I'm from the south. There's no such thing as enough butter...or too much.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Stealing this for my facebook update.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Gretchen said...

Oh the irony! I did all my Thanksgiving shopping yesterday with no list and miraculously remembered everything ... except butter. oops. I'll never make it through the day with only half a pound of butter!

Hillary Jacques said...

The gravy from a butter-basted turkey must be >gag< delicious.

Elaine AM Smith said...

What was the advert for? I don't think they mentioned. ;)

Happy Thanksgiving: do your family a favour hold back on the ... turkey ;)

Chuck H. said...

Butter Bake your Butterball!!!

Happy Thanksgiving, ya'll.

Elen Grey said...

I love this video! Everything is better with butter. Forget investing in gold. Invest in butter. Can way say...butter!

Janet/Corn Dog said...

LOL Fabulous!

Norma Beishir said...

I wonder if the convenience store is open...must buy butter....

Happy T-Day to all!

Mira said...

Ha! I want to be a member of this family. They look so happy. After I went quietly insane, I imagine it would be so peaceful, even strangly beautiful, to only talk about one thing: putting butter on our turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

You do think that Nathan secretly has an interest in the butter industry?

I'm Scottish--while we don't do Thanksgiving over here, we *do* understand butter. :D

Parkay!

Happy Thanksgiving to all those in the states!

I've never been a big fan of butter - a little goes a long way.

Quaint little video (in B&W too)showing early marketing methods (repeat, repeat, repeat three times so the listener will get it).

We've already had our Thanksgiving in October (Canada)so we can be ready to nosh again at Christmas.

Enjoy your holiday!

Oh My God! You're supposed to take it out and baste it with butter every 15 minutes, not every half an hour. What's wrong with those people?

lahn said...

Hilarious! I'm with Rhiannon though -- there's never enough butter (and I'm a northern girl, through and through).

swampfox said...

Northern...Southern...I'm a California man. I'm not sure, because I don't do the cooking, but I think Californians are down for butter.

Aren't they? Sure. Right?

Other Lisa said...

Oh, that was just weird...

But Happy Thanksgiving, all!

Rick Daley said...

Happy Thanksgiving!

I used several recipes from cooksillustrated.com and just ate the best Thanksgiving dinner ever. Hope you all had a wonderful meal too.

Don't trust Ed Prentice with your families health and wellbeing , give butter to your guests instead .

Happy Thanksgiving!

Jaden Terrell said...

Is there ever enough butter? As a southern gal like Rhiannon, I don't think so.

Hope you're having a happy Thanksgiving, Nathan.

We did the Alton Brown turkey -- brined overnight, then a quick half hour at 500 degrees with a foil breast shield over the white meat, and down to 350 for 90 - 120 more minutes. Juicy and delish!

I loved seeing this because I was born in 1955 and can remember those sorts of family ads in my wee youth. The daughter was channelling Shirley Temple, the mom Donna Reed. And the dad was just a shill.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Jil said...

Poor kid's going to come down with salmonella, trying to lick the raw buttered turkey like that!
Shucks, I forgot our turkey! Oh well we'll just chomp sticks of butter, that'll do.
Happy day all!

Megan Sayer said...

Oh that's hilarious!!! So thanksgiving is about a family of three sharing a turkey that'd feed an army, with no vegetables.

Hmmm. One more thing about America that Stryans don't understand.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all anyway : )

Courtney Price ~ Vintage Ginger Peaches said...

Someone should count the number of times they say the word butter :) And Martha TOTALLY did this on the Today Show this morning... the dipping of the cloth in butter, it's real.

Savannah Chase said...

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.

Jan Markley said...

Just what we all need - more butter!?

Anna said...

Happy Thanksgiving! If you've never had a Greenberg Turkey, I suggest you order one for Festivus. Smokey and delicious!

heidi said...

My dog's name is Butter.

Heidi said...

mmmm butter

wendy said...

Happy Thanksgiving, Nathan and everyone. :)

Travis Erwin said...

There is never enough butter or bacon. It is simply impossible to have excess of either.

Terin Tashi Miller said...

As Travis, Rhiannon and others said: You can never have enough butter.

But I hope Thanskgiving fun for everyone.

And that there's enough left-overs for sandwiches...

Allbest,
T

A Paperback Writer said...

I love how dad has the whole freakin' turkey sitting in front of him. :)

And wow-- the acting was awful.

Thanksgiving was great, just forgot to put eggs in the dressing, but made up for it with the gravy. The only bad thing about the day was that the Cowboys lost so I ate an extra piece of pumpkin pie to make up for it. Somehow that made it all butter.....

I just read "10 commandments for a happy writer" -- from this site. Such good guidance and added to feeling that am on "right track."

Reading here, posts & comments, feels like have people "on" a "team" with me -- THANKS

vvdenman.com said...

Gotta love Dad's apron. And how about the girl licking butter off the raw turkey? Nice.

Matthew Rush said...

Is there such a thing? As enough butter?

Jovanna said...

Made my day. Thanks.

Sheila Cull said...

Yes. When you think about it, butter is essential for cooking, isn't it?

You can tell who doesn't cook.

Do you or your wife cook more Nathan?

I've noticed that you blog earlier without your lit agent hat. (Yeah!)
