A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving [VIDEO]

One of our favorite holiday TV features is "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving", a must-see in the Greg McShea household. It seems like the "Peanuts" gang has an animated TV special for just about every holiday, and while this one isn't their best, it's fun to watch. We would sometime miss seeing when it was on TV, so our daughter bought us the DVD of it a few years ago.

Ever since I was a kid, the "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade" has been a tradition in the McShea household, and it still is.

What Are You Thankful For

Chris was a member of Heron Creek Golf Club and we had the privileged to play with him several times.  Monday night we paid our respects at Heintz Funeral Home in Clinton and waited in a line almost 2 hours long. It was so touching to see how many lives Chris touched, not only to my husband and I but to his wife Susan.

The Secret to the Juiciest Turkey You’ll Ever Eat

Whether you’re making your first turkey for Thanksgiving or your hundredth, I’ve got a recipe I found for the moistest, juiciest bird you’ll ever eat.  I posted it last year and thought I'd re post this year for anyone who missed it or didn't give it a try.  This recipe will take some planning ahead of time.  It’s called brining, where you soak the bird in a salt marinade for 24 hours before you roast it.  OMG YUM!

The year was 1972, and I was the morning show host on WTLB Radio in Utica, and Matt Herkimer was the midday announcer (just opposite of our shifts on Big Frog 104 today).
