Casa Flusche was excited to learn that the USS Lincoln would be making a four day port call here in Bahrain. The reason we were so excited was because that meant that two good friends of ours would be here for an early Thanksgiving! Our friends Gabe Tonozzi & Matt McKerring are shooters on the USS Lincoln and it was wonderful getting to spend some time here with them.

FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD!
When all was said and done over 40 people endulged in all the deliciousness that reminded us of Fall in the States. The whole squadron was invited and all the shooters from the ship attended. Paul and I smoked an eighteen pound turkey and oven roasted three turkey breasts totaling a whopping 33 pounds of turkey. All the sides and desserts were provided by members of our squadron. The guests were asked to bring a dish that reminded them of Thanksgiving "back home". Amazingly we didn't have doubles of anything! Everything looked delicious and tasted out of this world! Nobody left hungry and the boys from the Lincoln had a home-cooked feast!
