When vigilance fails... How to survive the holidays

It is THAT time of the year. You know... Big fat chicken named after a country time. Also time for the relative with the best of intentions and the least of understanding to accidentally poison your four legged. It happens.

How about avoiding that whole scene and printing this list? Print the list, put it on your bulletin board so that everyone who is in attendance can check the board before they share food with your four legged.

I'm getting really jealous of your big fat chicken named after a country day. Do you think it would be wrong for us to celebrate again, even though our Big Chicken day was last month?

Kol, I believe you should join the celebration by duplicating our holiday. In fact, do it Southern style. I like some of the side things as much as the big chicken. Momma has this shrimp salad that is to die for as an appetizer, dressing, and stuffing because some two leggeds are just greedy, all sorts of veggies, and breads and punkin pie,and pumpkin cheesecake and apple tart and dessert district..., wait, I almost forgot. I am supposed to give you a message from my momma. She says to tell you that while she loves to cook, her heiny does not necessarily belong in a kitchen. It belongs wherever she wants to be. She said I should tell you that her feet love Manolos, LV, Stuart Weitzman, and a whole bunch of other names I forgot. She also said that you were starting to sound like a llittle Miss Oginist. Who is she anyway?
Back to big chicken named after a country. We got one that is 28 lbs. momma said it is big enough for you to join us.
Momma only eats the liver. I know....weird woman. She has brined the sucker, she has massaged it injected it and has perfumed it with herbs. All I can say is... If you are a big chicken named after a country you get a lot of attention around here...of course...the downside is...it all ends with you in a very hot box. Not worth it. I love the gravy. I love my turkey drowned in gravy...my mouth is leaking,,, and the next day, in honor of Candada, we drown French fries and turkey bits in gravy and instead of curds, we use buffalo mozzarella. Familiar? Poutin, momma says. Canada? Really? Not Candada? But Candada sounds bigger and better! Kol, party on, eat some more big fat chicken named after a country. Next year we are going to join your big fat chicken day and party, you do the same! Fair is fair ;)
