Fryday

While some of you are probably still recovering from your Halloween induced diabetic coma, some of us are on to bigger and better things. Like Thanksgiving.


Is there any better salute to gluttony than Turkey Day? For our non-North American readers out there, Thanksgiving is the day we celebrate what we have by gorging ourselves with food. It was started by the Pilgrims who celebrated surviving the godawful weather of the Northeast by taking the Native American's land but letting them have casinos. While the tradition has evolved some over the years, every Thanksgiving Americans gather together to watch a parade, hope a balloon gets loose, watch the Lions lose and re-enact the first scene of Se7en.


So at work today, we're having a little pot luck celebration in advance of Thanksgiving. This reporter will be frying a turkey. Because nothing says thanks like 4 gallons of hot oil. It's the danger that makes it so delicious.


I may just have to run down to the store and pick up a little bacon while I'm at it.

Happy Friday, kids! Anyone else up to anything good today?


Oh and you'd better go read that diet pill review after all that food.

I've never fried a turkey. I've heard it's good! Nothing like taking the lowest fat meat out there and making it artery clogging.

I love fried turkey. It's actually as healthy as any other way of preparing it if you do it right because the skins seals in the juices and doesn't let the oil in.

Today - hyperventilating while renting a UHaul trailer and trying to figure out how to get everything that's still left in my house out in one day. I refuse to stay in Utah more than one night ever again.

I know I'm probably alone on this one at this site, but I'm not a turkey fan. I do love me some mashed potatoes and gravy, though. Yum. This year, I've invited a Korean student over to experience all the gluttony that is Thanksgiving. Can't wait!

Fried turkey is THE BEST! Don't burn anything down.
