Have already had 2 Thanksgiving Dinners...working for the City does have some perks...

We eat with the Wifes family. Their menu is Steaks?????

So we always grill steaks for Thanksgiving...Go figure....But, no left-over turkey sandwiches for 2 weeks.....that is a good thing...

Throw some Pecans in those taters, Henry. You'll have something so good it'll make you knock your Daddy down. :lol: My wife makes a cranberry salad that just gets better everyday until you run out of left over turkey and make the sandwich with just the cranberry delight, Yum!!! :lol:

Let's see...Eating at the in-laws. Last time the M-n-L cooked for t-day she burnt the gibblets. Never smelt anything that bad in my life.

But we are having:

Smoaked Turkey
Sweet 'taters
Pinot, Pinot, and Pinot
I'm sure there will be other sides and desert

but did I mention Pinot??


Active Member
Not to appear unrefined but what is Pinot?
Is that some sort of wine or a dish made with pine nuts?


Active Member
Ok that explains why I didn't know what it was.
Beer and distilled spirits is all I drink.
I never developed a taste for wine, probably had something to do with that half gallon of Chianti I drank when I was 14.

Wine is for Kaliforniastanians, Yankees, Italians, and French types...

I may be in Moscowchusetts, but I'll be damned if I'm going to drink wine. It's even worse than those various types of paddy water referred to as "American beers".

Nah, that's for my guests to enjoy. My supplies fit comfortably next to me or in the freezer. ;)

Actually I will be traveling abroad today. Sometime in the early evening I will get to enjoy some of "The Water Of Life" once I am back at the barn for good. :cool:
