A Feast For A Grim Milestone™

Well, ok, it's probably not much of a feast, but no matter! Tonight we join hands with our Swilling friend Tim Blair and celebrate 1000 Days of Plastic Turkey lore! Tim has honored the occasion with a a Turkey Roll of Fame for those who have done much to promote this tale; I took it upon myself to come up with ways to actually cook plastic turkeys, and serve them to my familly.

But first, what to drink? I was wandering around the liquor store the other day when I saw this:

My friends, you must all buy this wine. A lot of it. allow me to quote the label:

Patriot Red, Australian Red Wine

A toast to the Patriots of America and Australia

United in the pursuit of Freedom, Liberty and Justice

We raise our glass to you!

Blended by Simon Gilbert Wines, Apple Tree Flat, Mudgee, Australia. It only cost $9 and it was quite tasty. Buy this wine! Don't you question my patriotism; Drink it!

Now, on to the food! For the main course, I thought I'd try some grilled plastic Turkey with olives, pineapple and red pepper strips:

Update: Dessert is ready!

Dang, it's getting hot out here:

Hmm, I don't like my plastic Turkey medium rare, so we better let it go a little while longer

Well, I'll just have some more wine and chat with my beloved Bride in the kitchen. Oh shit! Look at the time! Better go check on dinner...


Good thing my Gobbler Gulag™ hasn't been raided yet by those damn Plastic Edible Turkey Advocates!

Yo quiero Taco Plastico!

Mmmmm, tasty!

Now what to have for dessert...


Plastic turkey jello!

Boy! That hits the spot!

You are a dedicated man. I couldn't have handled the burnt plastic smell.

Did you email this to Blair? His site is loading too slowly today to check it.

Was the wine any good?

Yeah, but tim's too busy blowing up lebanese ambulances with depleted plutonium spitballs to cook any plastic turkeys.

The wine was quite good, Sharon, especially for the $9. Very full bodied.

You're nuts. Funny, but nuts.

I've still got dessert at home in the fridge; I'll post that tonight. It wasn't ready before I went to bed last night.

See this is why I like this blog so much - sick sick humor.

I think I'll just have the wine. Though I am fascinated with the plastic turkey gelatin. I'm going to try that with my plastic halloween spiders
