It’s Not Like I Beat My Kids With It…

All righty then. Murphy’s Law is alive and well as evidenced by my missing turkey baster. Each and every time I even think about making a turkey, my son, using his eerie powers of perception, pilfers my baster and hides it somewhere special, a place that defies all laws of physics, logic, and God. There is a place in my home harboring approximately fifteen turkey basters, and damned if I know where it is.

Well, guess it’s “suck up the turkey juices with a straw” time again. Sounds gross, but honestly, burned mouth aside, it does make for a fine, crispy skin. When my guests compliment me on the delicious bird tomorrow, I shall smile with blistered lips and say not a word. So, shhhhh. It’s our little secret.

Have a fun weekend, everyone.

I can think of only one other use for a turkey baster and I'm not going there.

Although when the girls were little, mine kept disappearing because they used it for mud pies and other cooking.

I haven't basted a turkey in years. Laziness - I throw it in a browning bag.

I have eaten so much for dinner today that I am afraid to move. Tomorrow, I will do the same. Happy weekend!

I think my Easter dinner will consist of beer and cold pizza.

At least, I HOPE there's beer involved.

Happy Bunny/Jesus day!

Ann, you naughty girl, you. ;-) And a browning bag, eh? Sounds like a good idea.

Leenie, four o'clock. Light beer, please. ;-) Happy Easter to you too, luv.

G-Man, have a great day!

Joshie, c'mon over with the wife, bring the beer, and I'll feed you till you pop. I promise you, my stuffing will make you weep with joy. Happy Jesus Bunny Day!

Good to revisit and find you as much fun as ever. Hi, girlfriend.

David, what a precious little girl! I swear on the Easter Bunny, she's the spitting image of me when I was that age. How weird! Same little nose, same blonde hair, same intense expression -- and I've worn glasses since the age of eighteen months. She's gonna be a knockout, mark my words. :-) And is that your artwork, dear? ;-) Lovely.

Bev! Sooooo good to see you here! I've missed you! (((HUG)))

Yep, she's a doll...so, you're saying you're a knockout? (heh).

The artwork, yes...all mine, I'm afraid.

LOL! David, I bow before your greatness.

And yes, I certainly am. Well, I used to be, anyway, before I bore four children and turned into a glibgoreous hag. ;-) ;-) ;-)

She really is beautiful, though...

I say we all pitch in and buy a case of turkey basters for Miz Lori so she can hide them all about the house...if nothign else it will drive the basterhating youngin' batty trying to find them all and hide them (lol).

Lori, seriously, I don't know whether to be totally freaked out that you can continuously suck boiling juices through a straw... or be totally turned on!

Maybe if you described the process a little more...

[slap!]

...or not!

I'm with David. I'm ording twenty right now. What's your shipping address, L?

 
At 3:51 PM, Blogger Ms. Lori said...

David, when I read your first line, I got all excited...Thought you were going to say buy Miz Lori a case of BEER!

Ah well, it's the thought that counts.

Jas, I am forced, for the second time this month, to call you Piggy Boy. LOL!

P.S. I'll send you my address if you promise to substitute the basters for beer. You would forever be my HERO BOY. ;-)

Hmmm maybe Lori would be more FUN after a case of beer...we could wave our hands and say - FORGET BRAD...FORGET TOM....(lol)
