Happy Thanksgiving, everybody. Let me see, by a show of hands, how many of you took the bird out of the freezer a few days ago because you remembered that a frozen turkey needs a couple of days to defrost? Hmmm. Most of you.

Save the bird for Christmas — Only please remember to remove it from the freezer about December 21. Comment.
