This Christmas

This Christmas was great! For some people the holiday season is a very painful time. The has been true for me. However, this Christmas was different. I spent Christams Eve with friends and Christmas Day at my ma ma's house. To clarify, I call my mother ma and my grandmother ma ma.

I fried my first turkey this weekend! I kept remembering all the negative publicity about deep fat frying turkeys around Thanksgiving. The press noted such things as people burning their houses down and such. Anyway, it turned out they did not have enough oil. My aunt must not understand proportions. She had a 6 gallon deep fat frying turkey thingy but only one gallon of oil. Duh!! So, we drove all around Birmingham to find enough cooking to to fry the turkey. Needless to say the only places open for busines were the Quikie Mart type places and they only sold cooking oil in small quantities. Don't you hate it when people try to be cheap and in the end they end up spening more money thna they would have if they have hadn't been so cheap in the first place. AHGGGG!!!

We were supposed to eat dinner at 4 p.m. We didn't start frying until 3:30 or so and it took 45 minutes to cook. However, it turned out quite well. It was well seasoned, well done but not dry.

Hello Blogger
And G'day from Downunder. I was hunting around the web for stuff on how to cook salmon when I came across This Christmas. It's just amazing what these searches turn up. I'm not sure I'm finding what I need, but I'm having a lot of fun. Have a great day!
 
I have no idea what I'm doing here - I was actually looking for articles on rice. I guess I must have found a search engine with a sense of humor.

Still, no harm done. Just thought I'd say hello.
Best wishes
Michael
