Turkey Talk III

Filed under: ,

We’re doing the Trader Joe’s pre-brined turkey for Thanksgiving again this year. Excellent bird. Still available at Trader Joe’s. But if you’re looking for something else—say, something that requires some elbow grease and will impress your dinner guests—why not do the “dry brined” salted turkey? I’ve had great birds with the Russ Parsons/Judy Rodgers recipe from the LA Times. And if you want to brine a turkey yourself, do the Alton Brown recipe.

Beyond the bird, may I suggest you make the best stuffing there is? It’s Chef Paul Prudhomme’s Andouille Sausage stuffing. Wonderful. It became a regular part of our Thanksgiving when we made turduckens in the early Aughts. It was one of three different stuffings in the Chef Paul turducken recipe at that time.

For drink, I’m going with apple cider and the Anchor Steam holiday brew (I found it at Whole Foods this weekend). Professor Bainbridge at UCLA has a nice guide to wine options for Thanksgiving.

As with any Thanksgiving advice, your Miles Standish May Vary.

PIF: America's Favorite Improv Fest

Filed under: ,

If you’re in Phoenix today, get on down to the Herberger Theater to see the final night of the Phoenix Improv Festival. PIF is a great improv fest and the Herberger Theater is an amazing facility. If you go tonight, you’ll be treated to LA’s Kind Strangers, Hawkins and Stroth, and Utah’s JoKyR and Jesster.

Trophy Wife had the honor and pleasure of performing at PIF in years past. It was, indeed, a wicked good time. Thank you, Phoenix!

True Beauty with Ronda Lee

Filed under: ,

You guys… I found this very helpful video on the interwebs regarding a romantic first date look. Which is something that, as Trophy Wives, we can all appreciate since I’m sure we remember fondly the day we first put on our finest duds and hornswoggled the other Wives into loving us, for however long it took to get a ring on that finger.

Happy Holidays from Trophy Wife

We’re taking the next couple of weeks off from the podcast for the holidays. In the meantime, here’s a great animated short from Spanish director Rodrigo Blaas. Enjoy and have a happy.

Menagé a Politics

Filed under: ,

January A photo from the 2009 Trophy Wife Calendar was recently used to illustrate an article in an online European political magazine. Because if there’s one thing Zabs, Mike, and I wanted to do with that photo, it was comment on collusion within the European Union. AM I RIGHT?
