cooking tips

My friend Ann
emailed me a nice recipe

Jen this recipe is made just for you...
Make sure you read it to the end.

Here is a turkey recipe that also includes
the use of popcorn as a stuffing -- imagine that.
When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect
for people like me, who just are not sure how to tell
when poultry is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out.
Give this a try.

8 - 15 lb. turkey
1 cup melted butter
1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is Good.)
1 cup uncooked popcorn

Salt/pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Brush turkey well with melted butter salt & pepper.
Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn.
Place in baking pan with the neck end
toward the back of the oven.

Listen for the popping sounds.
When the turkey's ass blows the oven door open
and the bird flies across the room, it's done.

And, you thought you couldn't cook...
Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Happy Holidays Kids!

guest post

And now..
a guest post from
my good buddy
Angela A.K.A 2 fools


June 15, 1983

Jen and I were reminiscing about the good times, which,
like pepper on an egg, are pretty far and few between...
My son's tenth birthday was yesterday and he said,
"I bet you don't remember what you got for YOUR tenth birthday, do you?"
I told him I was pretty sure I was always old and crippled and never
had a tenth birthday. The truth is, I did have a tenth birthday.
It was a birthday I'll never forget
(partly because our friend, Jen, won't ever let me forget it). see... I had a special kind of dad. When I was a kid I thought
he was deaf because he was always yelling. My step-mom said it was
because he had a "hair across his ass" But, I know it was really because
he was very tired from the long hours he worked on the couch.
He was a pro surfer. Anyway, picture a white-haired, scowling, madman,
who rarely smiled (and rarely wore a shirt)
(Should we attach a picture, yes, lets)

So, the story goes that Angela had a 10th birthday party and
invited all of her little fifth grade friends, Jen included (because of course,
she was my best friend)
. I had a Carvel cake with a picture of Michael
Jackson's Thriller album cover on it (the side where he's in the white suit not
the other side.)
That was about the girliest thing about this party, was that
I had a Michael Jackson cake. See, Jen and I were the "girly" types
back then...we didn't really play with dolls or whatever, we played with
electronics and drew Bixbies (cartoons) and make videos with the
PXL 2000, but we were NOT girly-girls. "What do you want for your
birthday" they'd said... "A Diamond-Back" I wanted that BMX bike so
bad I could taste it. You could ride it in the woods, ride it fast, go over
jumps...oh yeah, what I really wanted was a Diamond Back. So, yeah,
we're having this party outside in the backyard - having a blast I'm sure,
opening gifts and whatnot, and all I remember my father saying
"Angela - Get me a facecloth" and I'm thinking, "Jesus, buddy -
I'm entertaining guests over here, can't you get it yourself?"
But instead I say, "Why?" and he yells,
(which Jen said scared her, by the way)

So I go into the bathroom and open the shower curtain, and there,
before my very eyes is the most devastating present I could have
gotten on my tenth birthday, "Take it outside and show your friends"
I'm thinking, "Oh god. No, not that, please, anything but that."
and just as I'm doing everything I can to stall my embarrassment,
Jen walks in to see what's taking so long and sees my shame:
No, no, folks - it's the Diamond Back I so longed for, the bike I learned
the "Act of Contrition" for so that I could be sure all of my sins were
absolved before I prayed every night for it... instead, what lies behind
the curtain is none other than Benny's special of the week:
a 1983, Girls' Bike called, "PEACHES N' CREAM"
whose main attraction was it's HUGE banana seat sporting a picture
of a bowl of peaches, and giant chain guard with the same picture,
only this one had the bike's name written out in whipped cream,
"PEACHES N' CREAM". I thought I would die of embarrassment until
I look up and see Jen's face, who's practically in tears laughing at this
monstrosity rolling out of my back door, and instead of feeling bad for me,
she yells, "RIDE IT!" "RIDE IT! RIDE IT!" I had every excuse in the book
- but then was forced to drive this hunk of junk down the street in front of
all my friends and neighbors.

similar to this.
but peach colored..

If that wasn't bad enough, the god damned handlebars fell off while
I was riding it - throwing Jen into a fitted rage of laughter... Thanks, Jen.
Thanks for always having my back during the tough times.
I sure do appreciate your support. This is why I never called her from jail,
because she'd probably show up with Channel 10 and a dozen witnesses.
I'M SELLING TO THE ENQUIRER!" hahahahahahahahhaha

And to top it all off - Angela A.K.A 2fools
Just emailed me the greatest poem ever written:

Happy Birthday, my dearest pal
for the friend you were and are right now.
When I needed you most, you were right down the street!
When my parent's starved me, your mom let me eat.
Milkbread and lemonade was all I had-
but dinner at your house was MEATBALLS AND SALAD!
We laughed at the table, your dad got pissed off
"YOU'LL CHOKE" he would say, "Now KNOCK IT OFF!"
Holidays were rarely a joy, so I'd trot down to your house
to make a gingerbread boy.
Remember the time we went to your Aunts?
"Let's go sledding!" you said, "Me in the back, you in the front!"
"OH SHIT!" I said. "This hill's too high, If we go down it, my friend, we'll surely die"
"Don't be a baby!" You evilly grinned, "I'll give us a push and then I'll jump in"
Off like a rocket we flew off the cliff, no way to steer, I was scared stiff!
" in the front" echoed again - "I'll kill her" I thought "once we get to the end"
But we squeaked through the branches of every white birch, escaped with our lives
and didn't get hurt!
We stopped dead on a stump and busted our rocket,
and laughed as we limped in the house for hot chocolate.
Oh the good times we shared, my best friend and I
I'm glad we both made it to see 35.
We're still just as cute and funnier still
and not a day more mature than when we were just girls.
We're older but wiser and still just as close - so raise your glass all you Slackers
and let's make a toast!
To The Greatest Blog of All Time, no writer can beat her!
Happy Birthday, Jen - from your best friend and readers :)
We love you!
