I’m not sure where we’ll be eating tomorrow—I’ll let the kids decide that—but wherever it is, I’ll probably be eating turkey. Nope, on this holiday I usually don’t think outside the box. There are some traditions I like and eating turkey on thanksgiving is one of them.
Writer Richard Ford and his wife usually have a goose on Thanksgiving. I found this out when I first interviewed Mr. Ford around that time of year in 2004—10 years ago. Man, that’s hard for me to believe. We started talking about how to prepare a goose and I turned that into a column in March the following year. Yep, I prepared my first goose in early 2005.
In that photo to the left, that’s me and another goose I cooked—this one when I was living in the Westwood area in Cincinnati. So far, I haven’t prepared a goose here in Covington, Kentucky. I’m going to try and change that in the year 2015.
Regardless of what you eat, I hope tomorrow is whatever you want it to me. I shall return here on Friday.
