Ironic Turkey and More Intro to HSST


Just to further introduce you to Harwich Spirits Shoppe Talk… (Trust me, we ain’t your average hoity-toity wine, beer, and liquor purveyor.)

Thought we’d just say that we hope that everyone had a pleasant and safe holiday, and include this ironic (though flawed) photo…

Do you see that blurry brownish object with the small gray lump on it just to the right of the lid of the gravy jar? That’s a wild turkey. Yeah… I was prepping some left over gobbler and stuffin’ when this brute wandered through the backyard. Can you imagine what his reaction might have been if he somehow could have conceived the whole process of the slaughter, plucking, freezing, defrosting, cooking, carving, eating, refrigerating, microwaving, and eating yet again of one of his brethren? It probably would bent his tiny little mind.  Something along the lines of, “It’s a cookbook!” in the old Twilight Zone human terms. Anyway, this is the sort of Weltanschauung you can expect at our store. (Put another way, Steven Wright probably would feel at home in the joint.)

One last note… Check out our references section below. Those will be a common element of every post. (There will be a quiz later.)

See you by the racks,

    Well-written. Thanks. I have been learning a lot about ethnic cooking lately. There are a lot of creative recipes using rice out there, the trick is finding one that really brings out the flavor of the rice you are using. Visit my blog if you’d like to read more. Thanks again for this blog – it is really well-done.
