Amanda stuffs our Christmas bird ... bacon-and-maple-coated turkey that wss deeeeelicious.
Today marks a weird spot on the calendar for me. It’s one of those landmarks that really doesn’t mean anything, other than to illustrate the weirdness of time and how we feel it. As of today, my son Gordon has been without his mother longer than he was with her. The length of time Amanda has been gone is now longer than the length of time we were a family of three. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long, but that dangblasted calendar tells me it’s almost three years. I have not said a word about it to G, but tonight, for the first time in a long time, he pulled out the Missing Mummy book for bedtime. Today was my last day in broadcasting for a while, as far as I can tell. I spent the past five years as Program Director at Newstalk 1290 CJBK in London, Ontario. And in recent years, I was also the noon-hour show host, afternoon news anchor, a commercial voice guy, TV news promo voice guy, and more. Also in the past five years, I’ve bought a house, endured renovation
Why do I look so terrible on video??ReplyDelete
Mmmmm Bacon! What a great idea! I will try that next year! I'm sure it was good. would your better half be from the east coast as well? Only a newfie or a facilmile there of would put bacon on their turkey! Maybe instead of bread I'll use the Purity Hard Biscuits (Brews) and stuff the bird with that. Thanks for sharing that video.ReplyDelete
No, sir, she's a Northern Ontario girl. I did live with a newf for a while, and she also cooked up some good grub, but nothing as simultaneously healthy and delicious as what Amanda does.ReplyDelete
The maple-bacon-turkey recipe was presented in the most recent version of the Compliments (Sobeys) version of the Insider Report. It actually called for maple bacon, an apple stuffing, and chili powder on the bird. All we did different than usual was wrap the beast in bacon and wipe some maple syrup on it toward the end.
