Happy Thanksgiving!

Last years Turkey before being deep fried!
We're super busy this week with family and friends so not sure I'll find the time to post.

In the spirit of Turkey Day I thought I'd share with you a short Thanksgiving poem my sister wrote when she was little....I have always loved it to this day!

There once was a turkey named Guy,
Whose biggest fear was to die.
Thanksgiving came a comin'
So Guy went a runnin'
And on Thanksgiving we only had pie.


Enjoy the holiday! Be back soon!

LOL. By the way---the pic of your turkey ready for frying last year got me to thinkin'...

Some years back, people started deep frying turkeys on Thanksgiving. I was appalled. I thought it was a perfectly good waste of good turkey meat. I reasoned that it MUST be bad for you, and it HAD to be greasy. I figured it was a fad and would go the way of the leisure suit in good time.

Then, of course, someone brought a fried bird to our Thanksgiving office party and I tried it. DAMN! I was wrong about everything, as usual. It was not greasy. It was perfectly cooked. The flavor was incredible.

Have a great week!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I got all ambitious and decided to make vichyssoise instead of mashed potatoes. Was up until 1am pressing my potatoes through a wire sieve. I fear i do not have enough leeks and that I have started the process too early.....still have 6 more sides to make and a bird in the basement waiting for brining.....I am strangely excited. Husband is skeptical, children are already requesting chicken nuggets. Why must I always reinvent Thanksgiving???
