Thanksgiving, 2009

Spent a few minutes searching for material yesterday and ran across this stupendous piece of advice as you cook your it-was-almost-our-national-bird today:

The secret to a good bird is mayonnaise. Yes, mayonnaise. Slather the whole thing with mayo and then put seasonings on top. Think about it. Mayo is eggs and oil. You would normally add oil to the bird to make it crisp. And when baking, you do an egg wash to add color. So mayo is key. It's my secret to roast chicken and turkey.

And today, you need this site.


This year I am giving thanks, in an acrostic kind of way, for:

Turkey. Taters. Terrific meals of all manner and means.

Home. Hearth. Happiness. Health.

Art. Albums. Animals.

Nice manners. New Technologies. Novels.

Kids. Kitchens.

Spouses. Sofas. Silliness. Songs. And yes, sex.



Very Best Friends.

Invitations that require leaving my house.

Nuance. Language. Words.
