Turkeys and turkeys

I'm going to bake tonight. It doesn't seem like Thanksgiving without the pumpkin pie even if we're not eating at home.

Hmmm. Turkey, can't wait.

But speaking of the real turkeys this Thanksgiving. GM -- nothing like a little holiday warmth to give employees. You know I hear Americans say they are going to boycott this and that. I think if Americans really said, "We're not buying...from an American company that takes our tax incentives and then takes jobs and moves them overseas or south of our borders where they will pay people peanuts," then that company might really pay attention. But we gotta do it. We gotta put our money where our mouth is.

So the "Turkey of the Year" Award goes to General Motors. (Who ever said Dubyah doesn't have any competition?)

Boo for GM, hurrah for Thanksgiving cooking!

I just finished a big batch of mashed sweet potatoes with roasted garlic, which I'm taking to a feast in Hoboken tomorrow. The apartment smells amazing. Tomorrow morning, I'll whip up a batch of my grandmother's rice pilaf to round out my appointed role as Starch Queen.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
