So, we are guests for a family Thanksgiving two days hence. When we asked, we were invited to bring a vegetable (This may refer to me). I remembered we had a bag of Trader Joe’s “Thanksgiving Stuffing-Flavored Kettle Chips”, so the plan is to arrive and present the bag. The real vegetable will either be holding the bag or retrieve the creamed spinach from the car.
This all got me wondering what other Thanksgiving mischief is possible. For instance, I’m told there is a thing called “flock” made from chicken skin. Well, what about turkey skin? Sweet potato icecream? A greenbean Tom Collins? An eggnog viniagrette? A sweet tofurky pie topped with cranberry creme fraisch?
Just punking tradkition. Carry on. And Happy Thanksgiving.
For me, Thanksgiving is a traditional holiday feast, probably THE one for which I have the least concern about the health aspects and overeating. Thirds on spuds and stuffing, pecan pie, and maybe even a midnight turkey sandwich.
C’mon, without this feast’s excesses, there’d be no need for Buffet Pants!
