Happy Thanksgiving 2005I do love a sale and at 27 cents a pound I just had to get an extra. Don't feel sorry for the extra bird--he'll only spend a few weeks in there alone. Just enough time for me to recover from that first feast.
My apologies to any vegetarians out there--seeing two dismembered birds might be disturbing. To the rest of us it just makes us hungry. Mmmmm.
This picture commemorates the end of a different bird.
Last weekend my girlfriend and I baked a 4 pound "roaster" chicken and had a candlelit dinner complete with a nice Reisling. My favorite vintage, slightly sweet and fruity but not too sweet. I did a post on this Reisling last month.
In two hours we'll be off wandering into the NC mountains in search of a welcoming hearth along with one of Renée's sons. I hope y'all have a safe haven in which to enjoy this holiday as well.
Don't forget that turkey has high levels of tryptophan. That amino acid can really make you sleepy so remember: don't eat and drive! Maybe there should be an organization against turkey driving? LOL
