Friends, I present to you the best Thanksgiving turkey ever…the Greenberg Smoked Turkey.
On the flight home from The Relevant Conference Sunday evening, I scribbled out my “to do” list thinking it would be a beacon in my imminent re-entry fog. At the top of this list, in a sleep-deprived trance, I wrote:
ORDER Thanksgiving Turkey
Hold that thought, I’m going to go off on a rabbit trail with a story about Mia. For those of you new to The Schell Cafe, welcome! Mia is my mother. It’s not her given name, but the one she chose for herself about 10 years before her first grandchild arrived on the scene. She’s that kind of organized.
Mia and I have this quirky little thing that happens every time we go out to dinner. Without consulting each other we order the exact same item off the menu. Every.Single.Time. It doesn’t matter if we are around the corner at Torchy’s Tacos or at Gernoimo in Sante Fe, we will pick the same dish. On the rare occasion that we get to travel together we go all out to see if we can break our freaky same order streak. So we’ll each pick our second favorite item on the menu instead of our first choice. Same.
So back to my list. When I woke up in the anticipated fog on Monday morning, I was indeed grateful for my “to do” list glaring at me. The Thanksgiving turkey was minutes away from being ordered. You can imagine my surprise, although it wasn’t really shocking, when Mia emailed, before the sun was up, to tell me that she and Popa had ordered the Thanksgiving turkey. You know, just in case I woke up with a weird desire to order it myself. This kind of bizarro stuff is always happening to us.
All that to say, you really should order a Greenberg Smoked Turkey too. These delicious turkeys come shipped ready to serve and I promise they are 40 years of our family tradition good. I know you may not be thinking about your bird just yet, but take this as a friendly reminder that Thanksgiving is just three short weeks away. Order a Greenberg turkey and spend your time enjoying family, watching football, and not worrying about basting and baking a bird.
Have y’all started thinking about Thanksgiving yet? What dish to you look forward to the most?
