My demise, Pineapple Beach House on Nook & Kobo, Book Deals

It’s been wonderful…

Well, it’s been wonderful knowing you all, but I’m afraid this will be my last post.

My brother is making the Christmas turkey this year.

While I appreciate the break from serving as holiday chef, my brother has given himself salmonella/food poisoning no less than three times in the past, so I’m pretty sure this more like Easter than Christmas… because I’m about to have my last supper.  

He did a test turkey. My mother asked him how it went and he said “it was edible” which doesn’t bode well for two reasons. First, “it was edible” could be said about shoe leather. And second (and more importantly), “it was edible” probably means it was overcooked, which means he’ll cook it less for Christmas and… refer to first paragraph.

I hope you all have super wonderful holidays, and please remember me fondly!

    The story about your brothers cooking “skills” gave me a good laugh. Happy Holidays.


  2. Maz

    Well Amy, it has been nice knowing you :-D… I wish you all the luck in the world to survive the Christmas turkey lol. Have a safe and wonderful holiday, Merry Christmas to you and yours from me and mine .

    Tell him to brine the turkey. Alton Brown has the best brine recipe and I use it every year. Not only does it make the turkey taste delicious, it also has the added value of the salt making it antimicrobial. For insurance purposes go, make some frozen herb butter and cut rounds of that off before cooking and slip under the skin. This will keep it from drying out, no matter what.
    But if you do get sick, then at least you know a good reading website to keep you occupied as you make your 15th trip to the bathroom.


  4. Suzannah

    Hahahah make sure your will is up to date…leaving your brother out of it.
    Merry Christmas! We shall remember you fondly.


  5. Maryann

  6. Hope Tirendi

    OMG that was too funny! Quick somebody help her brother. Happy Holidays to all.


  7. Marsha

    Have you thought of becoming vegan (at least until after Christmas dinner)?


  8. Tex Texas

    I’m still laughing at your note… I will say a Hail Mary as you sit down to eat and hope to hear from you again. If the first chew doesn’t feel right, excuse yourself go to the microwave and cook it a bit more. Rude? perhaps, but better than food poisoning. I’m sure all will be fine. It always is with family and a good bottle of wine. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
