a brilliant bird



the turkey was, in the end, completely worth the second mortgage we had to take out in order to acquire it. a veritable triumph of a turkey. tender, juicy, really the best one ever. but i'm a bit exhausted, so i'll have to tell stories about it tomorrow.

so for now i'll just say that i'm thankful for such interesting, funny, erudite, well-traveled, intellectual friends and family. it was indeed a privilege to share a bit of my cultural imperialism tradition with them. and i was really impressed with how much they ate. and drank. brilliant.

The turkey looks divine! We did Cornish hens this year instead, since it was just hubs, me, and the two chilluns. Guess who roasted them upside down? *shakes head* I totally was NOT paying attention! Waiting impatiently for more details on your Thanksgiving! Now go take a nap...

Tales of culinary woe are always funny -- especially if you know (as I did beforehand, from seeing this picture) that all turned out extremely WELL.
