We May be Radical Liberals...
...but deviating from turkey and opting for baked ham is about as far as we stray from convention in our home come Thanksgiving. This was our spread before we done digged in and pigged out. You can see the baked ham with pineapple slices, Stove Top stuffing (with Bell's Seasoning, natch), butternut squash, sweet corn, real mashed potatoes, pitted black olives, Barb's cheesy potatoes on the far left and pork gravy in the foreground. We had a perfect Auslese white wine later topped off with a big bottle of Berkshire Steel Rail beer.
Pumpkin pie and Cool Whip, another concession to tradition, was accompanied by a small bottle of Veuvecliquot champagne we decided to get last night on hearing Tom DeLay got convicted on money laundering and conspiracy charges (Hey, I said we were liberal. The last bottle of champagne that I bought was October 30th, 2005, the day Scooter Libby got indicted. Today, we actually toasted the Travis County DA's office and Ronnie Earle with the champagne. Did I mention we were liberal?) So right now, we're feeling no fucking pain, folks. Ya only live once.
So, what did you guys have for Thanksgiving?
