I almost made a very serious error this year for Thanksgiving. Given that I’m only having a few people over, I thought it might be cool to do something a little different. So I thought I’d do a goose instead of a turkey.
Here’s a tip for you all: When making substantial meal changes to a classic meal like Thanksgiving dinner… run it by your spouse first. I think Betsy almost kicked me out of the house when I told her that I was thinking about a goose instead of a turkey.
So the turkey is back on the menu!
Maybe we’ll do the goose for Christmas…
No poll this week because I’m doing a shortened week of posts next week for the holidays.
Here’s a few links to get you ready for Thanksgiving though!
Five Ways to Drink Thanksgiving - A crazy list of drinks that use foods from Thanksgiving. I’m completely intrigued by the last one which is actually a new way to make turkey using a drink. It’s so crazy it just might work. (@ Endless Simmer)
How to Brine a Turkey – I’ll be honest. I really only cook turkey in one of two ways these days: Fried or brined. If I had a smoker, I’d do that too. But if you’re just roasting a bird, brine it and thank me later. (@ Savory Reviews)
Have a great weekend everyone!
