51 Weeks to Thanksgiving, 2011!
Working off what seems like a couple tons of Thanksgiving leftovers, it occurs to me that novice Turkey preparers like myself and FSBO’s (“For Sale by Owner’s”) have a lot in common.
Namely, we’re not any good because we do it so seldom.
“Wait Till Next Year”
Fresh off my 2010 Thanksgiving efforts, I’m convinced that I’ve now learned from my mistakes, and will be much better next year (discovery #1: my quirky oven cooks a turkey much faster than the canned directions suggest).
However, “next year” is awfully far away.
By then, I’ll probably have misplaced all my carefully gathered notes — and will start up the learning curve all over again.
