Happy Thanksgiving! (Right now it's 1:04 AM EST so I guess this is valid)
I can taste the apple pie now as I type! Can't wait!
Have a good one everybody. After Thanksgiving and Christmas it's all about watching your diet until next year; eat up while you still can! ;)

Just to get everyone involved here...
What does Thanksgiving mean to YOU?

|What does Thanksgiving mean to YOU? |
Absolutely nothing. It's a festival celebrated by a tiny fraction of the world's massive population.

At this point in my life it means a day off to spend with my extended family and reminisce about the same things we always reminisce about. For that, I am thankful. :)

For me it's about getting together with family and friends, enjoying a good meal and hoping that the same faces are around the table next year, and remembering the faces that aren't there.

Happy turkey day!

I have to try Turducken some day.

Definitely wouldn't want to shorten "Turducken" too much.

Thanksgiving food is becoming more experimental. Wife mentioned trying a tur(key)-duck-(chick)en combination. I never heard of it until last year.
She threatened to buy us a scary turkey fryer device which, I think, is illegal for export to Iran or N. Korea. Prudently, she picked up a ready-made fried turkey from a local supermarket... it's like a regular turkey but a lot crisper and less greasy.
The supermarket says they make them all year but you have to order ahead a few days.

The fried turkeys are actually extremely good; way better than the regularly cooked ones.
We made some last year for the first time and everyone seemed to love them. Didn't do it this year, but I'm thinking we'll do it next!
Anyway, I hope everyone had a great day with your families; I know I did!

Only problem with our supermarket fried turkey was that the meat was a little stringy. Anyone know whether that is common?
Frying makes the drumsticks and wings much better to gnaw on.

Dont let the Scots hear about this or they'll be making them dipped in chocolate and using lard for the frying ..having previosuly stuffed them with the insides of a cow and 200 cigarettes ..

For me was just a free day
