Happy Thanksgiving, all! My family are all coming here for dinner tomorrow, plus there is an informal party later tonight at church, so let the gluttony begin!

We are driving 3 hours this evening to stay w/ my brother-in-law in the Albany, NY area.

Then it's 2.5 hours of more driving tomorrow morning to the feast near the west coast of New England. (Central VT near Lake Champlain)

Happy thanksgiving to you south of the border.

Anyone having deep fried turkey for dinner? Had some last year and it was pretty good.

I get to go to work and suffer through a very busy day with three deadlines tomorrow... all the while dreaming of my mum's mashed potatoes and gravy, and her cheese and broccoli casserole. Boohoo! :(

I'm making cheesecake, cranberry sauce, and deviled eggs to bring with us tomorrow- then James is getting the full dinner at our house on Friday since he swears he's never had anything but dry turkey.

we should be able to get lots of work done tomorrow with no distractions.

We can finalize the invasion plans.

Indeed... and since the day after Boxing Day is Friday, the City decided to shut down that day. So we get Xmas, Boxing Day, and the day after Boxing Day this year. I guess I'll stop whining now...

The key is to attack during the football games, after supper. All American men are slouched on the couch with their pants undone, sedated under the influence of triptophan and beer.

Will THEY be sorry!
Oh! I know! And beer too- between James and the dog they almost made me leave the house, I'm going to have to stock up on Ozium to live there!

the fried turkey party I went to had a home made frier. Parts acquired from teh local mill and fabriacted in teh machine shop. Stainless steel, integrated thermomter, and a few other fancy things.

They probably fried 20 turkeys and chickens that night.

We're walking around the corner to have turkey with my mom tonight. Then tomorrow we're spending the day at Sea World. We're all sports-challenged, so we don't do the football thing.

We have deep-fried quite a few turkeys. They are so good, and so different from roasted turkey. We inject ours with hot wing sauce, and coat it inside and out with Cajun seasoning.

This year, along with the stuffed turkey, I'm cooking an additional turkey breast. The refrigerators are full, and I have the extra one stored outside on the screened porch. I hope it doesn't REFREEZE!

I get to fly out of Hartsfield at noon on T-Day for Milwaukee and I'll be flying back @ 9 am on Sunday. According to Super Amputee Cat's Cyburbia Weather Page it should only be 9 degrees cooler - yeah right!

On a professional note I think I might check out the new addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum and study for finals while I'm up there.

shout out to all the turkey friers out there!
Happy Thanksgiving y'all!

You bet your sweet Maple Leaf branded rear-end I'll be eating fried turkey -with injected cajun sauce. I drove 9.5 hours to my Mom and Dad's for the fried turkey and what is sure to be the dinner to end all dinners. I'll post what I had to eat, once I awake from the food induced coma I plan to put myself into.
