No one in our family likes turkey. In addition, our kids will not eat beef most of the time. So we have to come up with options for the holidays. My last edition of the ChefWannabee newsletter covered this in more detail. But it looks like ham for Thanksgiving and probably a pasta salad as a backup if they don't like the ham options. Of course my selection would be prime rib. So my wife and I had an early Thanksgiving diner last weekend with prime rib and trimmings.

Kathleen has been talking for about 2 months about doing HER Thanksgiving dinner. It has been a few years since she has made it because we have traveled for the holiday. This year she has been planning her dinner, and I have been looking forward to eating it and watching football.

She has come down sick and since last week.

Today I got a duck. I offered to do a turkey, but she wants to do one (maybe next weekend).

Yay roast duck!

Just picked up some fresh Oysters this evening and some local shrimp. I'm thinking of Steaming the oysters and having Shrimp Alfredo on angel hair pasta on Turkey Day. I'm not sure what veggie. Maybe Grilled Asparagus.

Ok.. so my plans changed.

I bought a duck that was a frozen block, and while I have plenty of time to thaw it, it is now in the freezer.

I picked up a fresh duck for Thursday. So the real change in plans is not thawing out a duck.

I woke up at 3 this morning, remembering I hadn't pulled the ground beef and pork from the freezer. Yes, I got up anyway after trying to go back to sleep. They are now sitting on the counter, should be thawed after 10 hours at work.
