to the feast who had nowhere else to a student from Croatia has been in the United States for eight months and is living in attend ing the community college His homeland is going through political turmoil as Croatians struggle to try to assert their independence from Sovietdominated This is definitely the best lunch I have ever Goran said as he fin ished some turkey and cornbread I can see why Americans have such large because they eat so Goran has been working in the computer lab at the college and free lancing to put personal computers together to sell to He is now getting paid after having his pay held for a long time due to problems with his foreign student Robert Stewart His parents in Croatia have been unable to send him any money because of the oppressive situation Yugoslavia is a Socialist Feder al Republic and is militarily quashing Croatias attempts at establishing Goran had never seen a pecan or cactus before and did not understand the concept of a sweet This is a potato that has been he Family members explained to him that it was actually a different variety of potato and retrieved one from the kitchen for him to see as he was eating those that had been He also had an extra slice of the pecan noting that Americans seem to like to eat a lot of sweet Someone asked him if he had ever had fried Of course he exclaimed as if the questioner was We have Goran was given a tour of the grounds of my inlaws known as the Funny near out side of He participated in a search for arrowheads in the pasture which yielded four on that day what he would expect to find in Back at the he was amazed and perhaps heartwarmed when he saw a painting of an angel in the This is the very same picture that my grandmother he My fatherinlaw and Goran started r talking about computers and set off for an hour into a mishmash of nology and numbers that left the rest of us VGAs and modems are a univer sal Upon hearing that I was a Goran was curious and then shocked when I told him that I tored the police radio scanner to find out what was happening in It is legal for you to listen to police he I assured him it was but he was As we left Elgin to make a stop at my parents house in I told Goran that I hoped things would get better in his He shrugged and said as if to say he didnt think they would very l As he he took with him a better understanding of American family lift as well as the arrowheads and the sweet And we knew a little bit more about just what we have to be thankful Robert it a fUff writer for the New Braunfeli VDO Just what we dull day Lets face Thanksgiving can be a Its a uniquely American holiday but it isnt very The Macys parade is no replacement for the Super We can all use an unexciting day once in a The best entertainment of the except for football on televi is watching usually the carve the The rest of the family sits around the table laughing at how bad he is at Im going to tell you how I carve a Not how TO carve one but how I carve Im not an Im an experienced ama Weve had two turkeys a year for 40 Those ore my The platter should be plain white and warm when the turkey is put on There shouldnt be any pictures of anything on the the platter shouldnt have a picture of a turkey on No one about to a turkey dinner wants to be reminded until dinner was a carefree To make sure you have a couple of good You need at least and the dull knife with the blade seven inches long that came with the set you got as a wed ding present isnt one of Andy Rooney You need a short knife with a strong blade and you need a slicer with a narrow Ten inches is the absolute mini mum My favorite slicer is 14 Ive had it for so long and sharpened it so often that its less than an inch wide Its carbon not and its razor You cant buy carbon steel knives Its part of the world conspiracy for impro ving things by making them They tell you stainless is just as good but it Keep a sharpening steel on the Dont when you carve a turkey youre in show busi so give the blade a few licks on the steel before you start carv ing even if it doesn t need The first cut you make is hard and And it isnt You want to remove the whole leg from the body of the so you make a guess about where the joint make a cut and then apply a lot of pressure with a strong fork to break the joint and force the leg away from the Its not a dainty Once you get the leg you need a smaller platter for the turk ey youre You need some one else working to put the mashed squash and stuffing on the because you have to keep this show If you the first person served sits there with food in front of him or her for IS minutes while you serve the the This is even harder than removing the leg because the joint is harder to I usually give up trying to be Nice Guy and I grab the wing with my left hand and while I cut the joint with the knife in my right Ive heard of people who carve the turkey in the kitchen and bring it to the table all There isnt a man alive who wouldnt rather carve the turkey in the kitchen where no one can see but that isnt the way the game is The look of the whole turkey on the platter with everyone at the table is one of the good sights of the The turkey should be big ger than you Slicing the white meat is the fun part because its Its easier if the turkey has been out of the oven for about 20 The slices should be as thin as you can make I start at the front of the breast and slice lar to the body of the After Ive cut four or five smaller slices that I start slicing the side of the The trouble in most homes is that everyone wants white meat or everyone wants dark In our everyone wants dark so we try to invite someone in for Thanksgiving who likes while We dont want any guests who like dark Stay Next maybe Ill tell you how I
