Getting Ready For Thanksgiving Recipes etc.


1 Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will
Of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.


Today I'm preparing for our Thanksgiving meal.  We will have the traditional menu, not much changes, because family likes that.  However, as of late, and I hate to admit it, my turkey has been lacking.  Carly makes one fine turkey sometimes two and they are great. Mine however needs some tweaking.

Over the years, I've made the turn on the oven very high temp. cook turkey for an hour, turn oven off, don't open oven door.  Wow it is a wonder any of us are alive!  Many friends and family did that dangerous recipe.  Hey, some of you may have?

I've brined, both dry and wet over the years.  Changed how I seasoned, slipped lemon, or oranges under the skin, stuffed onions and celery inside, doused with olive oil, butter of course.....

We've even spent hundreds of dollars on Heritage grown turkeys.  Truthfully, they weren't any better than the ones in the freezer case.  If I had the time and dollars would order from other growers and maybe the outcome would be better.  I just don't know.

What's a person to do when the turkey in present day is grown in such a rapid manner that it is just not as tender as it used to be?  Who knows?  I am thawing one in the sink presently to do a test bake and will let you know how and if it turns out well, or not!  I have high hopes!

Today sharing some pictures and links to Recipes I have on hand here. In the future I will share more from my now closed cooking blog.  Until then Happy Thanksgiving Preps to you all!

Sweet BBQ Sauce




I love Bar-B-Qued Chicken!  We don't have it near enough, that's for sure.  It is awesome on the grill.  Some days like today when it is cold and rainy out cooking inside is a good idea. Baking or roasting is easy enough to do.  You find you don't have any sauce, this is easy to make... Give it a try.

Bradford Beavers




I am pleased to have as Spotlight Story Bradford Beavers. Bradford, is a born fisherman.  I really believe he was born to do this.  Today we learn a little more about this young man and his talent for pulling in the big ones!

Bradford is from Summerville, South Carolina.  He loves hunting as well as fishing.  We may have to get him to share some of his hunting experiences with us one day.  His home lake is Santee and his favorite lake is Okeechobee!  Bradford's strengths lie in jigs and spinnerbait.  I'm sure you fishermen out there know all about these!

I asked Bradford to write about himself.  That is something that is hard to do for most people, because they believe they have nothing to say.  Everyone says this and each has a story to tell. 

We will be hearing much more about this young man, his love of and talent in fishing.  Heck the internet is blowing up with his information, a simple search shows that.  Today his story.....
