What, nothing about Spatchc0cking the turkey?
Millions of Americans will suffer this Christmas because of the Federal cuts and food stamp cuts. We had a community food drive to help those who would likely have nothing or very little. As some set and bless the thanks for their meals we pray 2014 the US will get lawmakers who give tax dollars to Americans in need.
vs. lawmakers who cut food stamps while personally getting millions in farm subsidies.
Aw, nothing like making a food blog political, especially on Christmas.
P.S. Not everyone benefits from food stamps, and not everyone agrees with it. Take it outside, or I guess plan to Occupy Eatocracy!
