  1. Anyone have any must-have Thanksgiving recipes? Maybe something a step up from the canned, congealed cranberry glop? We're headed to my sister's for Thanksgiving this year, which means I'm at the helm for dinner prep. We're not big on turkey, so current plans are for brined baked chicken, glazed carrots, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and green bean casserole with bacon and cheese, but the rest is TBD. I'm considering giving a french onion soup a whirl.

    Petite millennial with dog enjoys taking crooked photos of her Jeep and cliche beach photos down the length of her body.
  4. In that case, I suspect most of the commentary came from those who hadn't really watched, but were just thrilled about Spacey being gone...
  5. I've been debating whether to watch. I had been a die hard fan up until this point, but I have not seen so much as a single positive review, aside from some feminist rants about how great it is to see female figures of authority that had nothing to do with the actual season.

    Best Thanksgiving Recipes?

    Some people use like 2 TBPS of kosher salt and don't rinse it off. I'm pretty sensitive to overly salty foods, so I either wipe it down with a damp cloth or do a quick rinse, and then immediately pat dry without issue. The skin still seems leathery before it's cooked. I like to lightly rub the skin with olive oil also which helps things brown even better.

    I have completely abandoned the wet brine in favor of a 24 hour dry brine. Every bird (chicken or otherwise) I've done with a dry brine has been absolutely perfect. I spatchcock the bird, salt the shit out of the exterior, and sprinkle with baking powder. I leave uncovered in the fridge for 24 hours, then remove the salt and baking powder. Pat the bird dry, stuff butter (softened, seasoned) under the breasts and thighs, then bake. It cooks faster, is the juiciest bird I've ever had (and I normally HATE white meat), and the skin comes out perfectly crispy (in part due to the baking powder).

    It passes as one, because the chair legs rock and the table makes a "ticking" noise anytime somebody bumps it. Little noises like that (car rattles, refrigerator noise, etc.) drive me absolutely batshit crazy, so I can tolerate it. New table will have no glass or metal legs...

    Today is Mrs. Supe's and my anniversary. Thankfully we have opted to forgo the stupid gifts and agreed to just go out and buy a new kitchen table, which we were in need of.

    I lost my fantasy week miserably. I feel like there is a secret society that controls the outcome of these games just so the bookies make a killing.

    That's the whole point.

    The Baking Thread

    Strangely enough, my grandmother used to get buckwheat pancake mix from a friend, and they were the best pancakes I've ever had. I never was able to figure out what brand the mix was after she passed, and after trying three or four, just gave up looking.
