Since I worked Thanksgiving, I decided to have my meal a day early. It was better than some previous years.
I had a turduckin breast, corn on the cob, garlic mashed potatoes and LOTS of gravy. Being single, I don't have to limit my foods to certain occasions. I have corned beef and cabbage several times a year. And I love deep-fried turkey thighs. But, some foods simply aren't available year 'round. We produce 242 million turkeys a year, so why is it so difficult to find thighs?
While I was shopping, I found another scarce item -- a prime rib roast. It is sitting uncovered at the bottom of my fridge now, aging. I'll prepare it next Wednesday.
On Tuesday, I had to take my cat Willow in for her annual check-up and a shot. SOMEHOW, she knew something was up and made herself scarce. I finally cornered her in the kitchen, but she gave me the slip and while I was chasing her, I tripped on something and did a face-plant on my dining room table and then landed on my back on the floor. So, now I have a bunged up knee and my left eye hurts. No emergency room this time.
I'm having problems with my computer fan, so I have to do my blogging from work until I can fix it. So, you might expect some spotty writing.
And finally, for my information, I bought a 21.5-inch monitor, so I've been posting YouTube videos in a larger format. Is anyone having problems viewing them?
Hope you had a good Thanksgiving.
