Easter turkey -no politics today

I have a million and one things I want to discuss, but this one is time sensitive. 

We have the D.C./Virginia marches coming up, I want to tell you about our 2,700 mile tour through Montana and Nevada with five kids and three dogs,



also I've been drafting up a post on the health-care bill from the prospective of someone who has only once used health insurance; just a lot going on but today's emergency post is about how to be a turkey hero. 
 


This will be quick;

1. Soak your turkey in ice water and two cups kosher salt for 12 hours.

2. Inject the shit out of it with butter.

3. Cook it in a bag (a cooking bag, obviously, and no, dry cleaner bags are not an acceptable replacement.)

4. Put celery stalks under the turkey, inside the bag so you can lift it easier because it will be stuck when done.

5. Going from pan to platter will be a very very delicate operation because this will the juiciest, tenderest, and best tasting turkey you have ever seen or tasted. 

6. Once it is on the platter, guard it with your life. One false move before official carving and it will turn to soup, explosively on the table. It will turn to soup anyway as it is being carved but that's okay because everyone will blame the guy doing the carving for the hatchet job and joke that he should never become a surgeon.



7. Bring along some  homemade bread, I'll show you how (without a bread machine that costs more than your dryer).

8. Happy Easter

Book Review Request: What Sex is a Republican?

(I couldn't find your contact email, hence the comment.)

At this time, we are sending out a copy of a new book entitled What Sex is a Republican? Stories from the Front Lines of American Politics and How You Can Change the Way Things Are to bloggers for review. In this political autobiography former State Representative to the Wisconsin State Legislature Terri McCormick takes a look at the political game from behind the curtain with one intention; to call on each of us to serve in our local, state and federal governments.

The link for What Sex is a Republican? Stories from the Front Lines of American Politics and How You Can Change the Way Things Are on Amazon is: http://www.amazon.com/What-Sex-Republican-Terri-McCormick/dp/0981572804/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1268268958&sr=1-3

In her memoir, What Sex Is a Republican?, author Terri McCormick presents a case for courage from the perspective a lawmaker who is uniquely qualified to do so. Based on actual events, her book explains what happened to our political system when citizens weren't actively engaged and then she calls on each of us to change the way things are. This book provides an insider's perspective to the realm of American politics and the struggle of "career politicians" to stay in power at all costs. Coming from a grassroots background, she proves that ideas and "integrity leaders" can win over these career politicians and calls on Americans to take back the reins and restore a government for and by the people.

I'd love to send you a copy of the book for you to review on your blog. The author is also available for an author interview.

Thank you for considering the idea.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Best,
