    Okay, so guess what I forgot for the Thanksgiving food orgy? I forgot the CLAMS for the CLAM dip. I have the cream cheese, the sour cream, the worsteshire sause...everything but the clams. And the lemon. Which are sort of fundamental for clam dip.

    So this is what I did:

    I took two packages of cream cheese, 1 small container of sour cream, about a cup of shredded mozzerlla left over from a pizza I made for the kids a while back, garlic powder, worsteshershire (or however it's spelled) and one can of the two cans of crab I got for crab salad.

    Now I only bought one small bag of greens for the crab salad, because it's no good after the first day, but two cans of crab, because I wanted it to be super crabby. But sorta crabby is fine. I'll slam some green onions in there and nobody will even know.

    Anyway, I beat that shit together with salt & pepper and guess what? IT'S FUCKING FABULOUS. The best dip ever.

    I stuck it in a cake pan (one of the 9 inch rounds) and I'm baking it. If it's this good cold, imagine what it will be like hot and melty with a crust...

    Yummy. We're having that tonight for whore's doovers. Because my one guest for tomorrow is about 1.5 hours away. We'll get drunk and stupid and eat the shit out of that and then be lazy tomorrow. After I turn the fucking turkey to fully brine.

    Jello is halway set, so I stirred in the strawberries...I'll wait until tomorrow to stick bananas in, so they don't turn all yucky.

    I am so set for Thanksgiving.

    Once again, I'm a goddess. They made little carved images of me at the dawn of (human) time. I'm just that awesome.

    Next week: Butchering chickens at mom's house. She's like, "Allison, you have to come out to butcher. It bothers everyone but you."

    I'm like, I'm there.

    Add some Old Bay, and you have classic Chesapeake crab dip. You're right, fan-fucking-tastic stuff.

    No shit? This stuff that I dredged up has a name?

    What's Old Bay? Please tell me it's drinking alcohol and not aftershave.

    Speaking of Jello... I just finished making a huge tray of Jello shots. They're chilling in the fridge as I type. I'll be at my folks house for Thanksgiving dinner, but the real party will start when we get back home.

    Lol...I can remember Thanksgiving not just being about food.

    That was a long time ago though, babe. Enjoy.

    Ah....Old Bay is made by McCormick spices. It put them on the map. It was just a small company in Baltimore (pronounced 'Bal-more') who found a nice combo of herbs and spices for steaming Chesapeake blue crabs and McCormick bought them.

    One can't have Chesapeake crabs without Old Bay! It would be blasphemy. Oh, and lots of Old Bay needs to be used as it makes the beer even better.

    Frogen, if you're too drunk to spell favorite, you probably shouldn't be skinnydipping. It leads to brain damage and death.

    Besides which, in the world in which I live, skinny dipping in MAY, much less, November, is an event which might claim your life.

    I'm going to have to look up Old Bay seasoning and share it with my sis, and we'll have us a big ol' party.

    Damn, I feel the need for a roadtrip to Annapolis all of a sudden. Screw turkey. (The crabs are crusted in Old Bay and one gets a cup of it on the side as well.)

    November is Spring here in Australia, and the water is fine.

    But no one swims here sober, too many sharks.
