Happy Thanksgiving weekend! Hopefully you were able to eat copious amounts of food like I was. This Thanksgiving was especially awesome because we were able to piggyback on the Thanksgiving plans of Diane's sister's husband's family (triple apostrophe!) up in Idaho Falls. In total, I think there were about 30 of us, and we had a great time. My favorite part of the night was when my father-in-law Ben taught me how to carve the turkey like Chef Emeril Lagasse (It made me feel very manly). Usually I get grossed-out by the thought of touching slimy dead animals with my bare hands, but this time it was a badge of honor to learn from the best.
While we were there, turkey wasn't the only meat we consumed. On Friday night, Diane and her parents also ate some king crab legs (I'm not a seafood lover, so I opted for leftovers instead). King crab is a very rare treat and Diane describes it as an "out-of-body experience". Hey, at least now I know what to get her for Christmas.
