Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. I am so very thankful for the blogging community. I am so thankful for the wonderful friendships I have formed from this silly blog full of my silly thoughts. I am so thankful for the laughs, the tears, the hugs, the absolute silliness, the advice, the ability to bitch about random things and get support, the wonderful ideas I get from reading all of your blogs.....Thank you, everyone!
In unrelated news, I would have to say massaging butter onto a raw turkey is probably one of the most disgusting things I have to do as an adult. I would much rather clean baby shit or dog puke (or baby puke or dog shit?). But the upside to all this nasty massaging & basting is a kick-ass turkey (I hope). I'll let you know.
Sorta related, we used the bottom oven last night for the first time, and it smoked for a good 30 minutes. Blech.
Also? I brined my turkey in an ice chest. Does that make me white trash?
