I went to Walmart this morning and found some prepackaged Butterball turkey. The packaging makes it look like carved turkey and not that pressed deli meat. We shall see.

I got some russet potatoes and will try to make mashed potatoes.

Brown gravy mix (add water) for the mashed potatoes

Green beans

No brown n serve rolls so perhaps garlic Texas toast.

Add in tears for not being to buy cheap PMags and D&H 30 round magazines and I should be ready for the Cowboys game.

6 pounds of prime rib, currently roasting and some home brewed porter... that's it for me The Lady has insisted on having a baked potato with the sliver of prime rib she'll actually eat and of course she must have ice cream, the cats are dancing around in the kitchen, they smell the prime rib and are waiting for their share of the meat goodness...

Four ounce salmon filet, steamed broccoli.

Half for lunch, half for dinner.

My husband and I went to our favorite restaurant with two other couples again this year.

I had tiny portions of turkey breast with dressing, roast pork, rare roast beef, and mashed potatoes. Then I ODed on blackened redfish, fried shrimp, broiled scallops, and - my favorite - fried oysters. Seriously authentic - none of that green stuff, thank you - key lime pie for dessert.

Half rations for the next couple of days.

Ya know honestly this has been one of the better just fuck it days.
No stress and hunger from not having turkey it was done last night, open faced turkey sammiches with apple juice and coffee and roasted garlic gravy.

Stuffing this afternoon with turkey.

Gravy and roasted taters and veg tonight or tomorrow.

All in all chill and relaxing going at my own pace eating when the mood strikes, drinking coffee or cider surfing the web.

Just getting ready to put my bird in the oven.

Yesterday, I went to the butcher shop and got a fresh (1 day old) 8 pound turkey as all my girls won't be here this year and it's just the two of us.

I rub Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper on the skin after rinsing and patting dry.

Stuff the cavities full of red onion quarters and quartered small sweet oranges.

Keep this bird most moist all day

Green beans, stuffing, eggs ,smoked turkey yum!

There is no line to
My bathroom to which I will siege
Out of TP, ohh shit!!!

Beer, craft beer I need
Not to blade at forty five now
But to slumber, sweet slumber

Honey, I cooked. Clean this
Mess I made now, ohh sammich maker delight
And stay away from bathroom!!!!!!
