I cannot even begin to tell you how good this Thanksgiving meal was and how much it was appreciated. It was pouring rain and our refrigerator had broken the day before so even though we planned on attending the declared special event meal day for DoD, Retired and Military personnel- it was even more advantageous because of our recent household fridge issue.
Even from the beginning, getting through the gate was enjoyable, the gate guards were friendly and helpful with directions to the Trident building and had a great sense of humor that was entertaining for a torrential downpour turkey day!
When we walked into The Trident Inn the first thing we saw was this gorgeous ice sculpture in the shape of a large fish! That was where the personnel directed us to the self service line (the quicker line) where there was turkey, ham, roast beef (oh my gosh the roast beef!) and all the trimmings. I was most impressed with the sweet potatoes – they were outstanding! It takes real skill to make sweet potatoes with the right amount of spice when you are cooking for masses of people.
The desserts were to die for and the running chocolate fountain would have made Willy Wonka jealous!
The icing on the cake for me were the HUGE crab legs. I had been anticipating these all week and they were even better than I thought they would be!
Even the coffee bar was outstanding with Starbucks coffee and different shots of flavored creamers!
The atmosphere was relaxing and people seemed to really enjoy the food and brought family and friends. It was great to see military past, present and current DoD come together for an exquisite meal. I am just a blogger, PSNS spouse and mom… but I really commend the Trident Inn for a job well done.
THANK YOU for the great price and quality of the meal, it made it a great day for all that attended.
PS) We would love more Special Event Days so keep us posted if there are more for DoD workers and families!
