Tofurkey needs to be sent away for a long long time and have a good think about what it’s done.

@Unca – I have found a Tofurkey gravy recipe for you:
1. Take one bottle of single malt scotch whiskey (preferrably Glenmorangie or Glenlivet)
2. Before cooking Tofurkey, sample whiskey for quality
3. Begin cooking Tofurkey as recommended
4. While Tofurkey is cooking resample whiskey for quality
5. Start working on your Mel Gibson Braveheart quotes
6. Repeat steps 4-5 until Tofurkey is cooked
7. Carefully seperate Tofurkey from any residue liquids
8. Place both Tofurkey and liquids in the trash
9. Finish the whiskey and regale your guests with your now-perfected ‘you can take my life but you canna take my freedom’ speech
10. Eat dessert
11. Fall asleep watching sports

Women on the Verge
Movie made me laugh
Memories long past

Hadn’t thought of that movie in a long time, and it made me grin at your mention of it.

BG: Are you sure that isn’t a bobble head turkey? It looks like the pres. is about to press on its head to see what happens.

Hey, a tradition is what you make it…

It turned out she had cooked it upside-down.”

Actually, I do that on purpose. Puting it upside down in an oven baking bag has the majority of the white meat in the brine. Cooking it upside down leaves the meat tender and moist, falling off the bone when finished cooking. There is a method to my madness. 😉
