I cooked a turkey. I cannot believe that for 20+ years I have been cooking Thanksgiving. Now, let’s be honest about this; I don’t do it EVERY year. But I have done it quite a few times over those 20+ years. My favorite story was the year I cooked a duck. Mr. Lawmom and I had not been together very long when that cooking adventure occurred. We were living in Henderson (pre-law school) and we decided that a duck would make a good meal for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Hmmmmmm. When God made ducks did he just look at it and say “Hmmm, I’ll put a funny yellow flat thing on it’s face and St. Francis, would you hand me the larder?” They are greasy little things. Oh My goodness. That was an interesting meal. I would like to provide details, but for the sake of my sanity, most of it has been blocked out 🙂
I had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner with my mother, husband, daughter and myself. I love cooking for family and I love my family. and I love to brine turkey, it turns out.
