Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade… sorta… I have the tv on without the sound and look up once in a while.

Came across this at Mashable.

They used to just let the balloons go at the end of the parade!

Shoot… The show just ended and I missed the Rockettes.

Cooking your Turkey

This woman has the right idea:

“Just put the turkey in the fucking oven.”

Again, the hat tip goes to Gerard.

Really, as someone that has cooked the turkey for family gatherings for over 20 years, it won’t turn out perfect and, because it’s turkey, it will taste like cardboard. The drinks are the key to the whole thing. We are having a smoked turkey. To go with that we are going to have afternoon cocktails (during the Cowboy game) that will include cranberry margaritas. I’m also going to do a leg of lamb, so we’ll also have red wine and tasty beer with dinner. The key to a good Thanksgiving dinner is managing your guest’s alcohol consumption.

Update for 2014: We are probably going to have a more conventional Thanksgiving menu this year. Last year’s was great, but we do have to mix things up a little. No mashed potatoes though. I’m going to grill slices of polenta instead.

Now I’m going to go find the Chinese food episode from Bob Newhart.

Bob did a really good job of managing his property. His stuff is not available for free.

It’s Time…

To start thinking about apple pie…

Mary-Louise Parker Apple Pie

That would be an interesting outfit to serve dessert on Thanksgiving…
