Yes, a week to-day. Hard to believe. We celebrate both (Mom is American)
1996 Fiddlehead Cellars Pinot Noir, Oregon
2001 Sandhill Barbera, Okanagan Valley BC
1996 Paul Anheuser Riesling Spatlese KK
2005 Vineland Estates "Elevation" Riesling, Niagara
1991 Hillebrand Vidal Late Harvest, Niagara
Nov 22 we'll focus on Calif and Oregon.
P.S. The turkey is from North Carolina.
We spend the day at my wife's parents, and we are usually stuck drinking their Blackstone Cabernet. This year however, we'll be bringing a few nice pinot noir's, as well as a magnum of Tobin James Ballistic Zinfandel. I can't wait to see the family get rocked off the high alcohol content Tobin. LOL! Gotta love this fruit bomb though! Old Toby is quite the Cowboy, but he sure does make some tasty wines, even though a few of them are over the top!

I will be at work, thinking that if I had just stayed in Canada, I'd be having turkey with family. I'd be much poorer, pay more in taxes, but I'd still be having turkey and having a Tim Horton's double/double Smile

I have a 2003 Sea Smoke set aside for the US TG and will probably just have a Wiser's manhattan Monday as a nod to the folks back home.

Sure wish we had some '03's still lying around! Big Grin

Among the wines I'll be drinking will be at least a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau.

It's kind of like those green bean casseroles with the fried onions on top. You serve it not because it's the best tasting thing on the planet, but because it's simply part of the tradition.

Also, it happens to work pretty well, IMHO, with the culinary variety show that is the typical modern Thanksgiving menu.

Is there anybody else out there who hates turkey?


I can't say that I *hate* it, but I'd much rather have porchetta.

The best part of turkey is the stuffing my Dad makes - bread and pork sausage with sage and other herbs. None of the pine nuts, cranberry, apple, or carrot stuff.
