i bought this telegram, because it’s probably the best thing i’ve ever seen. i’m framing it. it cost $1.
I’m guessing the brassy dame in question here is named “Mavis”, or “Ethel”, or something else deliciously old-timey.
Can you imagine being the operator?
Do you have the mascerated carcass of a Turkey lying around, and all that delicious turkey bone meat to scrape off? NEVER FEAR.
Jesse has a recipe for you!
What you’ll need:
1 big ass pot. at least 4quart, probably 8 qt.
6 cloves of garlic; 3 whole, 3 smushied.
1 shallot, minced.
2 normal yellow onions or one monstrosity onion, like the one Dan got. (see photo.) Diced.
5 medium stalks of celery, sliced.
2 large carrots, sliced.
An array of potatoes, whichever you’d like. I used 10 mini Yukons, 6 mini red yukons, and 3 mini blue jewels. It should be basically 2 1/2 cups of quartered/diced/cubed (depending on potato size).
1 Cup whole grain rotini.
The mascerated coprse of your Turkey, preferrably with at least one leg/wing left, stuffing scraped out.
Sausage. I literally just used 8 breakfast sausage links cut into thirds because I’m fab like that, but you could use ground sausage or sausage stuffing even. I chose not to use our sausage stuffing because it was too precious.
Depending on size of Turkey, you’re going to need a fuckton of chicken broth, or be willing to improvise. I used 74 ounces of Chicken Broth.
2 cups dry white wine.
Separated into Aromatic Spices and Main base spices:
2 TBSP Thyme
1 TBSP Cardamom
1 TBSP Marjoram
1 TBSP Rosemary
3 TBSP Tarragon
3 TBSP Cilantro
2 TBSP Marjoram
2 TBSP Oregano
1.5 TBSP Paprika
1.5 TBSP Salt
Pepper to Taste
2 TBSP oil.
1. Mise en place! You’re going to need all your veggies up front, your Meatsies, and your chicken broth. Your aromatic spices are going to go in first; then your Main. Keep everything else away or else you’ll go batty!
2. Get the oil going in the big ol’ pot for about 3 minutes, and then throw in Shallots & Garlic. Five minutes or until browned.
3. Put in Aromatic Blend, smell the deliciousness, stir constantly for 1-2 minutes.
4. Dump in Onion, Celery, and Carrot. Stir until veggies are entirely coated in aromatics. Cook for 5-10, until onions are semi-translucent.
5. Put in half of your chicken broth. At the end of the day, your broth is going to fill to near the top of the pot, so; just accommodate for that much.
6. Put in LE TURKEY~ & Le SAUSAGE. More broth to cover to the top.
7. Let it reach a boil, then add in your potatoes and your Main spice blend.
8. Let it boil and walk away.
~~2 hours later~~
9. Peel the Turkey off as many bones as you can, but don’t remove the larger bones. Leave ‘em in! Part of the flavor cocktail. Add in your wine. Add more chicken broth until it’s back up to near the top. Taste, season a bit if you want. Walk away.
~~2 hours later~~
10. Get all that turkey offa there and add in your pasta. Taste. Season if you want. Add in any remaining chicken broth you have. Walk away.
~~30 mins-hour later~~
11. Pick out the bones. There’s still gonna be some, but just work your way through getting the large bones out. The meat should just fall off! Then, turn to low, let it cool for about five minutes, and…

I’ve worked retail for some time; largely, I’m one of those Millenials with a useless degree and a fantasy of being artsy-fartsy, but this year, I’m in a retail position that doesn’t really “do” Black Friday. Sure, we have a sale; but it’s actually only coincidentally tied with our three year anniversary. You see, my shop launched on Black Friday! :D
I dropped Dan off at work this morning at JC Penney at 330AM, then I sort of Turkey Trotted the mall for a while—my first time on the totem pole of mediocre success! Off, off on a Black Friday!
This empty, sterile world, brightly lit and incredibly garish compared to the black of the morning; no one’s quite sure where they’re going; nobody seems quite happy; but everyone sure sounds it. Their voices are full of this fraudulent spice…
