Every two years when the Black Friday Iowa/Nebraska football game is in Iowa City, the family descends and we celebrate with turkey(s). This year we had about 15 in attendance and prepared a fried turkey in the front yard and Ben smoked a turkey again. Two birds plus a lot of sides rounded out the delicious meal.
The day after Thanksgiving Jess and I and our dads braved the cold (it actually wasn’t too bad this year) to attend the Iowa-Nebraska game, and I have to say, that the outcome of the game was lovely. We then came home for some Lasagna to warm us up, and some cake to celebrate National Cake Day (our family’s made-up holiday). Check the plethora of photos (and turkey fry video) below.
