Gentilly Girl- a part of the 99%

Turkey Day ’07

Filed under: Aside,New Orleans — Tags: — Morwen Madrigal @ 6:57 pm

Once again the day comes round where I’ll be cooking for a day and a half to prepare one meal. For the second year in a row our traditional Orphan’s Bird Day will be very small… maybe four extra folks instead of our previous productions.

The bird is soaking in a citrus brine, the cranberries are waiting to become part of a conserve, coleslaw needs to whipped up, and the potatoes need to be boiled. (Betts is doing the stuffing since “I’m too stingy with the butter”.)

So a breaker pops in the electrical “system” that is part of this hovel we are stuck in ’til we get back into our house, and in the dark I’m confronted by a large white rabbit… looked hungry so’s I tossed him a few carrots. He gobbled them up right away. This is just very odd. I’m going to have to ponder the Totemic meanings of this. And a Full Moon is coming.

There are Great Egrets in the courtyard of the Gentilly house, parrots flying over Sugar Hill and a damn white rabbit shows up here. (Could this be a flashback from the days when I lived in the Haight-Ashbury? I can’t remember…)

Looks like Winter is going to be different from the norm. *rolls eyes, shakes head slowly*
And for y’all out there, have a good Thanksgiving tomorrow. Don’t stress out, that’s the cook’s job. Be careful driving out and around… there are people crazier than those of us with NOLA as our bloodtype.



  1. Love ya, hon. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Betts.

  5. Saw the pix on Ray’s blog. Your house looks like a fortress. Nicely upped.
