The Increasingly Political Thoughts of Rebecca (Becky) Walker

In hindsight… November 25, 2006

Well, in hindsight, my Thanksgiving story isn’t very funny.  Basically, the turkey wasn’t thawed out on Wednesday.  Instead of going with the original plan and doing Thanksgiving on Saturday (which I nixed because I thought the turkey might go bad. HA!), I went out to buy a  fresh turkey.  But of course, I had put the pumpkin pie in the oven before I realized the turkey was frozen, so I had to wait until it was done before I could leave.  It’s getting on towards noon and my plans of eating at 2 or so are quickly fading.  So I go to the commisary and they are out of “fresh” turkeys.  So I go to Albertsons and their “fresh” turkeys…well, about 50% of them are still frozen.  I guess to them “fresh” means, “We thawed it out for you”  which was exactly what I needed.  But all they had were 20 pound turkeys.  My husband was not excited about a 13 pound turkey.  What to do.  Again, it doesn’t occur to me to do this all on Saturday.  So I buy a big, honking turkey and everything turns out fine. 

It was a very good turkey and then yesterday, when I cooked the other one (still with ice inside), it was very good, too.  So I think that we will have much turkey over the next couple of months.

Yeah, that’s about it.  It was a good dinner and we didn’t gorge ourselves (Yeah!).
