I say the earlier the better. Then you can just nap, watch football, eat, nap, etc all day long.

I guess thats true. We usually leave around 4 or so, so if I am home earlier I am stoked.

EDF Chefs:

I have a couple of favorite desserts that I enjoy making. One is a standard cheesecake, and the other is a key lime pie. I am considering combining them this year, but I don't want to make a single recipe of each and just mix them together, as that will just be too much. I'm looking for suggestions on how to alter one/both so I can just fold the key lime filling into the cheesecake batter.

Cheesecake:
3 - 8 oz packages cream cheese
1.25 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 pint sour cream
1 cup whipping cream

KLP:
3 egg yolks
1 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
2/3 cup lime juice

---

Eyeballing the total volume, my inclination is to leave the KLP recipe as is, and reduce the sugar in the cheesecake recipe to .5 cup, remove 2 eggs and all of the sour cream.

What do y'all think?

PITTM, my attitude has been:

"HEY LOOK FLOYD, HITCHICKERS!"

"PICK' EM UP!"

Sapo,

I've used that brine recipe for the last few years and it always works out great.

Good Eats turkey

More on brining: http://bbq.about.com/cs/turkey/a/aa110103a.htm

I brine a 10-12 pound turkey overnight.

My 15 year old daughter and I will be getting up at approximatly 9am, leaving at 10am to drive from Kingman to Phoenix. We will meet my Mom and her new husband at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak, enjoy a scrumptious (ie expensive) buffet and then head to the Sun Devil Stadium in order to cheer on our Devils vs. USC.

Once we win, we'll take the husband and daughter to the hotel and then Moms and I will be going clubbing to celebrate our invite to the Rose Bowl.

(All of this if the day is perfect, ldo)

I plan on driving around to find a Mexican place and then getting a California Burrito.

I have no family out here, which is fine because I hate Thanksgiving anyway. I don't eat any of the food.
