The turkey, the star of the show, was the last one to be finished. I took it out of the oven around 4a.m. I was a zombie. I didn’t know whether to set my alarm and fall asleep or to just have more coffee and wait it out. I had to let the turkey sit and rest. I just didn’t sleep and waited it out. When it was time, I dismembered and pulled the turkey. With the breasts, I just loosely covered it because I like to cut it cold. I stuck everything in the fridge and finally crashed around 6:30a.m. The slicing of the turkey breasts and pan dripping gravy making would be done when I woke up some hours later.
And the Shrimp, Crab and Lobster Club from the lunch menu caught SS’s eye.
Two was good enough for me. I have my limits now for alcohol tolerance…another sign of getting old lol. But also, I had plans to have wine later that evening, so I didn’t want to drink anymore. The server was attentive and super chatty (if you like to mingle and chat with your servers, you would have loved her).
I asked SS how they tasted. He said, “It’s good. Try it.” But if I tried it, I think I would have died from my stomach exploding. I didn’t get to try it until the day after I got home. And I loved it.
We got back home within four hours and avoided any major traffic. At work, I was in major zombie mode and couldn’t wait to get home and crash. Luckily, it was dead that night, a good night to be in zombie mode.
And now, the following week, I feel like I should eat nothing but salads and get in a good jog to recover from all that gorging.
