Ah, the bloat

So as I mentioned yesterday, the traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner was delayed a day so the brother-in-law could deep-fry the sucker. And deep-fry it he did. So fine...if you've never sampled the fried turkey thing, you should. Tender, moist, not at all greasy, just plain delicious. Add to that the standard trimmings (squash, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, gravy, rolls, stuffing, and some Godawful Brussels Sprout dish that, in my mind, was a waste of perfectly good bacon) and now I'm 5 pounds heavier and nursing a turkey baby. So basically a day behind the rest of you.

Hmm...I'm feeling slightly less distended, so it must be time for some pie!
