well, here i am down in LA (lower alabama) eatin' a regular old turkey this year -- although, chris, i did stop in at the cozy corner for 3 slabs of ribs for my dad, who told me not to bother coming down without em -- while there, i told the robinsons that if anyone failed to pick up a turkey, i'd buy it next week -- will letcha know what happens. had to keep the ribs in the trunk of my car for the 7 hr drive, and me and the dog were still salivating! ate a slab tonight with a pound of boiled shrimp on the side (louisiana surf and turf, baby!)
then today i found out my mama was gonna forego her usual cornbread stuffing bc the neighbor wanted to make her recipe, which is done in a crockpot! (she is a crackpot) i am only mildly embarrassed to admit that i made my mama drive me to winn-dixie so we could buy cornbread mix and sausage and make the stuffing ourselves (i refuse to be deprived of something so delicious that i only get once a year as it is) -- sauteed celery and onions, crumbled up 12 slices of wonder bread and a pan of cornbread, poured a buncha cans of chicken broth over it, stirred in a lb of cooked tennessee pride sausage and an egg, then baked it in a casserole dish. man, is it gonna be good tomorrow -- and after an hour of dictating to me in the kitchen, even mama admitted that she was damn glad we made it...
she did try to pull the wool over my eyes by taking a short cut on the potato salad (it aint hers if it doesnt have the chopped hard boiled eggs and the pickles) -- don't think i didnt notice!
yeah, i'm spoiled, but so what?
eric, i'm bring a pan of stuffing home for you to try. now how good would it be with zubi's chorizo???
happy thanksgiving, ya'll!
