Thanksgiving week is here.  This is also known as Go-To-The-Gym-And-Pay-It-Forward-So-I-Can-Eat-What-I-Want-Week, which is immediately followed by Who-Shrunk-My-Pants-Month.
 
This Thanksgiving is finally feeling like a welcome departure from last year.  The only upside to having to do the holiday over Zoom was that no one could see how burnt the turkey was.  I do hope you all get to be with loved ones without a backlit screen in sight this year.  And…..as long as there is food to be prepared, then my annual Thanksgiving “Unplugged” column rides again.
 
In honor of the upcoming holiday and everyone already planning their menus, virtual or otherwise, I wanted to help, but I don’t cook.  No one in my family cooks.  We heat stuff up.  None of our spouses read the fine print before they said “I do,” so that’s on them.
 
I looked for something online that best describes the one time of year we do try to cook that would capture the essence of Thanksgiving….at least in my family.
 
Reminder, we’re Irish.  Don’t judge.
 
HOW TO COOK YOUR TURKEY:
 
Step 1.  Buy a Turkey
Step 2.  Have a glass of wine
Step 3.  Stuff turkey
Step 4.  Have a glass of wine
Step 5.  Put turkey in oven
Step 6.  Relax and have a glass of wine
Step 7.  Turk the bastey
Step 8.  Wine of glass another get
Step 9.  Hunt for meat thernomonmeternonometer
Step 10.  Glass yourself another pour of wine
Step 11.  Bake the wine for four hours
Step 12.  Take the oven out of the turkey
Step 13.  Tet the sable
Step 14.  Grab another wottle of bine
Step 15.  Turk the carvey!
 
Good luck with your shopping and preparations.  This would include being ready for many things in person that we’re out of practice with, including the drunk uncle, the never-stops-talking-aunt, the cousin who quotes every article they “researched” and the in-law who thinks smoking inside by the open window while it’s 10 below is considerate. 
 
Last year didn’t have many perks but being able to log-off the virtual dining room table was definitely one of them.

“You can tell you ate too much for Thanksgiving when you have to let your bathrobe out." 

 Jay Leno

JJ Wilde
"With an unmistakable rock ‘n’ roll attitude and a roaring voice to match, Wilde’s music and stage presence are just as alluring as you’d expect of an up-and-coming star with the credentials she boasts."
Music Existence 

"JJ Wilde is a rocker to the core. And we are hooked. JJ Wilde hit Irving Plaza with an unapologetic, raw sound that embodies her style to a T. And we at THP loved every minute of it." – The Honey Pop

Leon Bridges
“Gold-Diggers Sound is a peek behind the technical skills that reveals a soulful, fascinating human being.” – Billboard
“Leon Bridges, offers his personalized survival strategy for Southern soul…the music uses synthetic textures, programmed beats and surreal layering to carry a decades-old tradition into the 21st century.”
New York Times

My Morning Jacket
“This next phase of MMJ is going to be a special one. The new material sounds like some of their best since “Evil Urges,” the band feels rejuvenated, and Jim James feels more centered than he has in years. This is all building to one massive next year for this group — and with the return of live music and a desperate need for reverie, there’s no one better to lead the rock revival than My Morning Jacket.” – Consequence

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
“… a giant leap forwards…” – MOJO

“Masterful” – Uncut

“Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats’ glorious new vintage R&B album, bursting at the seams with fresh coolness. It has a sound grounded in the past but not mimicking it, a fresh, modern-retro vibe that makes sense once you listen.” – AP
