We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I think I will try this, but not at Thanksgiving. Tradition must be observed here. I am one of those people who truly enjoys a roast turkey, as long as there is plenty of cranberry sauce, mashed rutabaga, creamed onions, and mashed potatoes to go with it. I like the dark meat.
Photo: I forget where that photo came from, but it's not a photo of Thompson's Turkey. Maybe from Dr. Bob.
Tradition. Heh. I hear ya, BD. Thanksgiving and Christmas are the only two days of the year where Turkey must be served, and I am partial to the dark meat as well. Alas, democracy trumps tradition in my family so I will have to suffer through a standing rib roast (prime rib) this year.
I roasted a whole chicken, breast side down, not too long ago. I never liked white meat that much, but the breast meat was so moist I kept helping myself to more. So I've deicded to roast my turkey the same way. I'm looking forward to the same thing. I really like the taste of turkey so I guess I'm pretty conservative when it comes to roasting it.
