Thanksgiving 2011

What a beautiful day it turned out to be for us!  We headed out around 9:00 a.m. to meet up with the rest of the family at World’s End in Hingham for our annual walk.  The kids and dogs loved it, Midnight and Shadow even retrieved sticks in the ocean for a bit.  Each year we try to take lots of pictures and hope for a Christmas Card.  After spending a couples of hours hiking around we all headed back to our separate homes to grab our side dishes for Thanksgiving Dinner at Dad and Donna’s house.  (they were in charge of the bird and stuffing) So my list consisted of shrimp cocktail, mashed potatoes, cookies and brownies.  This year we decided to make things easy so we could enjoy the holiday visiting instead of cooking.   We purchased Reeser’s fresh yukon gold mashed potatoes from Sysco.  They came in a boil-in-the-bag which we did for like 10 or 15 minutes then shoved them in a BooLoo Bag for 5 hours while we hung out.  At dinner time we cut the bag open and put them in the casserole dish.  I don’t think you can see the steam in the picture, but they were steaming hot! It was so easy, no crowded kitchen and no mess.  They tasted homemade and everyone loved them!  I did peel and cook my own gulf white shrimp, but in our family that is a corner that can’t be cut.  We transported the shrimp in a separate cold Booloo Bag, they were gone as soon as we got there.  Another great holiday with the family and our BooLoo Bags!
