We are all sick of S.O.B. by now right?

It was cool for a minute and was driven into the dirt right?

Well the band is actually more than a novelty act - This song rocks

I will be cooking Thanksgiving at my daughter's place this year

I think this may be a plot on her part to teach her finance how to roast a turkey and make gravy. But we needed to take her up on the offer.

My wife and I have been squeezed into half our house since the "quick remodel" in August found black mold that led to the 1st floor being gutted.

What an effing nightmare... Anyway - We are not even close to finished rebuilding so the dinner was never going to be here.

Long preamble to this question - What is a good cooked vegetable replacement for green bean casserole? I just have had enough of that dish.

Since I read that the inventor of GBC had passed, and I will be cooking in a new venue - I feel that I need to free our Thanksgiving meal from the mandatory mediocrity this dish represents.

We do a pretty standard menu; Turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, mashed potato and gravy with tossed salad and French bread instead of rolls. My wife also makes sweet potato tempura so we are set on starch and meat.

I need another vegetable I think, but I have limited stove top or oven space - So my 1st choice (Greens) is out. No way I can put a pot full of greens into rotation on the range all the burners are accounted for.

Any thoughts?

This goes out to all my MA homies who may need a lovely melody well played

Just attempting to cover Jackson Frank's masterpiece "Blues Run The Game" takes some serious chops. Justin nails it - never even stumbles on the odd tempo hiccups

Cannot stop the Savoy Brown deep dive. I never heard this album until this morning.

But I went outside in the snow so I could order it on my phone. (Can't use work computers for commerce and can't carry a cell into the office)

Love this arrangement of the Motown Classic

On Kim's first guitar break he some how makes his guitar sound like a sax for a few bars... Just a great overlooked player.

I'm on a bit of a youtube bender today. Manning the office by myself in case anything comes up...

Hey Glamrock. How you doing today?

When I imagine you singing, for some reason this song comes to mind.
