Not Thanksgiving Again!

In all honesty, I truly hate Thanksgiving.  I’m just like that turkey on the wire trying to hide.  It is the only time of the year when I’m forced to cook a massive meal (90% of which I don’t like) and then clean up the massive mess I made creating said meal.  Of course, I’m leaving out the preparation of the whole debacle.  Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook, I just hate having to cook a massive meal I don’t like and creates a huge mess.  Not to mention the smell of green bean casserole, which my husband cannot live without.  It makes me want to gag every year.

I know many of you out there are saying, well cook food that you like too.  My response is:  I’m too dang tired from cooking all the other foods to even consider making something for myself.  Then, there is the extra clean up from the extra food I would make for myself.

This year I have had a stroke of luck!  I’m working Thanksgiving morning!!  I think I’m the only person who could be happy about something like this, but I am.  Woohooo!!  I’ll be teaching a “Burn the Bird” 60 minute Spinning class at our gym.  So, since it takes me an hour just to get to work, I won’t be able to cook Thanksgiving dinner, and my husband gets to do it all!!  0000760_300Hubby will also be brining the turkey.  I ordered the brine from Williams-Sonoma before I hadWilliams-Sonoma Apple & Spices Turkey Brine the option of working on Thanksgiving (I’m the only one teaching that day, and the gym is only open till noon).  Everyone raves about their turkeys when they brine them, so I figured that we could give it a try this year.  Since this is my husband’s first time cooking a turkey and brining it, I wish him the best of luck!!  Our son says he will, “help him and make sure that he doesn’t create too much smoke,” in the kitchen while he is cooking.  I may just like this years Thanksgiving after all!

For those of you who would still like to get a workout in on Thanksgiving, but cannot go to the gym, here is another 300 Workout you can do at home!
