  2. Oooh. That's my kind of turkey. I'll take the dark meat with the white meat interior.

    1. Just a moment as I sharpen up the carving knife, Mitchell.

  3. Probably healthier than a meal with all the trimmings.

  4. Hi, Kirk!

    Is that a thing? If so, it's new to me. I'm sure this alternative T-giving feast is not only delicious, but also quite nutritious. Just think, a million real turkeys are breathing a little easier this Thanksgiving.

    Have a safe and happy one, good buddy Kirk!

    1. True, Shady, though the nation's cows must be working overtime to produce all the creamy middles.

  5. Hello Kirk, These are cute. Apparently, the best idea is to make decorations out of the Oreos and have something else for dessert, although not pumpkin pie, which I detest. --Jim

    1. Jim, I like pumpkin pie as long as it is buried in whipped cream.

  6. They made those at church one year. So adorable. But the little kids wanted to play with them rather than eat them!

    1. JM, that may be one solution to our nation's children's obesity problem.

    1. Oh, Mike, you wouldn't say that if you knew the history behind candy corn, and how it's especially relevant to Thanksgiving. Let me see if I can refresh your memory:

      To escape religious persecution, the Pilgrims sailed on the Mayflower to the New World. After arriving at Plymouth Rock, they decided to throw a feast as a way of giving thanks. They invited a friendly tribe of Indians to this feast. The Indians brought a sack of little yellow vegetables that the transplanted Europeans had never seen before, what we now call corn. Wolfgang Wonka, who had been the chef on the Mayflower, took one look at this corn and said, "You know, I brought a sack of sugar over from England. Let me see what happens if I mix the two together." So Wolfgang put the corn and the sugar into a big pot. He set a fire underneath and stirred, and then let simmer for a while. Finally, he took a ladle and swooped out a bunch of yellow-orange-and-white rounded triangles, what we today call candy corn. After letting them cool off for a few minutes, he called the Indians over and said, "Here, colonized indigenous people, try some of these and tell me what you think."

      History's first Indian-settler war broke out shortly thereafter.

  9. They look good. Never tried candy corn - not a thing in Scotland! Oreos, well yes they are popular sort of.

    Hope you have a good one and can enjoy as much as possible!

    Haha I laughed at your comment! Of course they are my hands, always been my hands that are star of the show ;-)

  10. Ananka, if anyone ever tries to import candy corn into Scotland, I suggest you lobby the government to impose a high a tariff as possible.

    Also, I'm pleased you found my comment amusing (in case anyone wonders what we're talking about, I left a comment on Ananka's nail polish blog ["Economy Nails"], which can be found somewhere in the blogroll ["Surf City"] to the right.)
