A food addict and connoisseur of tasteful films reviews Food in Film, starring...
We had turkey for every holiday and family gathering when I was a kid. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Day, Easter. Reunions. Turkey, turkey, turkey, turkey. By the time I was grown and gone, I was sick of that bird and determined I would only prepare turkey once a year on Thanksgiving.
Why not copy my daughter and do away with it altogether (see Lobster)? Because I gotta have my turkey sandwich! Bread. Butter. Mayo. Turkey. Sprinkle of salt. That's it.
If I go somewhere else for Thanksgiving and don't have claim on the leftovers... well, I prepare a small turkey roast at home, just to have my sandwich. That's my tradition.
Which means, unlike this scene in Free Birds (2013), at my house there is no pardon for the turkey.
Scene: Pardoned turkey.
