Thanksgiving in July

Because I am a crazy housewife, I got a wild hair and decided to have Thanksgiving in July. I have no idea where the idea came from, as I am not a huge fan of turkey, but the idea came and I went with it. I have to take my excitement where I can.

As a side note, our local Wal*Mart is being remodeled and it's a mess. Nothing is anywhere that makes sense. I spent twenty minutes trying to find the turkey breasts and finally asked a guy stocking hot dogs. Turns out they have hidden the turkey in the back, so the nice gentleman went into the back and brought out two turkey breasts to choose from. Going to Wal*Mart is trippy these days; everyone has this stunned look on their face like they survived a nuclear strike or found out George Bush is back in office or something and, I stumble around muttering, "Wow, I can't find anything!"

I'm going to make a eight pound turkey breast with all the fixings including green bean casserole, which is a family joke. Doesn't matter what I make for any sort of holiday dinner, green bean casserole is on the menu. It goes pretty well with lasagne, just so you know.

If you're in Indy on the Southside, come by about 6 and have Thanksgiving dinner in July.

I LOVE turkey! It's me at the door!

I think it's a great idea to have Thanksgiving whenever you are feeling thankful. Who knows? Maybe you will have lasagna in November!

I do full blow turkey dinners all the time, only I don't get a breast, I get a whole turkey for two reasons:

1) we love leftovers, so more, more, more and,

2) I love stuffing stuffed in the bird.

Hope yours was great!
