Happy weekend, Shackers. Late Night Computing for November 16, 2012 lands in celebration.
Next Thursday is Thanksgiving, obviously. We're busy preparing in my household, but I can't help not have any interest. Usually I make a giant pig of myself. This year, on the other hand, I'm bored of our usual recipes. Do me a huge favor, Shack, and post links to your favorite Turkey day recipes. My family really needs to get out of the stale menu we have every year.
