Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

Today we will hold our annual Turley Turkey Bowl with about 40 neighborhood kids early Thanksgiving morning. As always, it will be the Chicago Bears versus the Washington Redskins (though I have promised to fork over the donuts and hot chocolate even if the Bears lose).

We do a two Turkey dinner (despite watching the PETA Thanksgiving commercial). I cook a fresh Turkey in the oven and a second bird on the grill with smoking wine chips. Last year, the grill Turkey burst into flames, so I am hoping to redeem myself this year. Ironically, after putting the flaming bird out, we served the two birds separately. The grill bird was by far the most popular. It was the ultimate smoked bird. This year, I am going to try to regain that smoked taste without the actual smoking Turkey.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. I view our little group of regulars like a virtual family and I will be toasting to our merry band of miscreants with a nice Pinot Noir this holiday!

    Alices Restaurant is one of my all time favorites. My wife and I saw him live several months ago and other than the grey hair, he sounds exactly the same.

    Tie our tails behind us, and put us in a place where the devil can’t find us.”

  5. A good start…

    “Happy Thanksgiving to Greg Horoski and his wife Diane from Suffolk Judge Jeffrey Spinner, who wiped out $525,000 in mortgage payments demanded by a California Bank whose actions Spinner blasted as “harsh, repugnant, shocking and repulsive.” Horoski said negotiating with the bankers at OneWest, which got an $814.2 million federal bailout but have been ruthlessly foreclosing on people, was “like dealing with organized crime.”


  6. A happy Thanksgiving to all my virtual friends and to our host as he labors to please kith and kin with culinary legerdemain and football follies. While separated from my family in NYC, since they will be together and have already called, I’ll see them next month. Today is an especially peaceful day for me since I’ll be with friends who are doing the cooking, leaving me to only stuff myself. Eat hearty, drink moderately and feel the comfort of those you love and love to be with.
