Simply Confounding!

Today, prompted by all the Christmas decorations that have been displayed at Costco for the past month, self decided to direct her thoughts towards the future.

For once, this was not about her writing, where is it going, etc

This was about

WHAT.  ARE.  WE.  GOING.  TO.  EAT.  NEXT.

Self bought two large bags of candy from Grocery Outlet —  pats on the back, they totaled less than $10.

Then, she directed her thoughts towards Thanksgiving.

For weeks —  no, months —  self has been debating whether she should try cooking a whole turkey, or settle for one of those pre-cooked turkey breasts that they sell in Honeybaked Ham (getting further and further away each year:  there used to be a branch in Belmont, that closed.  Then there used to be one in Town & Country shopping center at the corner of Embarcadero and El Camino.  That, too, closed.  Now the nearest Honeybaked store is all the way in south Palo Alto).

There will be no one coming for Thanksgiving.  No one.  Except for self of course, and The Man.  If he happens to be awake.

Therefore, self better take it easy with the orders.  Or she might explode after ingesting all those leftovers.

She has heard of the fabulous deep-fried turkey from Popeye’s.  This delectable item is especially popular among her Filipino friends.  The cost for a whole turkey is around $40.

But, last year, she remembered the long lines of people picking up pre-cooked turkeys at Gracie’s Delectables in San Carlos.  So, this afternoon, she decided to place an order.  Only to be met with this message on their website:

SORRY.  THE DEADLINE TO PLACE ORDERS HAS PASSED.

Nooooo!!!!

What gives, it is only the first week of October!!!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.

    I vote for the deep-fried turkey which my son makes – quite an operation and quite dangerous with the dogs and people milling around. Evacuate the area first. But delicious and not dry at all. SE Asians must have the same taste buds.

    Kyi, Bad Girl, you are making me huuungry! I went trolling the web and came up with this link for deep-fried “Cajun” turkey: http://www.yelp.com/topic/atlanta-popeyes-cajun-deep-fried-turkey
