Day By Day

  • Don’t forget the neck cavity stuffing. It’s not worth it on a chicken, but when Dad made the turkey that chunk under the brown parchment-like skin was pretty tasty. Crunchy crouton top with a chewy center, yum.

    (snicker) NO ONE is on holiday when it’s holiday.
    Now get up off yer ass and help Sam cook.
    Unless you want her to burn down the house.
    (BTW, where are the fire extinguishers -yes, plural – somewhere near, but not in, the danger zone)

      Fireboy Systems Or Halon?

        Overhead cascade ?

        Zar Belk!

    Zed is usually fairly prudent. I wonder that he’s willing to entertain the notion of allowing Sam to launch another intercontinental ballistic frozen turkey into orbit.

  • Huh, fresh Impeachment Party news, few hours old. Remember how Republicans were begging last week for the release of the secret transcript of an OMB official’s testimony in Schiff’s basement play room, saying the real reason for the Ukraine aid hold would blow the Dems’ show trial apart?

    OMB Official: Ukraine Aid Held Up Because Other Countries Weren’t Giving

    Maybe SanFranNan will get her wish to have all this impeachment stuff done by Christmas. 😉

    T Day plans got side lined. Too short a period to prep the fryer. Gonna cheat and do T Breasts in my countertop deep fryer seasoned coon-ass style.

    • WayneM

      The first time I heard the expression coon-ass, I wondered… Luckily, the guy who used it saw my puzzled expression and explained. lol

      • interventor

        Coon ass cajuns are proud of being called that.

    Thanksgiving Poem

    May your stuffing be tasty,
    May your turkey be plump,
    May your potatoes and gravy
    have nary a lump,
    May your yams be delicious
    and your pies take the prize,
    and may your Thanksgiving dinner
    stay off your thighs!

  • Badger

    @Alex J – Excellent; I’m stealin’ some o’ that.

  • DDS

    Saw a T-shirt once that had the picture of a scowling Granny Clampett looking lady with the caption, “This is the last time I spend all day shoving bread crumbs up a dead turkey’s behind!”

    • Patrick Culver

      Thanks. I shot water out of my nose.

  • MAJ Arkay

    Cooking the cornbread dressing today, along with the pumpkin mousse (we don’t like pumpkin pie). Chunking the vegetables for roasting tomorrow. Spousal Unit will be frying the chicken and turkey legs in the Big Easy infrared fryer tomorrow, while Sister makes the Waldorf salad and I make the gravy.

    No need to go all out when there’s only six of us.

  • Just Joe

    I’d like a thigh please.

  • Pamela

    Sam…Be Thankful you did NOT have to pluck and clean out a freshly killed bird.
    That is truly gross.

    • JTC

      But that would well and truly be a man-job so better for her. And I’d actually rather dress a big ol’ wild Tom than a deer, it’s been a while but not that bad and keeps the connection with Ma Nature going. 🙂

      • Pamela

        JT~ When I was 13, some of the Uncles and cousins came back from hunting, tossed the turkeys, ducks, geese and pheasants on the kitchen table while we were making pies. I was picked to clean the birds. Arrggh. My Great-Aunt of 90 showed me how.

        • JTC

          Yeah, that’ll make you wanna pluck & gut ol’ Ma Nature herself.

          Answer to that of course is to be on the huntin’ not cookin’ crew.

  • Looking forward to the launch!

    • Unless Sam figured out the complete defrost concept.

  • Kafiroon

    That definitely does Not look like any pilgrim stuffing that turkey.
    Even if the local Indians did have to bring it.
    Many are thinking about the ‘Death To America’ whiners that, again, are being instructed to Whine at us about anything that has a wild hair up their butt.
    So considering all they fuss about, they are more like Puritans.
    They are more butt hurt though. So Neo-Puritans.
    (Thought from WND article)
