    Happy Thanksgiving to you too, Chrose! I don't have any fine poetry to garnish the festivities with, but a simple wish for a wonderful holiday with family and friends.

    'Twas the night of Thanksgiving, But I just couldn't sleep
    I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.
    The leftovers beckoned The dark meat and white
    But I fought the temptation With all of my might.

    Tossing and turning with anticipation
    The thought of a snack became infatuation.
    So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
    And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.

    I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
    Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.
    I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
    'Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

    I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky
    With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
    But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees....
    Happy eating to all Pass the cranberries, please.


    May your stuffing be tasty,
    May your turkey be plump.
    May your potatoes 'n gravy
    Have nary a lump,
    May your yams be delicious
    May your pies take the prize,
    May your Thanksgiving dinner
    Stay off of your thighs.
    [COLOR=#Sienna]HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!

    Let's eat the turkey out of a big brown shoe? Oh my! That is tempting.

    Nice poems, guys!

    I hate to sound ordinary, but I ate it off a plate once again. Maybe next year I'll do the shoe.

    Thanksgiving is the BEST!! I hope you all had a fine day.

    Kuan, my son would have loved to have dinner with you! He likes the Turkey, but LOVES the Duck!!!

    I brined the turkey this year with honey and spices. The Turkey was excellent however I discovered that the brine would leach a bit and fill the cavity. I didn't realize this and used that liquid for my gravy and oyyy!!!!!was it salty!!! Luckily the turkey didn't need any wetting so all worked out.

    And just so's ya know the "poem" was actually part of Adams Sandlers Turkey song.
    Now on to Christmas and more feasting! :chef: :D :bounce:

    We had a wonderful dinner at my SIL's. My BIL brined the bird for about 6 hours. He used my All-Clad roaster with rack and it came out delicious. Only small problem was that his oven apparently is uneven; one side (the side with the thermometer) was done, but the other side was a bit pink at the bone. No problem; we gently nuked the pieces and they were fine. After several really dry turkeys, this one was a winner and everyone made there delight known. My job was to bring green beans, so I bought a couple of pounds of what looked like nice ones. However, when I cooked them in the microwave (which is usually a sure-fire success) they proved to be tough. Was I peeved! We had enough other stuff to eat, so it was fine. Nice to see the family, too.

    My next holiday endeavor is latkes for about 65 people on December 10. Bring on the sour cream! :lips:
