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.
