Only in a great country like ours can we enjoy the blessings of freedom, prosperity, abundance, and still have leftovers... LOL
If your home is anything like ours, can you eat all day, and into the night, leave a tidy some of food, (like that G'dawful gooey cranberry stuff) and still have more food than what you had before you started. Look at your refrigerator, is it any room left... well is there??? LOL

You won't believe this........ although I can't imagine why not..   My grandmother and my great aunts always removed the wings from a stewing chicken before they put it in the soup pot. I asked them why, and they told me that was the way their grandma, my great grandmother, did it and she taught them how to cook!   Fortunately my great grandmother was still around and feisty as heck, the women in my family lived ripe old ages many into the 100+, I digress, I asked her why she did it. She took me to the cupboard and took out her stewing pot, and it was tall and narrow, sooooooo she had to remove the wings to comfortably stir the soup as it cooked...LOLOLOL  My family and I really follow orders...Bwhahahahahahah...wait...HUH?

Happy early turkey day.....

Let me offer FOUR suggestions...which are easy to implement and came help make for a successful turke..

1. If you are buying a frozen bird..put it in the refrigerator to thaw 4-5 days BEFORE you cook it...Larger birs take evne longer, and a bird that isn't thawed will NOT cook evenly.

2. BRINE the's the only way to go..and it's real easy..

3. If you don't have a thermometer..the only way to tell if a bird is cooked is to check the internal temp

4. When you take the bird out of the oven, tent it snugly with aluminum foil, and allow it to rest for 30 minutes. The bird continues to cook, internal temperature will rise by as much as 10degrees, and the juices will settle...and it will be much easier to carve..

I NEVER want to be off your ping list, Carlo. Some of the funnest stuff on this great board!

I do not wish to start a prayer thread, and I do not really ask for replies to "clutter" the thread. I know that people who love good food, are generally good people.

But, if y'all pray, say one for my Mama, Irene. She is at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Short story is the local doctor had diagnosed nerve inflammation as the cause of the bouts of excrutiating pain that ahe has suffered for over a year. The folks at Mayo have reason to believe it is something other. The Rheumatologist, as of today, cannot see her until the 25th.

So we would have to delay Thanksgiving dinner. Which, in the case of her health, is small stuff. But, if something could open up earlier, it would be very good. Thanksgiving is actually a bigger holiday for us than Christmas.
