The Bird is in the Oven

It's been cooking now for about an hour and smells really good!

I think your bird will be delicious. I`m from México, but I´m curiuos about thanksgiving day. What exactly are you celebrating?

For some reason all this mention of roasting birds has me thinking of Christmas and singing tunes from the Bonanza Christmas Album.

Let me be the first to say that both the food and the gathering were a huge success. Everyone had a good time, got thoroughly stuffed, and there was way too much food for everyone. Leftovers!

Hi monsenor,

Thanksgiving is traditionally a day to give thanks to God, but since I'm an atheist I just treat it like all the other holidays and use it as an excuse to get together with family and friends for a little extra special festivity.

The food turned out well, but I am disappointed I couldn't taste much of it. I ended up getting a bad cold and couldn't smell or taste what I was cooking. Everyone said it was good though and the bird was in fact tender and juicy. I'll throw up pics in the next day or so. :)

Bizarro,

The official story behind Thanksgiving (which, of course, you can check out at Wikipedia) is that when the Pilgrims first came to America from England, they had a hard time surviving. Some friendly Native Americans (whom some confused Americans called "Indians") taught them some things about fishing and growing food. Out of gratitude, the governor of Plymouth held a feast of celebration and invited the Native Americans to share in the harvest.

That is the kindergarten explanation of the story. The real story is apparently much less tidy, but I won't go into that for fear of sounding too cynical.

I wish I could have been there to tastes your wonderful turkey and side dishes. It all sounds so very good. So sorry you and Ben are sick, tho.

Elizabeth got sick, too..last night. I took care of her while the others went to dinner at Cowtown to visit with Lee.

Hope you all are feeling much better soon.
