I've never written a Thanksgiving story but some day I might because Thanksgiving has always been a bizarre holiday for me. One of my ex-husband's best friends worked in a lab, so he decided to get very creative one Thanksgiving. He borrowed a complete i.v. set and brought it home to cook the turkey. He made a nice mixture of butter, oil, a bit of wine, and herbs ground to a powder, and he put it in the i. v. bag. Then, he attached the i.v. to the turkey, and let the drip keep the breast meat from drying out. I don't see how this could have worked but apparently it did. Just imagine seeing the i.v. bag, the pole it hangs from, and the tube running into the oven with the i.v. itself attached to the turkey. I bet dinner discussions in his house were fun that year.
He also swiped an injector, inserted the same fluid mixture as in the i.v. , and injected it in multiple places in the turkey. This was decades before you could buy a meat injector in places like Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
From what he said, it was the moistest, most delicious turkey he had ever tasted. I'll take his word for it.
All I can think of is who knows what kind of medical fluids were in those devices before he used them in his turkey. The guy was half nuts anyway. If you've ever seen the Swedish/Danish TV series "The Kingdom", you know how nuts medical personnel can be. The Stephen King remake doesn't hold a candle to the original.
So, let this be a reminder to you - to keep your turkey moist this Thanksgiving, inject it with fluids and hook it up to an i.v. Your doctor would be proud.
And now a little about my book "Don't Call Me Baby", which is coming out in print in 2014.

Don’t Call Me Baby is a fast paced, very adventurous romantic novel that will take readers on a roller coaster ride of scorching romantic fun. The main character, Catherine, is a woman after my own heart. She is young and fiercely independent, and beyond gorgeous. She is not wealthy, but she wants to live the good life and is not afraid to go get it. She is also very sexually liberated, and in the 1980’s this was sometimes a good thing, and sometimes a not so good thing. The story is so blisteringly hot and steamy; it’s difficult to put down. It took me back to a better time, and a time I enjoyed much more. It is a novel I truly enjoyed reading, and will definitely be reading time and time again. It’s not for the faint of heart, but it’s also not to be missed.
So many men, so little time. Catherine has a long list of men that she sees on a regular basis, and at the top of the list (for the moment, anyway) is Brian. He’s one of her professors at Quincy, and a married man, but that’s never been a problem. But he’s sodemanding! So maybe some time apart will be just the trick. A summer theater camp at another local college for local teens should make him realize that Catherine is not his possession, right? That is, until she gets to the camp and meets the other counselors. Ryan is gorgeous, and the rest? Well, what’s a girl on her own to do? Why, enjoy as many as she can! In the meantime, Catherine will come to grips with her mind and her heart, and will figure out what she really wants in life.
