It’s Thanksgiving Eve Eve! Do you know what you’re cooking? Here are some ideas:
- Cornbread dressing: Scott Peacock’s version is the one that comes closest to my Mississippi grandmother’s recipe. Don’t hold back with the turkey stock, and for the love of all things holy, don’t make it with Jiffy cornbread mix.
- Oyster dressing: Because double the dressing, double the fun! I prefer the version with French bread, because that’s what my Louisiana grandmother made.
- Talkin’ turkey: Those crazy Yankees at America’s Test Kitchen will never, ever steer you wrong. (Except maybe now that Chris Kimball has left the building, Anonymous will pull off some kind of catastrophic Thanksgiving Day hack and we’ll all be left flailing in puddles of savory turkey brine.)
- Even the military likes NPR’s Susan Stamberg’s mother-in-law’s cranberry relish.
- Rely on Miss Manners when your drunk uncle (Drunkle!) starts talking about Trump.
Now, as Thomas Jefferson so sagely said, can we get back to politics? (Please? – James Madison)
- Putin’s triple-decker War Room would “make Dr. Strangelove proud.” (They can’t fight in there. It’s the war room!)
- “But all of Syria, it seemed, had become about death.”
- Max Blau covers Stone Mountain in Atlanta Magazine.
- The Georgia Ports Authority anticipates an auto boom in Savannah.
- The Mayor of Augusta’s office budget is short on cash for the rest of the year.
- Unpaid taxes? Hope you like not having a passport!
- Lawyers, drugs, and money? Dad, get me out of here!
- Who is half-full in the Tri-State Water War?
- Georgia sues several for-profit “schools” for false promises and fleecing taxpayers.
- A blue-ribbon panel recommends spending more on Georgia schools. (“Did he just say a ‘blue ribbon committee?’ Well, you can’t get any better than that!”)
Today in Hamilton, we visit the Schuyler sisters, Angelica, Eliza, and Peggy. Listen closely so it will make sense when your three cousins start arguing about which one of them is the Peggy. Work!
