Thanksgiving Success

I'm sure you're all wondering when I'm going to post about Thanksgiving. To say the least it went well. Wednesday was the mad dash cleaning of the entire house, top to bottom. The good news is my garage is clean for now and so is the rest of the house. My grandparents hadn't seen our house yet and they seemed to like it pretty well. It was kinda odd though, they just kinda came and left. Not much else happened. The turkey was done about two hours before it was supposed to be so it sat in the oven on warm most of the day. I did manage to not set myself on fire and turn the grille in to a giant afterburner of doom on my back porch so that's a bonus. We did three kinds of turkey, and it was all smoked. Not sure why, but I enjoy smoking stuff it would seem. I'm all over it these days. We did one 10 pound turkey injected with Captain Morgans Rum. Then we did one Turkey breast injected with Captain Morgan's Tattoo (good shit too), both were rubbed with Sticky Fingers Rib Rub and olive oil on the outside. The third and final turkey was a Bobby Flay original. read that right...a Bobby Flay recipe. Which can only mean one thing....

Flay and I have reconciled. It would seem he didn't enjoy the last post where I called him an asshole so we watched him on TV yesterday morning and his turkey breast recipe didn't look so we tried it and it rocked. Further review showed that someone submitted that recipe to Mr. Flay, as most of his recipes are not his...that can only mean one thing...

Yeah, he can cook, and most of his recipes aren't so bad...but he's still a dick. I guess we didn't stay reconciled for long huh? Oh well.

At any rate, Thanksgiving was good. Both families seemed to enjoy the meal and my mother-in-law came over early to help cook and even cleaned up afterwards. The only thing I have left to do is hang out and play the rumrunners X-box tomorrow while the wife is out shopping. Hopefully that will last all day, but we'll see. We bought Enter the Matrix at a game place the other day for $5. I played it a little while today and it seems kinda gay, but we'll see. It's been a while since I played any kind of video games but I'll make up for that tomorrow.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends and readers. I'm thankful that you take time to read my blog whenver I get time to post and that you can all take time to laugh and the insanely stupid things I do, and I'm thankful to have you all as my friends.


enjoyed reading your blog!

Glad to hear that all went well with the dinner.

What was the verdict on your knee by the way?

You seen Casino Royale yet? I'm going this afternoon sans wife.

Oregon - Thank you! I'm glad you came by.

Chris - The knee is a sprain and not a tear. I can't run for a month or so, but I can still use the elyptical machines if I want. I've got some killer anti-inflamatories for it so hopefully it will heal soon.

Casino Royale is good...really good. I won't say it's the best Bond ever, but it's good. I will likely go see it again with Mike before too long.
