Well, it's that time of year again .... only this time the year is 2020. What do we have to be thankful for this year? Not as much as usual I know.
In the spirit of the holiday though, I will list what I am most thankful for.
#1 My incredible girlfriend who I plan to soon make my incredible fiance (if she agrees)!
#2 (Fitting number) For my incredible, wonderful, horrible, amazing, insane, bizarre, talented, lazy, perfect children. I love them so much. If they would turn in their damn school work it'd be nice.
#3 Like 87% of my family and friends. The ones who didn't turn out to be closet fascists. I guess that's a pretty great ratio, though sometimes it doesn't seem like it.
#4 Penny Arcade Forums. You all are the best. I look forward to this thread every year
#5 Frenchs Crispy Fried Onions obviously
Everything else falls somewhere below that
So lets get to the meat (aAhhahah AHHAHAHHHAHHA) of the thread.
(no, not that kind)
Thanksgiving is NOTHING without turkey. You may all gather together in love and friendship, but eventually everyone will be hungry and will be angry if a perfectly cooked turkey isn't on that table. boy howdy. It should look like this. I don't know what the heck is going on with the serving plate though. It's possibly a turkey from another dimension.
Equally as important are the sides! (More important if I'm being honest with myself)
Stuffing! This will be made this year using sausage from my newly constructed smoke shack!
That was a TRAP and you fell for it! It's called dressing if it wasn't cooked in the vacant carcass of an animal. I've got my eye on you people. I'll call the Thanksgiving Police on the lot of you.
Roasted Carrots with .... slivered almonds and dried cranberries .... I guess? Looks damn good though.
Pearl Onions and Bacon! A match made in heaven! (add peas if desired)
Slather up the entire plate with a goodly helping of gravy!
Now top the gravy with a fist full of sin!
If you've got room (you do .... trust me), slice off a big ole piece of pumpkin pie and whipped cream (or sweet potato pie) (or both)MST3k is doing its thing again this year!
Alice's Restaurant is of course required listening:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m57gzA2JCcM
so! I know large gatherings and the like will be muted this year, but lets here those plans!
I'll be attending a small 7 person dinner that will undoubtedly feed at least 2 dozen and I can't wait!
