I worked on a movie set once in Memphis (The People vs. Larry Flynt) and I remember that the chow wagon did not serve turkey. Why??? They didn't want everyone falling asleep after lunch.
It has that magic chemical that makes you sleepy. I always wondered why everyone fell asleep in the couch or lazy-boy after the Thanksgiving feast! Wow...how funny is that?
Lets see how much you really know about turkeys and Thanksgiving. Take my test and post back your score. I thought I knew a lot about turkeys and I scored 10. Actually, I like being a 10!
Here in the south the big thing is deep fried turkeys. Crispy on the outside and juicy meat inside. Seriously they are pretty yummy and it's quite a cooking feat to perform! Learn how to deep fry your bird and amaze all your relatives this year! They will be talking about it for years and you will become a legend!
This year I have been invited over to my brother's house for Thanksgiving. I'm sure it will be a traditional type of meal. Baking a turkey is really what most people do. Most always it turns out great...but every now and then disaster strikes!
Remember A Christmas Storywhere the dogs get in the back door and eat the turkey off the table? Then the family went to the Chinese restaurant to eat. The waiters try to cheer them up and sing (Faa-Raa-Raa-Raa)! Funny stuff! I love that movie! Seriously, I love some sort of drama during dinner to lighten the somber mood.
Here's something really funny to do to shock relatives. How about baking a pregnant turkey? This is hysterical to pull off on your family. If I was in charge this year, you can bet I would attempt doing this! It would surely go down as something of legend when they talk about me later in the nursing home. "Hey, do you remember when old Aunt Lizette actually baked a pregnant turkey and little Suzy passed out cold in the floor?" Yeah....you need to be remembered fondly when you get old.
Well....all this chatter about turkeys is making me hungry. Coffee only goes so far in the morning. So when I get back in here with my turkey sandwich, entertain me with your wildest Thanksgiving Story. Come on...I know you have one!
HAPPY TURKEY EVERYONE!!!!
