Thanksgiving recapulation.

Good morning!

Wow, we are still breathing. Black Friday and Cyber Monday were both off the charts busy here at Mission Repair. In fact, I heard on the news that this 2014 Black Friday was down in revenue by 13% nationwide. We’ve been in business going on 7 years now, and each Black Friday has been a madhouse, and this one was a 51% increase over Black Friday 2013. Thank you to all of our new customers!

So Black Friday came on the tail of Thanksgiving, which was a bit “nontraditional” at the Arter house this year. I didn’t make a Turkey until Friday evening…we spent Thanksgiving Day down at the Plaza in Kansas City for the big “lighting” of the downtown area which was followed by a street party. Yes, it was fun but truthfully I missed having a home cooked meal ON Thanksgiving. So we moved it to Friday😉

Here’s a shot of my turkey breasts after I carved them off of the turkey. By the way, this is the PROPER way to carve a turkey, let me know if you want to learn more about my techniques!

I plated each breast separately, because one side I injected with some spices that I picked up while I was in Grenada this year, here’s a closeup:

Yes, it was yummy! To top it all off, Thanksgiving is not complete until Grandma Arter makes her world famous pecan tarts.

They are gone now, but with the power of the internet and with the amazing ability to store pictures online forever, I can always visit my blog if I ever need a “fix”. Here’s to the holiday season that is upon us, I hope you stay safe and happy.

I’ll be here at the office for a while, thanks for stopping by!

Take care, Ryan
