My family's bird feast is actually Saturday. My brother and two cousins are all married, so if we tried for a Thursday meal, there's no way we could get everyone to be there. This way we don't compete with all the in-laws.
So tonight, in the interest of not taking up valuable fridge space with leftovers, I made PANCAKES! My signature fluffy perfection pancakes, and we had bacon, and fried-in-bacon-grease eggs, and apple compote, and it was GREAT.
My Thanksgiving was bitter sweet. All my cousins are male, and they're at that stage in a relationship when Thanksgivings is a change to make nice with future in-laws. It was very quiet and small. Turkey was good but my Dad's sweet potato pie stole the show.

I got to cook for the first time in like 3 years. Trained chef, so this is like MY holiday. Did a small get together with the family. My future sister in law has a 3 week old baby, so loots of adults making baby noises to be had.
And now I get to find 2820458728097 things to do with turkey!
Sidenote, anyone spatchcock their turkey? If not, I suggest testing it on a chicken first so you can try it next year. Takes 1/3rd of the time, and it makes the BEST BIRD EVER.
The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it. because its only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. stone crumbles. wood rots. people, well, they die. but things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.”
