I hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving. Little bro is hosting the festivities here and I have the very easy task of just bringing some wine. I can handle that. I could actually handle the entire meal if I had to, I've cooked a few turkeys over the years, but having a tiny house makes it tough to handle a traditional sit-down dinner like Thanksgiving. And no, I didn't plan it that way. Ahem.
By the way, I love the standard Thanksgiving dinner. I love the leftovers just as much, if not more. I've heard people complain about having to eat turkey for days and days after, but I say bring it on. Turkey sandwiches, turkey and gravy over rice, whatever. So I have to scoff a little bit at these two posts I read last night:
Um, gentlemen? You're not doing it right. That's the only explanation I can come up with. I mean, if you don't like turkey, you don't like turkey. But to lay some blanket statement out there such as turkey sucks or you get a neutral flavored bit of protein is ridiculous. And no, you don't have to chop a turkey into pieces in order to cook it well. Mom doesn't have to do that. Grandma didn't have to do that. Heck, I don't have to do that. Maybe it's a "who are you gonna believe, me or your own lying taste buds?" kind of thing.
I gently scoff here, but it's kind of sad actually. Perhaps the Office of the President-elect will note the tragedy of the turkey challenged and get some help on the way so that every American who wants to can enjoy a properly cooked turkey by this time next year. I'll handle the leftovers
