Christmas Pot Luck Dinner

The tradition continues with the Park providing Turkeys and Ham for dinner and our park guests providing all the sides, and it was wonderful. Plenty of food, wonderful guests and a beautiful day! Our kitchen crew did a fantastic job of roasting and deep frying 5 turkeys which had been in a wonderful brine for over 30 hours and provided the most juicy and tender turkeys, also a wonderful baked ham. We had a nice crowd of over 30 people and every side dish you could imagine, a wonderful dinner!

Beautiful Day with some roses still in bloom!

Leftover Thanksgiving Dinner

Nothing better than leftover Thanksgiving Dinner

We had a nice crowd of about 25 people in the Clubhouse for a wonderful leftover dinner...we had plenty of leftover Turkey and Ham and all the fixins for a wonderful meal. Jessica spent the afternoon warming up all the leftovers and putting out a scrumptious buffet for dinner!

Thanks to Jessica and Steven and Bobbie & Jim for a great dinner and it was wonderful to see Spud and Sarah join us for the winter!

Nice crowd!

Finally caught Jessica by the oven...

We are already planning a similar feast for Christmas, we have the Turkeys already bought and a nice Ham, just need a little more oil for the deep fryers as we are going to deep fry 3 and oven roast 2 and smoke the ham. Make plans to be here for Christmas, reservations are available.

Thanksgiving Pot Luck Dinner

We had a huge crowd for Thanksgiving Dinner in the Clubhouse!

Over 60 people joined us this year for a wonderful Pot Luck Thanksgiving Dinner. The RV park supplies the Turkeys and Ham and Gravy, with our kitchen crew doing a fantastic job of cooking the turkeys - we had 2 deep fried and 2 oven roasted and smoked ham. Our guests provided virtually every traditional side dish, dressing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, vegetables, salad and plenty of pies for dessert!

We need to Thank Jessica and Stephen for their great effort and fantastic food (I apologize for not getting pictures of Jessica she was too busy and fast in the kitchen to catch)! Thanks Bobbie and Jim for setting up the tables and decorations and lending a hand in the kitchen. Also Thank Vickie and Bill Talley the park owners for supplying the Turkeys, Ham and Kitchen Crew and wonderful park for us to entertain our guests!

Our kitchen crew started on Saturday prepping the turkeys!

Stephen and Jessica made a very tasty brine and the turkeys rested overnight in the brine!

The ham spent a few hours in the smoker!

Bobbie and Big Jim had all the tables ready for the crowd!

The crowd arrived!

Big Jim creating the wind block to keep the deep fryers going!

Deep Frying the Turkeys!

The deep Fried Turkeys turned out great as well as the oven roasted! Very Juicy, the brine did the trick on both the deep fried and oven roasted!

Time to carve the turkeys!

The food line was long and full!

One of our Marine Residents asked if they could bring a few Marines from the base who just returned from overseas and did not have time to get home, of course we welcomed them and thanked them for their service!

If you missed it or did not get enough, Saturday Dinner in the Clubhouse is leftovers, more desserts are always nice, but should have plenty of everything!

Still waiting for a few winter friends, plenty of activities on the calendar, come on down!
