Happy Thanksgiving



The turkey is marinating in what is now the official poultry marinade of Sprawling Ramshackle Compound:

1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of olive oil
juice of one lemon
3-4 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of Tony Chachere's seasoning
A few dashes of Worcestershire sauce
A few dashes of hot sauce

-Heat the ingredients together until the butter melts, then use an injecteur de gout to shoot the marinade into the turkey in several places. Pour any remaining marinade over the turkey and refrigerate overnight.


I am enjoying a post-work bourbon and catching up on my email. Before work I managed to bake a chocolate bourbon pecan pie, and amazingly enough I have also managed to not yet eat any of it.



I have to go in to work in the morning, but I plan on taking some comp time so I can come home early and fry the turkey, then it's off to my brother's house in tornado alley for a late afternoon family feedbag.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Nice Pilgrim girl, Pilgrim. I'd like to give her a scarlet letter and...ahem, a good marinade, though won't the lemon clash?
