Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving and enjoys the holiday. I am going to eat some lovely lamb and turkey and revel in no longer being a vegetarian--I would not eat meat from the time I was twelve until about six years ago--don't know what I was thinking. Happy Holiday!

UPDATE: Here's a picture of me with a politically correct turkey! It's an ice-cream cake from Baskin-Robbins.

We're having duck instead of turkey.

I'm a vegetarian, but not an animal rights fanatic type one, or, more to the point, any fanatic type one. If I "cheat" and decide to declare Thanksgiving an off day, I figure my system can handle it. Don't be afraid to go veg, Gina. It's just a choice, and you can make or unmake it depending on your personal level of commitment. Relax and enjoy your food.

Hi Gina,

I started eating meat after I had a heart attack--I felt kind of cheated that I had tried to be so healthy and it backfired. I don't know if being a vegetarian had anything to do with heart problems, of course, but I went back to eating meat, stopped exercising so much and quit a lot of my stressful work and do feel better.

I think being a vegetarian is fine--just make sure you get enough iron etc. as red meat seems to be a good source.

You started craving real meat after you married instapundit. That must mean something.

congrats on what looks like a fine family feast; now I see that the photogenic Helen resembles Andie McDowell, so can we consider Glenn to be the weatherman from "Groundhog Day" who finally found his destiny ? Fortunately, your appreciation of life is now as great as any heroine in a story.........God's Blessings on your family.

All I can say is that you must be quite a person for Glenn to have married you in spite of the vegetarianism. That would seem to be quite a hurdle for a carnivore.

Wow! A Baskin-Robbins ice cream cake turkey! Yet I believe that Dr. Reynolds prepared lamb as well (aside: my wife's family once raised spring lambs to be eaten later---to my city bred horror---and calmly named them Tasty and Delicious). The traditional and the artificial, mixed well!

Happy Thanksgiving to all, and a moment of prayer for friends and relatives in harm's way at this time.

Hi Mr. Blair,

Yes the lamb was tasty and delicious--sorry for the horrible flashback to the spring lambs. If you now have PTSD from the horrible fate of your wife's families lambs, I hope you will get some help. Hope everyone had a great holiday.

Baskin-Robbins is "politically correct"? Stealing milk from cows in the most uncomfortable manner possible, larding up our arteries with butterfat (fill in your own vegan diatribe stuff here, I'm too bloated with the "fruits" of carnivorism to continue) all to satisfy the racist Western Imperialist urge to gluttony....

But, since I am the beef guy (all birds are foul), this is clearly the finest possible form of turkey.

Hi Dr. Helen:

I'm glad that you feel my pain over PTSLS (post traumatic spring lamb syndrome). I was just being a big wuss about my food, but at least you and I have dignified that attitude and helped me to create an afflicted group status.

Where is my Federal set aside program?

Notice that my horror at lamb-carnivory didn't drive me to vegetarianism! My father was raised on a farm and has given me grief for years on this subject.

My in-laws have gotten me to eat lamb in recent years, but I took the moral high road and ignored the mint jelly, which is clearly a Communist plot.

The Spring Lambs story is quite true, even if I could come up with a "Silence of the Spring Lambs" parody.

Happy Thanksgiving, again...

What's your favorite way of preparing the lamb? Being from Chicago, I almost always cook it Grecian style. (smothered in herbs and garlic then slow roasted)

Hi--my husband cooks the lamb and has a recipe at --you can find it there.

Mr Blair

Some pigs are more equal than others!

And this one was quite exceptional with a half keg of Michelob Ultra -the only beer that pours perfectly from keg.
