    Default Happy Turkey Day

    Put 1st bird on smoker at 5, 2nd in the oven at 7, got a ham to deal with but that is easy, both birds 20# each, lot of meat.

    Hope you all eat your fill today, I am going to.

    Thanx. We have a small family get together planned. Wife volunteered to do pot roast with potatoes and carrots here. recipes in spanish abound for "asado de res americano" on youtube but the biggest export butcher shop in town said they don't have that cut so they substituted something else. Looks like a go.

    Covid put a damper on a big party, plus Nicas generally have to work today.

    Covid was an intelligence test and we flunked.

    Looking forward to eviled eggs, Ham, Turkey, Gravy, Waldorf Salad and a bunch of things I don't care about like sweet potatoes.....plenty of wine and rum.

    Wife, Daughter, Boyfriend (hers not mine), Grand Daughter.

    Thought about Kevin's venison and decided to shoot a couple of squirrels in the back yard. Worked out OK until the cops showed up and arrested me for some silly reason about discharging unregistered fire arms and something about licenses. The food isn't very good here by the way. I'll be out soon.

    You just haven't had the right sweet potatoes.
    Good thing that those squirrels weren't a protected species.

    Ya know?....They got really excited when I answered the door carrying my gun....Man those guys are really nervous.

    I guess that the blood on my hands from skinning the squirrels set them off.

    I am not sure if I ever brought this up before.

    So Thanks giving #1 - 1990 - Turkey is all set at my Mom's place - Potatoes steaming - Veggies with the butter melting - Buns in the basket covered - Gravy - The whole 9 yards. 6 of us around the table (Mom and Arnold, My Sister and her Fiancé, Chilo and I)

    Chilo was obviously perplexed with 1) The state of the bird and 2) The stuffing - The meal proceeded with Chilo really hung up on the choice of the bird meat question.

    He English was really limited at the time as was my Spanish so there was not much small talk.

    Then on the Monday (My Mom typically did T-giving on the Sunday) we went to Chilo's house. They also had a "Turkey" dinner. So the house was a cacophony of activity - Over 20 people - Dona Rosa (Chilo's Mom) and all the sisters in the Kitchen - Music blaring, Children running, unanounced people at the door and a good 1/4 of them pissed to the gills already - I asked what was for dinner - Chilo said (cheerfully) Turkey..

    But the oven was off and the counter devoud of the bird - BUT there was "The pot" - The big bubbling pot

    Out from the bubbling pot came the bird - More of a stew, than identifiable fowl - Pickled olives, onions, Yucca and other boiled veggies to boot.

    All scooped up with a ladle on to a paper plate with a heap of Gallo Pinto

    It was at that point I realized why Chilo was so perplexed the day before - Not that it was Turkey, it was just the first time she had seen a turkey taken out of an oven. with bread stuffed up its ass, that you actually chose the part you wanted.
