    oh I can give the explanation for that!

    so in 5th grade I got this book from my grandmother called 'Our 50 States' which gave a bunch of pretty pictures and interesting factoids about each of the 50 states. I loved it and probably read it a hundred times. I used to know all the state mottos and state flowers too but that's long since left my noggin.

    One day I'll visit them all!

    Did you know that the Dakotas are a Native American nation and they will not be spoken of this way in this house?

    I also want to add how it warms my heart that, much like Thanksgiving itself, the Thanksgiving thread has now devolved into pointless arguments about inane bullshit. I'm cutting you all out of my will!

    Happy holidays! 🦃

    Heading out at 7 AM tomorrow. My sister bafflingly has the start of her next chemo round on Thanksgiving itself, so we're having the meal tomorrow while she can still eat. I've got a cooler full of beer, fancy cheeses, prosciutto, summer sausage, and jalapeno popper dip. I've also got a tote bag with two loaves of home-baked bread, one of them cinnamon swirl, fancy crackers for the cheese, and half a dozen each almond croissants and chocolatines from the bakery up the road.

    Let's fuckin' give this thanks, I got to be back in town for work on Saturday.

    It is a family tradition to abuse my eldest sister by asking her:

    "What's the capitol of (insert state capitol name)?"

    Usually we get the name of the state out of her.

    I quizzed myself and got all 50 states with 46 capitals (missed Wisconsin, Missouri, Alabama, and New Hampshire)

    I was in a roll in 6th grade geography bee until, in my cockiness, I blurted out "New York City" as the capital of New York and I knew it was Albany as soon as I finished talking. I then had to sit and watch as the three quarters of everyone else remaining was eliminated on "Gulf of California", a question I knew cold.

    I'm still mad about this like 25 years later.

    I actually won the 8th grade geography bee at my school.

    Made it through regional as well.

    Got crushed at state level.

    It isn’t gas, it’s plasma.

    I went ahead and prepped the turkey by patting it dry and rubbing it with salt and pepper.

    My salt is coarse kosher though so it didn't stick super good?

    Hopefully it'll be alright

    Also handing raw turkey feels like holding a alien baby. Like the birthing scene from men in black.

    I decided to not do the whole turkey thing this year and instead will be making chicken pot pies for the first time.

    Incidentally, if all pie tins in a 10 mile radius are gone, how easy is it to turn a regular cake pan into a pie tin?

    We are only 5 people this year, decided on something different. Crown roast of lamb with a red wine and bone broth reduction sauce topped with quickly wilted spinach in lemon/lime juice and cracked pepper/salt. Sides are mashed sweet potato with as buttery herb sauce, stuffing, lightly broiled asparagus with a mushroom topper. Rolls and biscuits, deviled eggs as well.

    No bird for me this year. The brisket is prepped in the fridge though. Going on the smoker at 10pm tonight.
