Happy Thanksgiving

Ah yes. It's spring. Time to bust out the short skirts, put on a diamond penguin necklace* (wha?),
and of course, have Thanksgiving dinner. Yes, Thanksgiving dinner. This Sunday come on by, I will be making a full blown Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings. Why? Let's just say that a few months ago O.G. and I got in a huge fight which left me with a giant frozen turkey in my freezer. Don't ask.

Anyway, that thing is taking up half the freezer and I want it outta there. Therefore, this Sunday we will be having turkey, stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, O.G.'s famous Gulliver's corn, veggies, rolls, and of course - pumpkin pie. Yes it will be 80 degrees, but we must give thanks. Thanks - for nothing.

To learn, "How to brine a turkey" - go HERE.

*my mom gave me that penguin necklace for Mother's Day. Why - I don't know. I don't love penguins, but the thought of an all diamond penguin necklace even existing makes me laugh.

Do you know where your mom got the penguin necklace? My friend is a penguin fanatic.

Of course your blog didn't show up in my reader when I sent that email. Damn Google Reader. Now I get it. Sort of.

Brining is good, but deep frying rocks--and it's quick too.

Brining = teh yum, although my mom insist it makes no difference, everyone came up to me after my first Tgiving dinner and said please, please, make this every year.

That's not a short skirt unless you're Amish. Show some leg, girl!

A co-worker brined her turkey last year at her daughter's urging. Said it was the worst thing she ever cooked. I think she got some kit thing at Williams Sonoma or something. I'm sure done right it's good but I'll stick to my old fashioned sure bet.

those 'guin sparkly rocks.
