Here’s a cool site with thanksgiving howtos ranging from turkey, gravy, cranberries, potatoes, and pumpkin pies. He has a very nice ingredient chart made especially for engineers. As an engineer myself (don’t want to be), this might turn out to be a good site to get ideas on how to cook turkey.
Author of the site: (It seems his resume is more for hacking, not cooking but I think engineers are good cooks by nature, cooking and engineering are similar, sometimes you have to improvise just like in cooking and engineering…)
