    Love the pictures, Mona! I bet they taste good too. Love to see creativity in the kitchen! Looks like a good cruise to go on...

    That is one crazy looking Turkey.
    I had my son and his family with me this year and it was a very special time. Turkey came out perfect, I'm pleased to say.

    Whew. I can't even begin to imagine all the work to produce such gorgeous food. It seems like it would be painful to cut into all that artwork to eat it!

    Wow! That food is too gorgeous to eat! Still I wouldn't mind tucking in!

    I bet they taste as wonderful as they look too. I've never been on a cruise. I hear they are awesome and that you need to expect to gain ten pounds. Unbelievable. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself.

    They are so perfect they don't look real!
    Wow! there are some artistic chef's huh!
    That is one big mama of a turkey though! Never been on a cruise either so I'm really surprised at how much effort they put into it.

    What fun pics!!

    I'm sure it smelled really good too!

    Mona, What a great idea to take a cruise for Thanksgiving! You had better food than we did, that's for sure.

  12. Cyrano // November 30, 2010 at 4:41 PM  

    OHHHH, Mmmmm, Geeeeee!!
    What cool food! I love the turkey with the spider on it.
    Great pics, thanks for sharing!
    Have a fabulous evening,

    Wow Mona, great pictures. It would be worth going on the cruise just for the food.
    Glad you had a good trip.

    Regards

    Ladies, I am so happy you enjoyed these pictures. I don't think we ended up eating THESE turkeys and hams. They were left to decorate the main hall during Thanksgiving Day.

    Too cool! Cruise food is about presentation and great flavor. Thanks, Mona!

    Mona,
    Have you been on another cruise? I didn't get to go this year, but I'm hoping to go next year. Love the pictures. I have some great ones from our cruises. Tell us more about the cruise, what ports? Did you love this one?

    Mona,
    Those pics are amazing. Who knew there were other ways of cooking our traditional turkey dinner? You must have had a fun cruise.

    Joanne, it was a fun cruise, mostly because I had my two little grandchildren. Their parents were able to have some rest while we watched or played with the kids.
