Just a comment about the US holiday of Thanksgiving:

Ya' gotta do it right. A fresh killed turkey from a farm that uses responsible methods to raise them (I know of two within driving distance of my house) properly brined and roasted till just done.

None of them damn Butterball® turkeys or other hormone hopped up grease and water injected damn things that you get in most grocery stores for me. No thawed out frozen things either.

Of course, a good stuffing is in order. My sausage stuffing being a good example. Side dishes make the feast. My "Canadian Turnips", garlic mashed potatoes, pearl (Perl?) onions and peas, squash and whatever my hand comes to that might look good on the table. Perhaps roasted onions with pecans this year.

And pies... lots of pies. Apple, cherry, pumpkin and my personal favorite, mince meat made with real honest to goodness home made mince meat. Not that insipid stuff that comes in a jar.

While I'm at it, I can't neglect to mention all the home made biscuits, corn bread and other breads that no feasting table could possibly be complete without.

This year my wife and I and my friend from Bavaria are hosting four international students, three of which have never celebrated the US variety of Thanksgiving before. I'll give them something to write home about!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
