I’m not sure what the rest of the words to this song are….all I know is that Jayna is singing it in her Thanksgiving Program at school next week, it is sung to the tune of “Clementine,” and Jayna only knows one line of the song. And that one line is subsequently in my head ALL of the time!
So, in honor of Mr. Albuquerque the Turkey, I made some cake pops in the shape of turkeys for our Sunday School Thanksgiving Dinner….also known as our Meat and Skeet. We all bring our favorite Thanksgiving Day sides and desserts and gather at our friends Lisa and Jordan’s house to fry up some turkeys, shoot some skeet and visit. It’s always a good time, and a great way to kick off the holiday season.
While we were there, Jayna used the rest room and then promptly told me that “Ms. Lisa’s toilet paper is sooooooo soft!” When she told Ms. Lisa how much she loved her toilet paper, Ms. Lisa let her take home a roll!
And now for my turkeys. At first, I was skeptical, but after they were finished, I decided they really were quite cute!
I started to draw eyes and little pointy beaks on them….but then decided that the beaks looked like smiley faces and they looked kind of dumb. So half of them had faces and half did not. They all got gobblers though! (Made out of little colored chocolate pieces I found at Party City).
The heads were made from the all chocolate M&M’s….they are slightly bigger than regular M&M’s and the whole pack is brown! No more digging through the colored bags! The heads were held on with a dab of melted chocolate.
Tail feathers were made from “Indian Candy Corn” and held on by a dab of melted chocolate. Feet were the ends of pretzel sticks stuck into the melted chocolate as soon as I dipped the balls in chocolate.
They were a little more involved to make, but a terrific hit at the party….they were gone so fast that I didn’t even have a chance to photograph them on the table!!
