Many of you know that I am allergic to chicken. BUT, for whatever reason I am not allergic to turkey and let me tell you, this year I cooked THE BEST TURKEY EVER. I’m not kidding. The Hub and kids sighed over it. It came out, it looked great (they always do, don’t they?) but it was so moist and delicious that I went into a turkey stupor.
Forget the side dishes. It was turkey, and more turkey and after eating it on Thursday, and working two sandwiches into my diet these past couple of days, we are now without turkey and we are all sad. Sad, I say! Even the neighbor girl, the one that “helped” decorate the tree,Β said that it was the best turkey she had in her entire life. She’s eight. Just so you know.
What did I do to the turkey to make it so good? Heck if I know. I cooked it the same way I always do, in an oven bag for the exact time it says to do so, stuffed with oranges and veggies. Just so you know, the oranges make THE BEST GRAVY.
It was a year of BESTS and I am stuffed. Well, not really but I never eat that much. Why do you feel hungry all the time after eating one big meal? I feel sluggish and just want to veg on the couch which is exactly what I shouldn’t do.
As for shopping, I was pretty much done with my shopping by Black Friday but it’s tradition that I head out into the chaos so out I went. It was crazy, but good crazy. Cold, crazy (brrr). The kind of crazy that has you sipping Starbucks and singing Mariah Carey songs. Yep, I’ve lost it. I did get terribly excited about a B&N coupon thinking that I could get the entire Harry Potter set for $24 but alas, it was not to be. I’ve read the series through book four, but never finished the series so I was thinking of reading them all over Christmas break.
Today, I am in denial. I have a paper to write, and I am thinking of work and all the projects sitting on my desk waiting for my attention. I had a nice week off but it’s never long enough. At least, it never seems to be.
I plan to procrastinate just a bit more so I can catch-up with my reader. Off, I go!
