I'm honored -- and in some damn fine company.
This is my daughter's first Thanksgiving actually cooking the whole kit and caboodle, so other than the Vidalia pies -- I used Inca Sweets and baked without a top crust this time -- and the smoked turkey legs with Dr Pepper barbecue sauce for the grandkids, all I'm bringing is the wine and my appetite.

Drinks, more drinks, maybe a couple more for good measure...followed by football.
Turkey with all the trimmings and wine lots of wine.
