Happy Thanksgiving!


We’re having duck for Thanksgiving! Because I’m a idiot!

Also, today is my first anniversary of being an immigrant. That was a happy coincidence, falling over the finish line just in time for Thanksgiving.

I am thankful for many things today. I’m especially thankful for Michelle Obama’s eyebrows. Because, somehow, hundreds of people doing a Google Images search for that rude picture of Michelle are clicking on my snark about her eyebrows instead.

Eat too much turkey, drink too much beer, watch too much foo’ball and get into a fight with Uncle Bill for me, everyone!

We’ll let you know. We eat our big meal of the day in the wee small hours. Go figure.

BTW, I hope you’ve all noticed how a certain mustelid, um, weaseled itself two Thanksgivings?

Just sayin’….

After about the tenth year of not knowing what to do with the pile of leftover turkey, my parents switched to making duck for Thanksgiving. That was just enough bird for my parents, my sister, and me. Also it was good — better than turkey, imho.

Man, I can’t believe you said that duck for Danksgeben is an idiot move. The turkey was good, but at someone else’s house, ergo no leftovers (I love roast turkey; but I really love cold, leftover, roast turkey on homemade potato bread). I think I’m going to arm-twist my Lady into post-Tanksgibbing Chinese BBQ duck.

Also, I’m getting drunk. Whee! ๐Ÿ˜€

happy Thanksgiving all! Good day spent with friends….thankfully, no family in this area! Husband made lobster bisque to take. I took several benedryls so I wouldn’t die. Didn’t have to use my epi-pen, so it was a good day. Oh yeah….the multiple bottles of wine made it a great day! And I’m off tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like Zazzle has a pretty good sale going on for Black Friday. Use the code ZAZZLEFRIDAY at checkout.

Ummm…and sorry to the peeps who just ordered stuff.

Potatoes done before Duck. Dinner will be a while yet. More booze!

Smoked turkey, baked potatoes with all the trimmings, stuffing, two kinds cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, eggnog with rum. uuuurrrp. Then we played a very silly game about academicals seeking tenure, Survival of the Witless.

Happy Thanksgiving, all!

Whoo! We did a Christmas goose once and I remember taking out several full dripping-pans of bubbling-hot goosegrease and pouring it into a can so it didn’t start a conflagration. Don’t know if duck is quite so fatty butI hope it’s as toothsome.

No wonder they say slippery as goose shit.

Oooh! Am I inventing things, or is the smaller Mustelid sporting a smart, new, winter coat up there? Or perhaps things just look different through a pie-induced fog?

Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving!

I love duck. And I’m doing goose for Christmas this year. Heck, I may do goose two or three times for Christmas this year.

I’ve been told goose grease is amazing stuff, and I’m looking to fill a Fry Daddy with the stuff.

Ol’ Stoaty has her winter coat, Mrs Hill.

Heaven knows why, it’s not turned cold here, yet. Wet, very wet… but not cold.

And yes, must say, RR, goose does seem appealing. Last night’s duck was lovely ๐Ÿ™‚

Funny thing. We went to the market, and there was a man demonstrating pan-frying duck slices. They were *tasty*. Expensive, but tasty.

He sells slices of breast meat, less than an inch thick. You score the skin side, heat the frying pan smoking hot, put it in skin side down. Seven minutes skin side, seven minutes other side. No oil added.

It was about ยฃ4 a portion, though. Considering we bought our whole Thanksgiving duck breast for ยฃ5.

Actually I thought your post on her eyebrows wasn’t particularly snarky at all. At least not compared to a lot out there.

Nothing wrong with a non-turkey Thanksgiving. I had me some nice medium-rare prime rib. Yummy. I couldn’t give up the stuffing, though, so we had to have that. And the green bean casserole. Okay, so I’m not THAT much of a rebel. Hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was awesome.

I made a beast of myself. I had three groaning plates of turkey, ham and sausage stuffing, all with loads of really meaty gravy. When the meat coma hit all I could do was plop into an armchair and stare boss-eyed at the wall.
