Some people love the hustle and bustle. I probably would too if I lived close. It's the 45 minute drive to get there, then fighting for a parking place, that hits my NO WAY button. If you really have to shop the sales, the internet has just as many deals. It would be nice however, if everyone shopped their local small businesses ... those Mom and Pop stores struggling to survive.
In my area, that consists of the local liquor store. Unfortunately the saying "shop small" came too late. We have Best Buy, Target, Walmart and Kohls. I guess you could count J. C. Penneys too. The only Mom and Pop stores are the taco shops, if a dozen taquitos are on your Christmas List.
Having been spoiled with pre-packaged dinners this last week, I'll be back in the kitchen today with a beauty looking just like this.
Although my Personal Chef is offering 20% off on orders, I'm a little hesitant. Last week I found a long black hair in my Carne Asada. Now I'm not all THAT squeamish, I took it out and nuked the dish for like five minutes before eating it. Unfortunately, this week I found another. This time it went in the trash.
I fired off a message to Matt immediately stating my concerns. He apologized profusely, but my stomach was already on the outs. He made a statement about how his crew ALWAYS wears hairnets, but the people who chop the beef for those dishes do NOT. YIKES!! I had three of those dinners and two came up with human hair. Those odds are a little too high for me!! Aren't I the lucky one!
Sorry, didn't mean to gross you out. At any rate, today I tackle my little 12 pound Butterball. I should have him in the oven just in time for some football. I'm a little short on groceries for Thanksgiving Dinner. The whole no-bag thing threw me off my game and I forgot the veggies. The puppies and I are having turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy. That's the best part anyway!!
If you see lots of smoke and hear fire engine sirens, pay it no mind. It will just be my turkey cooking. Well done is always better than RAW!!
Jonathan, Jessie, Cooper and I wish you
