Topper's Grilling Advice!

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

But more importantly, everyone's favourite Canucks message board war criminal has himself a big date tonight!

Yes, areseholes, with a woman. A very attractive woman at that, and I've come to believe that her good lucks are matched only by her lack of intelligence. BONUS!

Definitely getting it on tonight. :rockin: :rockin:

So we're heading out to a local pub for some bar food, complemented with stouts (for me) and moonshine (for her). Then I'm thinking I'll grill up some chicken breasts at home with some of my famous homemade fettucini alfredo. I only indulge in lard one night a week so I'm jonesing for some fat. I just want to make sure the fat is on my plate and not sitting across the table from me. That picture better fucking be recent. I'm shredded like a mofo and I demand a certain standard!

Anyway, for desert I'm thinking leftover caramel cheesecake (what am I, made of money?), a rag soaked with paint thinner, 1 liter of absinthe and a sexual assault charge.

I'm loosening up right now with the greyest of geese!

Enjoy your weekend, gang!

WOOOOOOO!!!

OK, so I'm sipping a G&T in the pub, I've had a couple scotches, and I'm feeling real good.

In walks my date. She has a big cast on her arm.

I'm serious you guys, her fucking arm is broken! No mention of this in our conversations!

She's pretty hot, but what the hell am I supposed to do with this gimp?

We get back to my place and she can't stop complaining about her arm... she's also very mysterious about how the injury occured in the first place. The whining reaches fever pitch about midnight, so I'm like "OK, I have some Percs left over from my wisdom teeth getting yanked... try these."

Now she's super high AND super boring! She's regaling me with a laundry list of the perils of working as a "dancer" in Vancouver. I'm fucking losing it!

Anway I had to be very gentle with her, which really isn't my style. :twisted: In the morning I drove her home and asked her when she gets the cast off. She said in six weeks. I said "Sweet, call me in eight weeks!"

I always get the weirdos! But I won't give up the hunt.

:lol:

This is from allrecipes.com

But I use a variation of this for my stuffing. Seems to go over well with the 20+ ppl I usually feed for Christmas (I never get to cook TG turkey)

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups cubed whole wheat bread --->rye
3 3/4 cups cubed white bread----------> I ended up using rye bread. I usually don't eat wheat but TG is an exception
1 pound ground turkey sausage ----> Butcher shop quality is usually best
1 cup chopped fennel ----> you can use onion but I prefer the fennel
3/4 cup chopped celery
2 1/2 teaspoons dried sage
1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 Golden Delicious apple, cored and chopped
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
1 cooked turkey liver, finely chopped
3/4 cup turkey stock ----> if you can't use this, use chicken stock, but the turkey stock if use from the actual bird is always better
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degree F (175 degree C). Spread the (RYE) white and whole wheat bread cubes in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until evenly toasted. Transfer toasted bread cubes to a large bowl.
In a large skillet, cook the sausage and onions over medium heat, stirring and breaking up the lumps until evenly browned. Add the celery, sage, rosemary, and thyme; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes to blend flavors.
Pour sausage mixture over bread in bowl. Mix in chopped apples, dried cranberries, parsley, and liver. Drizzle with turkey stock and melted butter, and mix lightly. Spoon into turkey to loosely fill.

It's no Topper creativity, but it works and I've never had complaints in the taste department.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Enjoy the weekend with your families and loved ones.

I'll do a turkey similar to the way I do a chicken, herbs under the skin, but with the bigger bird you can be more creative with it,

Try mushroom slices (truffles if you are feeling $$$$) and bacon with rosemary and juniper.

As for stuffing, there are some valid health concerns about not stuffing a bird other than very loosely with seasoning items (garlic, onion, lemon) that will be discarded later. Fully cooking the stuffing and not over cooking the bird is the issue.

That said, for an occasion, I'll stuff the bird with a bread based stuffing and then bake a sausage based stuffing in a casserole dish. Try oysters in your stuffing if your crowd is for it. Don't forget that texture is a major component, have something with a crunch in there with all the softness of the stuffing.

Think the season, fall berries, apples, hazelnuts, chanterells.... Fennel instead of onion is great LB. I often serve caramelized fennel as a side dish.

Don't forget roasted squash and for christ sake buy a potato ricer or mouli mill so you can make good mashed spuds. Season them with something, buttermilk/roasted garlic/rosemary/olive oil/horse radish.

I also like succotash with the Thanksgiving dinner. Tis the season for fresh corn.

Great ideas about the stuffing - I've never been a huge fan stuffing, since it's usually bland and mushy.

A couple of things I done the past few years with my turkeys and people seem to like the results; I'll rub a garlic butter herb mix under the skin - baste with a juice mixture and add apples to the roasting pan - and I always cook the bird legs down now to get nice moist breast meat and flip it to brown the top at the end. I also baste often.

A large portion of my immediate family are vegetarians, so we basically have to cook two separate meals for all these holidays.

It seems like ages ago that we could all just sit down and eat the same bloody dinner.

:(

Happy Thanksgiving y'all.

Apparently vegetarians taste quite good.

May I suggest fava beans and a nice Chianti.

:D

I suspect they'd be kind of stringy.

Wifey has already started cooking the feast for tomorrow, gonna have a houseful (only two vegetarians). We are invited to a VEGETARIAN THANKSGIVING on Monday. Never heard of such a thing, but there are quite a few vegetarians in the extended family. Can't make it because we have some out-of-towners spending the weekend.

Plus I don't eat vegetables. ;)
