Thanksgiving 2012 - it's a wrap

A perfect late Autumn day for Thanksgiving 2012.

The day always starts with baking. Everything I make for Thanksgiving is strictly from scratch - is there any other way?

The menu is planned and iterated throughout the week. I actually start cooking on Monday. to get a jump.

This year will feature two Heritage House birds around 18 lbs. They are very flavorful but require special care in cooking. One will be braised lightly. The other spatchcocked and grilled. Both brined and rubbed. One spicy. One hot.

The whole bird in its sauna-like braise.

The Spatchcocked Turkey was amazing.

A sampling of the dishes and wines.

A happy crowd.

Me striking my best Iron Chef pose.

And the best part of Thanksgiving: the next day. I bake a special rustic country white bread for this.

Cheers!

Auto insurance is mandatory for people with a vehicle, but shop around to get the best deal. If you borrow to buy a new car, you'll be required to carry full coverage, but if you have an older car that is worth less, you might want to consider reducing your coverage levels to save money on your premium. Thanks.

Place your reconstituted grape concentrate or your grape juice, or the crushed grapes with their juice into your plastic buckets or barrel. Add yeast, and let wine sit for around 10 days. Thanks.

Real estate sales is a business that is often paid only on commissions. Therefore, income is solely based on the number of deals a salesperson can close. In a business where only a small percentage of leads turn into closed deals, it is crucial to gain as many leads as possible. Prospecting is key to a successful real estate career. Here are a few helpful steps that will help you attract potential buyers. Thanks. Regards,

Assess your communication skills and your ability to be an effective sales person. A career in insurance requires someone who can communicate well in person and on paper, is zealous about networking, is diligent about record-keeping and staying abreast of market trends and insurance products and is a self-starter when it comes to finding new clients. Thanks. Regards,

Cash-strapped and budget-conscious consumers continuously look for ways to trim their daily living expenses, particularly as food prices keep rising. Food prices are affected by economic and other sometimes invisible factors, and although you cannot directly affect costs at the beginning of the food chain, you can use money-saving techniques to keep your spending in line. Thanks a lot.

When the container is full, or if sediment starts to travel with the wine, stop the flow by holding the hose in a downward position and pinching a section of it. Thanks.

Pull the beets from the pot. Reserve the cooking liquid. Peel and chop the beets, pouring any juice that comes out of them back into the cooking liquid. Add the chopped beets back into the cooking liquid and let soak for at least four hours. Thanks a lot.

Avoid foods that are not beneficial for your health such as chips, canned foods, cookies and other junk foods. Many processed packaged foods contain too much sugar or salt and little or no nutrition. Some junk foods are also high in calories and fat as well. Completely avoid these types of foods. The Natural News website says that junk food contributes to teen obesity. Thanks a lot.

There are many conditions that can be induced or exacerbated by extra weight, including diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and certain types of cancers. Thanks a lot.

Most people eat out several times a week, so the notion of stockpiling food is a foreign concept. Grocery stores operate on the premise that most households only maintain a three-day supply of food, relying on the "just-in-time" delivery system to resupply only when the last of an item is purchased. Problem is, just-in-time could leave your family high and dry at the very moment you need those goods most. Thanks a lot.

The very first step in designing a muscle building plan of attack is to think about your dedication to the process. Almost every guy I come across will say that they seriously want to gain muscle size, hardly any of them are really willing to put in the hard work to make it happen. Before you start to think about going to the gym, you need to have a good idea of how many training sessions each week you can make it a habit to get into the gym, how much time you can set aside to be there for during each visit, and whether or not you can get serious about a bodybuilding nutrition program of some sort. While these things seem pretty simple and straightforward, they are the exact same things that most guys don't even consider before they jump into their muscle gaining programs.

When training, high reps and a good number of sets will show the best results. Fifteen lifts is a good number, with no more than a minute break between sets. This stimulates the release of lactic acid, which is a key component in muscle growth. Repeat this during your regular number of sets for optimum results in your muscle building routine. There are tricks to looking like you are bigger. You can focus on your upper chest and back, as well as your shoulders. This makes your upper body look bigger in proportion to your waist, which gives the illusion that you have a larger body.
