When I was a young man I didn’t know how to cook and used to rely upon others to feed me and feed me well. When I was hungry I was at the mercy of these people to make me a meal. I had a very 1950s relationship with food and I was a greater man because of it.
And then a few years ago I was thinking to myself “Fly, you are a master ace stock trader — you can do anything and anything at all.” So then I began a long journey of becoming a master chef by way of Youtube. Gone are the days of having to visit cooking school and pay for classes. Nowadays you can learn a lot more simply by watching YouTube, which is what I did and now I am a master chef. Along that process, I’ve also become a master bartender, or mixologist — and am able to concoct just about any dish or drink in existence.
What does this have to do with Thanksgiving? Well, I will tell you. This being the Super Bowl of cooking, Master Chef Fly will be presiding over the kitchen today, making masterful dishes using masterful techniques. Since I do not drink booze anymore, I have no need for my mixologist skillset, and will leave those skills idle and instead re-activate my barista talents — which were acquired about a decade ago.
On the menu today is turkey, but not a whole turkey but two turkey breasts — because only savages eat dark meat. Also, I am making my world renowned sage sausage stuffing, green beans, candied sweet potatoes, cranned berried sauce, mashed potatoes, corn, and copious amounts of gravy. Last night I made a pumpkin pie and will be eating it throughout the day.
As for the holiday shopping season is concerned, dare I suggest buying 10 copies of Fly’s two short books? They’re instant classics, written by me with care, detailing my life as a young punk stockbroker during the dot com mania.
