There are two traditions I have dropped in recent years.

The first is the Easter Bunny. When I lived in Montreal in 91, I remember Mark and I bought about 6 easter bunnies. Jean Coutu had them on sale for about a buck, and the chocolate was irresistible. Now I couldn't imagine eating a whole bunny. Come to think of it, it is a weird tradition. A chocolate bunny.

Bunnies should not be eaten.

The second tradition is one that I'm having a much harder time with. The Thanksgiving turkey. No I haven't gone all vegan on you. The JKA Karate Nationals are always on Thanksgiving weekend, so no more turkey for me. I didn't miss it too much last year, so I'm sure it will be ok to end that tradition.

Insandrea said to me one day, "Why don't you just cook a turkey?" Like it was an everyday normal thing to do. "Yeah right, cook a turkey, I don't know how to cook a turkey. In fact I've never really roasted anything." "Ah it's really easy" she says. Hmmmmm. How come I've never roasted fowl I think?? Not sure about that one.

I don't know if I'm alone on this one or not. I've baked bread before, I'm not a total twit in the kitchen. Afterall recipes are simple algorithms. Maybe that's why I haven't cooked a turkey, I've never found an algorithm for cooking fowl.
