Thanksgiving in North Carolina

On Thanksgiving we motored most of the day from Oriental to Beaufort in North Carolina, on the Intracoastal Waterway.  The Force 10 oven aboard Bristol Rose is petite although perfectly in scale on a 43ft sail boat.  While Thanksgiving is all about the turkey, we scaled down appropriately and cooked a Cornish hen with all the trimmings.  Our bountious meal included pecan pie - the best store-bought pie we've had in ages.  Happy Thanksgiving!
