Happy Thanksgiving



Happy Thanksgiving Day to you all. I hope you all have a wonderful day, and lots of good food and time with family, and time to reflect on all we can be thankful for. I am hopeful you will resist the intense pressure of turning this time into rampant commercialism. As far as Black Friday . . . JUST STAY HOME!

  1. What a neat photo and I wonder how many of us have ever plucked a goose/turkey/chicken? Sort of a lost art, I would have to believe. No shopping for me on Black Friday but a day to catch up on cleaning and chores and maybe do some sewing. Have a blessed Thanksgiving PJM and all. :)

  2. In the past I raised heritage turkeys for Thanksgiving. I stopped because it is not cheap to raise turkeys when you free range and don't use hormones, etc.; it is labor intensive to butcher (which includes plucking); and people all want the product but are rarely willing to pay what it costs for me to even break even, much less make any sort of profit. However, for those who were willing to pay, the comments were always that it was the best turkey they had ever had.

  3. I plucked a turkey once for Thanksgiving- never again!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    I stay home on Black Friday, but I do shop the online specials.

  6. We had fresh turkey for the first time in my life this year, and it was absolutely wonderful. And we certainly did pay for the privilege of not plucking it ourselves - but it was worth it.

    1. How did the fresh turkey compare with your normal frozen supermarket bird?

    2. My sister just told me this week I need to try a fresh turkey some year. I didn't get exact details, but she said they taste much better.
