Thank You for Being Such a Great Audience.
I am somewhat culturally detatched from Thanksgiving and find it difficult to have any true depth of feeling about it, because of my lack of personal history and experience with it. I like to learn about it though, and this year we are lucky enough to have been invited to spend it with some American friends and their family. It's my job to take some dessert, I hope my choice will be suitable enough for the occasion. I am sorry, but I just can't bring myself to make pumpkin pie.
Turkey Tip of the Day
If you have a frozen turkey, don't forget to leave enough time for it to defrost slowly. Allow 24 hours of defrost time per 5lbs of meat. That means, if you have a 20lb turkey, you need to start defrosting it no less than 4 days in advance. If you forget, then just be thankful for the Fresh fish counter at Wholefoods.
Finally, I wanted to echo the words of Kalyn, who in response to a lovely message from Shauna, on Food Blog S'cool, summed up my sentiments, on this day, about the food blogging community. She wrote: "I am thankful to be prosperous enough to be able to participate in such a fun hobby, and to have found so many like-minded people to share it with." Hear, hear, Kalyn!
