After careful consideration, we went with the turkey breast instead of the whole bird this year.
It’s going to be outstanding, I’m sure, what with all the other excellent accompaniments planned for our holiday table by my dear wife Karen here in our Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood.
I’ve seen the chips and dip, and heard about the rye boat and shrimp and cocktail sauce.
The bag of potatoes has been sitting out on the back porch, with Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle most interested by wonderfully keeping her nose outside the plastic.
The guests will arrive at 2 p.m. Elisabeth and George Three said yes first. Daryl on Monday night told us that he’d be bringing girlfriend Vicky and her daughter Alexis, whom we’ll all meet for the first time. That makes us very happy.
The breast-only main event will be quicker to cook, and much easier to carve than the full bird when ready. Tradition by darned, we said. We all like the white meat best anyway. Late Monday night, Karen decided to add a small ham, just in case.
Bring on the Macy’s Parade on the flat screen.
Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it here in the States.
Where are you spending your Thanksgiving? What will be your main meal spread? who will you be sharing the holiday with today?
