Turkey Day

I love this time of year!!!! i don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, but I go nuts for turkey on Thanksgiving. I am a complete and total carnivore, and when it comes to that big roasted bird I lose my mind.
I am so grateful for my clients, and all that I have is because of them. Let's face it folks, without our people we would have no business. In addition, a lot of my success is due to my wife's contribution to the homestead. It takes a lot of patience and planning to manage a household and my wife is the glue that holds ours together. I am truly blessed and have a lot to give thanks for, this and every year.
Let's get back to the Big Day. Since I kind of grew up I have come to love this holiday that is devoted to gluttony, sloth, and greed. I only partake in the first two. I leave the Black Friday shopping to the rest of the crazy people who are convinced that they are actually saving money by shopping the day after Thanksgiving sales. I actually heard a relative bragging about saving six dollars by driving twenty miles to get to a big box store. You do the math.
Gluttony and Sloth! Now that's for me. I do all of the cooking, Stuffed Roasted Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Gravy, Cranberry Sauce(out of a can), and Pecan Pie a la mode for dessert. If anybody has a favorite dish they are welcome to bring it, but that's all that I cook. In between all of that cooking I still manage to watch the football games. I'm so thrilled, there are three games to watch this year thanks to the NFL network. One of which includes the Miami Dolphins, my favorite team.
Wine is an integral part of the dinner. My preferrence is Pinot Noir with turkey, but there are so many varietals that go with the dinner that I put out a big selection for guests.
Enjoy this holiday with family and friends and don't forget to nap before dessert to make room for pie!
Happy Thanksgiving
