You can’t see it in the image, but Linus and Sally’s pool is just to the left.
Linus is making his famous thanksgiving table talk.
If you’re in the sunny south, in the deep part of the US sunbelt, you may have the weather to still be enjoying your pool during late November. Here’s some fun tips on how to incorporate your swimming pool into your thanksgiving day plans, and surprise your guests with an outdoor thanksgiving dinner by the pool.
1. Deep Frying a turkey outdoors. Always outdoors – don’t try this inside! Deep frying a whole, defrosted turkey produces the most scrumptious result, but it can come with some real safety hazards. Here’s a good lens into how to deep fry a turkey safely.
2. Setting an outdoor table. Candles are a nice touch at any thanksgiving table, just be sure to use deep votives or hurricane glass to keep the wind out. A natural looking table with wood, acorns, indian corn, fall leaves and pine cones brings the outdoors into the celebration. Just make sure items are heavy enough to stay secure in high winds.
3. Pool Games. Get the kids (and adults) hungry before your thanksgiving feast with a rousing game of pool volleyball, marco polo or sharks & minnows. How about a pool basketball game – with a frozen turkey. What better way to thaw the bird? Sabrina did a post recently on some great swimming pool games to get your family and friends off the couch and into the pool!
But remember, no swimming for 30 minutes after eating!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday, America! We have a lot to be thankful for, especially if you have a swimming pool!
