Can you handle a big breakfast after Thanksgiving?

TODAY’S WORD is part of a series on current slang: Fauci Ouchie. Example: I got my Fauchi Ouchie in April.

TUESDAY’S WORD was big yikes. Example: Big yikes! I had no idea it took so long to walk to your house until I was only halfway there and was tired already.

Breakfast buffet

We’d better tell you about Horsepasture Volunteer Fire Department’s country breakfast buffet before Thanksgiving, because after it, eating a big plate of food might just be the last thing on your mind.

However, we’ll all probably start getting hungry again by Saturday morning — and if you have company for the holiday weekend, this is a great place to bring them.

The breakfast will be held from 6-10 a.m. at the fire department, with bacon, ham, sausage, biscuit, gravy (brown and white), eggs, apples, grits, milk, orange juice and coffee, for $8.

Talking turkey

There’s been a lot of talk nationally about a turkey shortage, and The Stroller heard some of the ladies in the office saying they thought the turkeys this year were smaller than usual. The Stroller asked around to see if it was a problem in this area.

Unanimously, the answer was there are enough turkeys to go around, and at pretty good prices, too, if you take advantage of sales. This comes from Dillard Norman, Carolyn Baptist, Michelle Graham, Elizabeth Durden, Jessica Minter, Lisa Martin, Tonya Pitzer-Jones, Rhonda Mills, Susan Blankenship, Becky Boyd Wood and Susan Fleenor.

Carolyn added this about her shopping experience: “I bought a 23+ one which a nice man lifted into my cart and a nice young man placed in my trunk. When we arrived at home, it was just the two of us. I wrapped both arms around the bird, we waltzed to the kitchen and staggered to the refrigerator. Then like Patrick in Dirty Dancing, I lifted ‘Baby’ to the top shelf. My arms are very sore today.”

However, the supposed turkey shortage “is nothing compared to the chitterling shortage plaguing those desiring them!” Tonya said, and Rhonda pointed out that it’s hard to find chicken livers lately.

Cranberry sauce

Jellied or whole-berry, canned or homemade, it’s all delicious, says Kitty Woiblett, who usually makes her own with fresh cranberries. She points out that cranberry sauce is also good with chicken dishes.

TUESDAY’S TRIVIA ANSWER: Mary Phelps Jacob came out with a patent for the first modern brassiere in 1913 and ran a bra production company called Caresse Cosby for a short time before selling the patent to the Warner Brothers Corset Company of Bridgeport, Conn. Warner made more than $15 million from the patent in the first 30 years.

TODAY’S TRIVIA QUESTION: How did World War I kill more or less kill of corsets, just as they were beginning to go out of style?

Republicans who won statewide office this month, and who will return to the majority in the House of Delegates come January, will likely put the brakes on some of the work done by Democrats while that party held sway in Richmond of late. However, on one issue at least — marijuana legalization — the GOP might hit the gas instead.

Kyle Rittenhouse is 18 years old. On Aug. 25, 2020, when Rittenhouse killed two men during a night of civil unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, he was 17. But when he took the stand during his murder trial, he looked like he could be 13. Defendants in murder trials often do themselves no favors by testifying in their own defense, but Rittenhouse probably helped himself. He was soft-spoken and ...
