MMMMMMMmmmmmmmm! Turkey, and dressing, and mashed potatoes, and gravy, and cranberry sauce (lots of cranberry sauce!), and Waldorf salad, and giblets with more gravy, and mushrooms, and whole-head cauliflower! Yummmmmmm!

I like turkey ONCE A YEAR....and than a nice serving of 'Pernil' (Roast Pork with the skin nice and crisp.....mmmmmmmm). Of course, I'm the one who makes it....its in the oven NOW....and with 'Arroz con Gandules', I would also make 'Spatzle" from scratch (have to cater to my heritages) with a delicious pork gravy

I also make a great stuffing....excaelis....if you're good I might give you the recipe

Seriously everyone, have a Blessed Day

Today we should be thankful for the freedoms we could have if it weren't for the republican base and the vile Supreme Courts ruling that rich corporations can and do fund the political process for their own personal greed. Need I go on???????
