Happy Thanksgiving — Off To Cook a Mastery Meal

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.

Off to cook some meat.

    Happy Thanksgiving Dr. Real Fly! I do the same with YT. Will be enjoying this Thanksgiving with friends cuz my Dad passed away a week and a half ago. He was a career veteran that loved copious amounts of gravy! It’s too bad those of us that can’t handle the wonderful concoctions of alcohol, give their consumption by responsible connoisseurs, a bad name.

      A corrollary of sorts; we mustn’t disdain the activity we may not partake of. So have a few beers on hand even if you don’t touch for those who do still want.
      Have a great meal.

      Cancel 19, I understand. Mom’s not gone yet; visits are a weird pantomime of years past, Holidays, and new delusions. She has Dementia. She’ll be 98 in early February. In any state of being, I want her with me but between the Lawyers and fights with siblings, I am torn, May you have found some peace this Thanksgiving.

      My wish for all.

        Thank you and wish you well. Seeing our parents go through leaving us is very taxing on us and them. Sorry to hear that sibling rivalry is adding more stress. Hang in there knowing at least you are not alone. I’m experiencing some of that with my brother over my Dad’s possessions.

    My condolences cancel19 about your father.

    Happy Thanksgiving soupbone; and Fly that sounds like a delicious meal you are made today. Great idea about breasts and the side dishes sound fantastic.

    Here, my thanksgiving meal was a can of Hormel vegetarian chili and some saltines. Nothing is wrong, that’s just the way the day turned out. Will have a great meal another day, and really enjoying the holiday leisure time, even though I seem to have spent it doing yard work! 😉

    I have a sage stuffing too and yesterday it was the big hit of our Thanksgiving dinner, along with cooking turkey breast in a Romertopf. My sage recipe includes Bob Evans’ sage sausage, does yours? It can be tough to find this time of year. Hope you and your family had a great day.
