    Before baking the turkey, loosen the skin on both breasts and slide that bacon under the skin.
    Just prepare extra pumpkin and freeze it for use later in the year.

    I think this qualifies:

    I was invited to Thanksgiving dinner by the family of a young lady I was dating (obviously a long time ago). I was eagerly anticipating a good home cooked feast. Wrong!!! We loaded into various cars, and headed to the Durham Holiday Inn* (now a Days Inn). It was not a five star restaurant. I never determined if this was an emergency backup due to a cooking crisis, or if this was their norm. They also invited me the following year, but I told them that I had committed to traveling to my parents for Thanksgiving.

    * Iíve heard that Playboy Magazine once selected this Holiday Inn in the nations top 10 motels to get crabs. I donít think they were talking seafood.

    For the latest installment of Daughter #1ís Thanksgiving cooking expertise:

    She remembered to turn the oven on this time. Unfortunately, she defrosted the turkey for one whole week. It was rancid and inedible. For dessert, however, she had a homemade pumpkin pie. Unfortunately, she prepared it a week in advance but failed to refrigerate it. Is pumpkin pie supposed to be green?

    Luckily, Mrs. TruBlu and I are spending Thanksgiving with Daughter #2ís family a few states away, and she has better cooking skills.

    For Christmas, we are going to be at Daughter #1ís family. We are already scouting that area for open Chinese restaurants.

    Peking Duck is always a popular choice.

    I have a sister-in-law who Does Not Cook. She decided to cook a turkey one Thanksgiving. Not wanting to deal with the difficulties of a whole turkey though, she bought a turkey roll that the deli used to slice turkey for sandwiches (ďItís cleaned, prepared, and already cooked, right?Ē) and warmed that up.

    And being somewhat frugal, she didnít spring for the, um, less-pressed roll.

    Of the things I am thankful for this year, topping the list is that both Mrs.PK and I are both handy in the kitchen.

    I tried this and it was both easy and delicious. Thanks for putting it on my radar!

    Gas stations have great sushi. They also sell Pepto Bismal.

    Ouch. Maybe I now understand why young women in high school used to be funneled into Home Ec courses! Do schools still do that in the olde sexist fashion (boys got shop class instead, maybe I'm just dating myself. Actually I think all kids should be given some fundamental cooking courses since it's an essential life skill, one with major health ramifications, especially if you eat the rancid bird or green pie).

    Yikes! I grew up watching my mother cook in the kitchen, as did my brothers. I was pretty much in charge of the potato salad since I was fifteen. Now that I am grown and Mom is older, I do the turkey (using a roasting bag - the EASIEST way to a delicious turkey) and several of the other things. Plenty pooped today from all the work, but it was worth it, as always.

    My wife cooked about a 4 pound butterball turkey breast Wednesday evening and made her own cranberry sauce so the "main courses" were home-made. The whole grain bread and cheese for the sammiches were store bought as were the potato (chips). A sales rep brought us mini-bundt cupcakes on Wednesday so they were our dessert. We'll have some more turkey tomorrow (none today-we were traveling) and I might gently twist her arm to make some of her own dressing tomorrow or Sunday.
