Just wanted to wish a happy Thanksgiving to any & all who celebrate it. Personally, it's not my holiday, but I do love the 4 day weekend! Laughing

As a non-diurnal creature forced to live in a diurnal world, I am thankful for four days of not getting out of bed until I feel like it...like about mid-afternoon Very Happy

I have a fine bottle of Texas port waiting for me. I am thankful for that.

@ Quiff Boy....as I said, I'm only in it for the days off from work with pay. Don't eat turkey, though I will take stuffing, mashed potatoes & cranberries!

@Sultan2075....Texas port? Enlighten me, please. My guess would be some type of wine? I live in Texas & have never heard of it.

I had intended to spend the "holidays" giving thanks by spring-cleaning my apt in preparation for the arrival of some friends in 2 weeks, including an old old old friend from Poly that my mother is convinced is my MI5 handler Rolling Eyes .

However, last evening I met a delightful young lady who works for the same company and she has invited me to a gathering of her friends (one of whom has spent most of the day telling me that the lady in question has been telling her that she fancies me, so things may be looking up).

@EvilBastard...good for you! Enjoy! Cleaning can wait. Looks like you may be having a different type of bird for the holiday. Smile

I picked it up at the Su Vino winery in Grapevine (just outside Dallas, if you're not familiar with the area). They've got three or four wineries out there that make a quality product. Me likey Smile They also make some fine stuff down in the old German hill country, around Fredericksburg.

@sultan2075...have heard of Grapevine and since I'm only about 2hrs from Dallas, it might make for an interesting, little road trip. If I can find somebody to drive there Laughing Do they sell it in stores?

Try some traditional cookery to please this lass..
Or invite her to a restaurant if she loves asian dishes as much. Wink

By the way: Who knew about the tradition that politicians release one turkey from geting a holliday date with a hungry family? -Well, Sarah Palin gave an interview after. A one that again gave evidence of her clumsyness Laughing
Note: That video linked to displays animals´ deaths. Not for faint hearted.

I've never seen it in stores, only in the little winery itself. It makes for a nice trip, though, in the spring or fall. They've got a number of wineries, clustered around "downtown" Grapevine, and you can walk from one to another. The missus and I usually do it once or twice a year. They also do a wine festival that brings in winemakers from all over Texas, though if crowds aren't your thing, I'd avoid it. I think that's in September, though I might be wrong. We've gone once, and it was alright, but I prefer it when it's not horribly, horribly crowded.

That being said, the local booze emporium does stock a good amount of Texas stuff, like St. Genevieve and Llano. I recall being more impressed with the Llano wines. I haven't seen much of the Grapevine stuff outside of Grapevine, which is unfortunate.

If you're two hours to the south of Dallas, I'd also recommend trying to spend a day or two in the hill country, west of Austin. There are a number of good wineries down there.

Nodub Towers will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year.

The turkey has been prep-ed, the dining room prepared, and the dusty wines cleaned and brought up from the cellars.

Tomorrow, I'll be cooking, whilst Lady Dub acts the hostess.

Thankgiving is awesome. Its like a pre-Christmas, which announces the beginning of "avoid the mall" month.

Tomorrow promises to be a day full of kids, noise, boring discussions, and food. Yippee. Neutral
At least I get the day off (*without* pay, of course Evil or Very Mad), and I don't have to be up until at least 8 a.m. Hooray! Mr. Green

Did I mention the large batches of homemade sangria? Twisted Evil
