Happy Thanksgiving from me too, to our cousins offshore from Hawai`i where I enjoyed a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner one year.

I thought the Turkey was supposed to be deep-fried, not roasted.

Happy Thanksgiving.

You're a month late and totally into bad weather timing. Not good to schedule a big holiday so close to Christmas/New Year's but then what would the retailers do?

other mates on the other side of the Pacific. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to all... Just put the turkey in an "Oil less" infrared cooker.... Have always cooked in oil in the past. ConPilot--I will give a report on how it works....

Happy Thanskgiving - although the joke here is that Thanksgiving is September 6, which is the date they left!

Interestingly, is there a place called Scrooby in the US , especially New England?

Scrooby in north Nottinghamshire is where the Pilgrim fathers originally came from. It would seem that at least two of them were educated at King Edward 6th Grammar School in Retford: some 400 years later, many of us figured the teaching there hadn't improved any in the meantime.........

Bah, humbug!:*

Watched a well-timed PBS program last night about a man who raised 10? or so wild turkeys basically from the egg. Wild? When time came for him to eat them, they were bloody livid.

No, just kidding. He'd bonded with them and they to him, to the point they all sat on him when he reclined. Beautiful photography and very moving. However . . . why is there always a however?

When they became teenagers, one in particular set about him. Nasty it was. That'n would've been in my pot in double quick time.

He could understand most of their calls, and even the minute inflections that could change the meaning. It was incredible to see/hear. They seemed to know just which snakes were dangerous, and ignored the others, but it was the birds' intense observation of him that was most astonishing. They seemed to take in so much detail of their human parent and be able to assess his next moves just as they would the creatures programed into them at birth.

Looks like it's about to blast off to the Moon.

that's what puzzled me, too, ExS! :)
Otherwise, it's a good holiday to have, so happy-happy!

Gordy is that your backyard?

Your lawn and garden are an absolute
disgrace and you haven't even cleaned
that white muck off the mountains yet!

Ms BB, she of the American persuasion, hosted a Thanksgiving dinner yesterday evening. I, a mere Brit, was allowed to do the gravy - plenty of white port and a pinch of nutmeg, not bad at all. A good mix of people - cousins, Brits, Strines, Chinese, Thais and a huge, in-your-face Croat - ensured a great evening.

Yes, please do, as I've never heard of infrared cooking. Didn't fry turkeys this year, had too many people coming for dinner, so I slow baked a large turkey and smoked a large turkey breast. The smoked breast turned out fantastic
Thaks all for the good wishes and Happy Thangiving.

I'm not going to do a damn thing today, as SWMBO decided that it would be a capital idea to have Bloody Marys at 10:00 yesterday morning. On reflection, that may have been a mistake. :\

Oh, anybody need an extra five gallons of turkey gravy? :p
