Thanksgiving at Roper Lake

We have just been relaxing here at Lake Roper, taking walks, reading, little working for Joe. Have just been in town a few times for supplies. Last time we were here everything was very green. Here we actually have a little of the fall colors.

This is the first Thanksgiving it has just been the two of us. Though we will see our boys on Friday at Parker.
I looked up slow cooker recipes for turkey as we had purchased a small turkey breast. I complied a few, using wine and a little chicken stock and some vegetables and basting the turkey with olive oil and herbs.
It really came out tender and moist as the blogs I read mentioned. We also had mashed red potatoes with sour cream and cream cheese added and some peas with thyme added. Very yummy. Also had some corn bread I had bought at the store and with a little wine, had a very good Thanksgiving meal. We are very thankful that we have been able to live this new life style. The first six months have been awesome. We have really seen some great places. THese months have also been pretty packed full and we have covered a lot of territory as we knew we would. We will be spending a month or maybe longer in Southern California and then spending the rest of the winter in Arizona at a slower pace.
