But when I turned the TV on at noon, it was still set on Food Network and they were just starting their Thanksgiving Live call-in show. But what amused me was that Bobby Flay and Giada Di Laurentiis were both wearing glasses. Alton Brown doesn't count, as he's a known four-eyes. (grin) Guess it was rather early to stab your eyes with contacts on a bright television set -- and as a live show it would be less controlled than a regular episode taping. And it's a Saturday. Still, I thought it was amusing.
Poll question: To brine or not to brine the turkey? Wet brine 58%, dry brine 17%, No brine 25%. We did a wet brine of Turkey thighs and wings -- both of us being dark meat aficionados -- and it worked so well last year, we plan on it again this year. Also video of Bobby Flay trying to deal with a turkey blazing bright with flames in the oven -- it doesn't always go right even for the pros. (double-turkey-grin)
Oh, and some caller on Skype said to Bobby, keep the glasses on, they look great. So I'm not the only nut in America who noticed. Through my glasses.
