    Thanksgiving cooking

    Who else brines turkey? Does most of the holiday cooking versus the wife?
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    I'm the resident cook... Martha Stewart (that renowned felon) and I do the turkey and all the accoutrements.

    Crickets? After 8 minutes, Brad? Lol. Ga, I'm also the cook in the family, so much so that even wife's family prefers my cooking. :)

    I just meant from me. I'm not much of a cook. I make a mean red beans and rice and French toast... after that you'll want some take-out.

    If you can do those, you can do a lot more common cooking. Just try things. Main complaint my wife has, is that I improv recipes and she can't duplicate it

    I used to brine the turkey but haven't the last couple years. I still haven't finished food shopping yet, I've been procrastinating this year. Imdo have the turkey though. I wish someone would do the cooking here besides the wife, I hate to cook...

    Our method of Thanksgiving Day cooking consists of using the telephone to find out which restaurants are open.

    I bought two smoked turkeys from a local BBQ place. I started one on Sunday with my parents, and I can't wait to have at the second one on Thursday.

    I will be Deep Frying my Turkey this year. I will inject marinade and season the outer skin Wednesday and put it in the refrigerator for an overnight stay so the seasoning will saturate the meat.

    The crickets were cooking ahead, from 9:34 to 9:42pm. Busy at the stove.

    Myself, I'm the resident cook as well. Haven't brined a bird before. Am mulling over a barbecue type deal, later in the week.

    Thanksgiving cooking

    I'll be on call but eating at wife's grandmother's like we do each year. The usual Thanksgiving staples like oven roasted turkey, ham, stuffing, mac'n'cheese, green beans, sweet potato casserole, devolved eggs, potato salad, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, will be in the spread.

    When I was a contractor,we had to dig a new "dead pond" on a turkey farm,then fill in the old one (still gag and retch at the memory).
    It's Prime Rib at my place.
