Thought I would start a thread on Turkey day. Feel free to post what you are having, what you will be doing and even what you are thankful for. Food porn is encouraged. Me? Thanksgiving is my favorite meal of the year. For years I acted as cook just to make sure it is done right. After last year eating pressed turkey sitting in hospital bed, Thanksgiving will be all the favorites. Caprese salad, turkey, portabella risotto stuffing (in the bird), mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberries (still havent decided how they will be cooked), roasted garlic asparagus and home made rolls. Desert will be either made by the Princess or store bought. Usually I get a minimum 15 pounder even if it is just us. If we are having friends over, I get the biggest one I can find. Just love turkey leftovers. This years is only 13 pounds. Planning a big weekend. My dive buddy from the UK will be in the states so he is flying down Thursday afternoon. We will eat, probably immediately fall asleep and head to the Keys Friday morning. The Diving Pirate Princess will be with us Friday and drive back to spend the weekend here. We will stay for a few more days of diving and kicking back in the Keys. What will I give thanks for this year? That DD is doing well in her Senior year (academically, athletically and socially) and I am not eating pressed turkey.
