SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Turkey Twister

A joyful trio of well-dressed, well-pressed gents entangle themselves carving a parsley garnished roast tom turkey centered on the Christmas dinner table. Mini Santa's in boxes, an upside down bowl-shaped jellied cranberry sauce mold in a tall green-stemmed glass, and the ladies are all watching.

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Turkey Bye Bye

This slide isn’t about the black of night, the turquoise curtains, the honey blond cupboards, the kitchen counter or what’s scattered all over it. Neither is it about the proud, proper turkey carver, nor the horn-rimmed snooty sophisticate with red painted lips and oven mitt to match.

This slide is about that delicious golden butter brown roast tom turkey. He’s trying to wave goodbye while he still can!

Here’s to a HAPPY and HEALTHY THANKSGIVING 2011 to you and yours!!!
