This year’s Thanksgiving celebration was muted in California. With Whazzgiving postponed for now (though more information will be forthcoming) we decided to make it a day of Pure Turkee an’ Football. The decision was also made to amek the meal a lesson in Back To Basics. Turkee, mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing, and rolls. That was it. Oh, and some of the worst beer ever, courtesy of GMC. No offense intended, Masta, but it was bad.
Everything came out great, though we were a bit short on the gravy end. I hate buying store-bought gravy to augment what little I can get from the drippings, but on the other end I love being able to fill a bowl with gravy, pour all my plate’s contents into it, and then eating it like soup. Yes, I love gravy that much. I think we got about a cup and a half from the dripping yesterday. KHHAAAAAANN!
On the upside, me and GMC were full after eating. Full. I was laying on the floor groaning while GMC was on the couch sleeping. We couldn’t even eat the pumpkin pie until several hours later.
Later in the evening, Erin and I took in a showing of The Incredibles at the local megaplex. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.
Today I spent the morning fixing toilets and playing poker. After several hours I’m up one fixed toilet and down about $10. Not bad, over all.
–be sure to remove the whazz and giblets before cooking the turkey… i forgot
