    I originally began this cooking thread because – during my many years as a ‘lurker’ here before signing up – I greatly enjoyed the annual Thanksgiving cooking threads that I would see. (Somewhere on my hard drive, I’m sure I have many Freeper recipes that were posted over the years before I officially arrived on the scene.) Now, the holiday season is getting into gear, and Thanksgiving is on the near horizon once again. Please share with us your family favorites, traditions, and your memories of this very American of holidays. We’ve noted many times before that people really don’t...
  • VIDEO: NOT Brining Turkey Is a Crime!!!

    VIDEO Sorry, it is NOT an option. If you are preparing turkey you MUST brine your turkey. As I explain in this video, brining changes the chemistry of the turkey to the extent that it changes both the texture and the color of the turkey as well as its taste. The main ingredients to make a brine are 2 cups of kosher salt and 2 cups of brown sugar. You can also add rosemary and thyme along with other herbs along with whole peppercorns and crushed garlic for flavoring. Prepare your brine mixture by heating one quart of water...

    Whether you know it or not, if you’re a conservative you are a conservationist. Why? Because you believe in conserving things. Along with liberals, conservatives likely think it is a good idea to conserve clean water and clean air. We might even argue that it’s wise to conserve an owl, a tree and a whale once in a while. But what often distinguishes conservatives from our progressive brothers and sisters is that we believe in conserving not just the material but also the moral and the intellectual. We believe in conserving ideas. Conservatives hold there are certain ideas that are...
  • Finding Thanksgiving in the Borderline Tragedy

    11/25/2018 5:41:55 AM PST · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | November 25, 2018 | David Spady
    The original Thanksgiving observance in 1621 was a celebration of the Pilgrim’s survival following a difficult winter during which 46 of 102 original colonists had perished. It was a time to reflect back on the great difficulty they had experienced and celebrate how their community was able to recover and endure. Two weeks ago, on November 7th at 11:30pm, my phone rang. I listened as my wife informed me that there had been a shooting at Borderline, a popular country-themed restaurant and dance club that our two oldest children frequent most Wednesday evenings for College Night. She said our son...

    On the morning of November 17th, 1962, FBI headquarters in Washington D.C. took on “all the trappings of a military command post,” according to historian William Breuer. The previous night an intelligence puzzle had finally come together. The resulting picture staggered the FBI men. And these had served at their posts during WWII and the height of the Cold War. They’d seen plenty. Now they had mere days to foil a crime against their nation to rival Hideki Tojo’s.At the time (pre-Mueller! And pre-Comey!), the FBI relied heavily on “HUMINT” (Human Intelligence.) So they’d expertly penetrated the plot, identified the ringleaders...

    I just saw this in my in basket. Some moron is calling 'A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving' racist. Know why? Franklin is sitting on a lawn chair while the white kids are sitting at dining chairs. My God, these morons (and libs are) are really reaching to see racism. Mom and dad said that Charles Schultz created Franklin and he was the first black in the comics. I know I'm a teen, but libs, you are getting stupider. Franklin in a lawn chair, but libs, it is a cartoon. I never saw a dog operate a toaster (or type) in real...
  • The Meaning of Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving weekend should be about more than Black Friday sales, leftover turkey sandwiches and football. For most of us, the holiday symbolizes what America is all about: thanking God for the good fortune of living in America. The Pilgrims certainly felt that on the first Thanksgiving, having fled religious persecution in England to found colonies in the New World. Successive waves of immigrants have felt the same thing, whether they left home seeking freedom and opportunity or they were driven out by poverty and violence. And for much of our history as a nation, we have taken in these newcomers,...

    History professor, author Larry Schweikart (and Free Republic commentator LS ) narrates his story on a Prager University video. It explains how the colonists in the 1600's established a system he describes as an "ideal socialist commune" in Jamestown and Plymouth. This history video (YouTube... 5 minutes.. 1 million hits) is pure plain talk: every Deplorable and liberal can understand it. Great for high school and college students — anyone actually. Best short defense of capitalism I've ever seen. I found this video on Larry's active Twitter page where I'm finding great material. Check it out FReepers.

    It was a fine Thanksgiving at Mar a Lago:President Trump invited the Press to dinner but they weren’t really grateful. As is their custom with this President, they bit the hand that fed them. The hit pieces were predictable: Trump’s Thanksgiving message was inelegant, unlike the eloquent Obama. He declined to visit troops in the war zone, like the President who declared victory and left Iraq in the clutches of ISIS. He didn’t go pack potatoes at a food pantry like the ex-President who clearly knows a thing or two about packing spuds.How they hangin’ white boy?For the record, let...

    Tonight, ABC aired the classic animated Peanuts special A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and while many fans tuned in for the warmth of nostalgia to kick off their holiday season, many came away with a less than fuzzy feeling when it came to how one specific character was treated. The special centers around a somewhat impromptu holiday meal that happens when Peppermint Patty invites herself and several others over to Charlie Brown and Sally's house for Thanksgiving despite the fact that they're preparing to go to their grandmother's for the feast. After a little help from Linus, who convinces Charlie...

    Years ago, I framed an old family photograph and put it in a prominent place for Thanksgiving visitors to see. Four of us are elegantly posed by the photographer, taking ourselves oh-so-seriously for the family album. The younger generations gathered around the table to see their parents and grandparents at a younger stage of their lives, which they could scarcely imagine. The portrait -- in black and white, no less -- was made for posterity, not just a fleeting Instagram. Daddy and my brother were solemn in their best dark suits with a white handkerchief in their breast pockets, and...

    President Donald Trump made a Thanksgiving Day threat to close the U.S. border with Mexico for an undisclosed period of time if his administration determines that its southern ally has lost "control" on its side. Trump also said he has given.... active-duty troops .... the "OK" to use lethal force against migrants "if they have to." [snip] The president would not discount the possibility of a partial government shutdown early in December over lawmakers' refusal to allocate the billions of dollars he is demanding for a border wall, the central promise of his 2016 campaign. "Could there be a shutdown?...
