Happy Thanksgiving!

One of my favorite clips, from the classic Thanksgiving episode of the always great WKRP in Cincinnati.

And here are some of the greatest Thanksgiving recipes I´ve ever seen, from THE AWL (but linked to by me with care) to help you further enjoy your day. For example, here´s an exerpt from 'Stop Being a Wuss: How To Make Pie Crusts the Easy Way':

1. Put a bag of flour in the fridge and two sticks of butter in the freezer. Go gloat about your superiority and complain about how hard you're working and smoke or read for a little while.

2. Put about 2 and a half cups of flour in a cold bowl. ABOUT. The thing is, it doesn't matter! Who has time and energy to measure things?

3. Put something more than a teaspoon but something less than a tablespoon of salt in the flour. That is like "three pinches." It doesn't really matter how much! Saltiness offsets sweetness! People, who are animals, like salt!

4. Put about the same amount of sugar in the flour! Give or take! IT DOESN'T MATTER.

Don´t ask me why all recipes aren´t written that way.

Have a great Thanksgiving!
