    Funny to phrase it that way.lol I got the bagel and lox but no red onions and capers.
    When I made a trip to NY some years ago, I had a clear agenda with a priority for each - see La Traviata at the Met, a bagel and lox, a day at the Metropolitan Museum, tour harbour seeing the Statue of Liberty. Over three days I slept about 4 hours a night but did all these plus the Empire State Bldg, Museum of Natural History, MOMA and so much more. I cannot imagine all the people who had scheduled plans or have planned to visit NY and unable to do so these days. It is an amazing city.

    I would like to go to NYC for my birthday in January but it isn't looking good. For a while they were doing well there but no more. I wonder how much of a distraction it has been from governing for Andrew Cuomo to write a book praising his own leadership in the pandemic.

    Got my turkey today, along with a bag of potatoes. Should be set for Thanksgiving.

    Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. We don't have a smoker but I did find a very nice roasting pan on sale at Costco. Nice and large, with handles and made of steel so very lightweight. I'm thinking it will replace my heavy Pyrex casserole pans. I've taken the advice to enjoy the process and bird and am planning to make a cranberry/mushroom/apple/pecan dressing to go with it. I'll cook that separately. And sweet potatoes... yuuumm. Also picked up some fresh asparagus. For dessert: fresh fruit and nuts if we're not too stuffed. And a delicious merlot.

    Instead of a roux-based gravy I'm going to put lots of chicken broth in the roasting pan, fresh sage and thyme, lemon, garlic, portabella mushrooms, the turkey neck and giblets. Plus I'm going to drape the turkey in bacon! In essence, I'm making an au jus for the turkey meat, which we like much better than gravy. I'm making lots to have leftovers.

    We're skipping the mashed potatoes, bread, pies, etc... I'm thinking the stuffing doesn't freeze well so I'll probably share with friends if it comes out good. If not tasty, then it will become soup.

    I'm enjoying the anticipation of cooking the meal. No guests, no pressure!

    Sounds really good, Geila! Enjoy. My Thanksgiving menu will be turkey, mashed potatoes, homemade cranberry sauce along with the canned stuff - LOL- , homemade sourdough rolls, steamed carrots, gravy, dressing and mac 'n cheese (child wants to make). Feeding a neighbor and they contributed a pumpkin and apple pie.
