**Update, November 24, 2011, 10:25PM: Thanksgiving went off without a hitch. Despite my earlier chafing against holiday orthodoxy, it was, perhaps, the most traditional Thanksgiving I have ever made. And it was tasty. And it was well received. And a good time was had by all.
For those of you who were there — thanks for coming; it was great! And for all the rest of you out there who weren’t — be sorry you missed it.
Now, I know. That picture of a naked turkey (technically proficient as it might be) is a bit hard to look at as the top image on the blog. So, in honor of the holiday spirit, here’s something slightly more appetizing to the eye. Enjoy!
I hope that you all have a great time with turkey, and family, and stuffing, and pie. I know that I will!
