickens and chicken parts and pot pies and lots of other deliciousness.
And deliciousness certainly helped make everything feel better.
So here is to the First Annual Memorial Turkey Shoot 2009 and to many more to come.
