PhotoHunt: Metal


The PhotoHunt theme this week is "Metal"

Seriously? Metal? Am I missing some hidden meaning? A double-entendre? I didn't know what to do with this.

So, I did this:

On the U.S. Thanksgiving Day this past Thursday, MJ and I had the traditional sumptuous turkey dinner at the home of some friends. They deep-fry their turkeys in a big Metal deep-fryer dedicated to the purpose, and kids, I tell you this was some of the best turkey I have ever eaten.

I know they thought I was a little strange when I said "Hold it right there! I have to get a picture of this!" But then, perhaps I was just confirming what they already knew. :-)

So? Did I clear the theme?

And speaking of Thanksgiving... You know that Daily Click link in my sidebar? The one I urged you to click and support getting free mammograms for women who can't afford them? Did you know you can shop there? I just did like 90% of my holiday shopping for Christmas and Hannukah at The Breast Cancer Site, The Hunger Site, The Rainforest Site, and The Animal Rescue Site. Their prices are phenomenal, right now (in the US) shipping costs one cent, and you can help your favorite cause and the environment and find all kinds of cool gifts for just about everyone in the family!

Metal is a good Photo Hunt theme -- because it really allows people (like you!) room to play around with it! ;b

Aileni said...

Seems like a very good choice - it is undoubtedly metal.

Works for me! It looks delish, and I don't really even like turkey!

smarmoofus said...

Nice metal, but how was the turkey? I don't think I've had deep-fried turkey yet? Is it really as good as people say? Something about the idea just seems... wrong... for Thanksgiving. But I'm a traditionalist.

Happy Thanksgiving!

When I was working in the US our subcontractor used to deep fry turkeys after injecting them with herbs and spices. Absolutely delicious.

eam said...

Nope, i didn't think this was a stretch on the theme at all- just a fun way of presenting metal! LOL

very fitting i tell you that, post thanksgiving...

Oh my, I have to say, I've never had nor seen deep fried turkey before (and that size!) and I betcha it came out great! I love whole fried chickens and this must be exceptional! makes me hungry and crave fried anything... yay!

JyLnC said...

I have always wanted to taste fried turkey. Everyone who has tasted it raves about it.

Great photo...now I'm hungry again for turkey.

Stop by and see my Metal photos if you can.

Fried turkey is my favorite!

gen/entry said...

Oh love that turkey...Nice one. Happy hunting!

June said...

I've heard that deep fried turkeys are to die for...I'd like to try one day, but so expensive as far as I can find. I did get an organic, fresh bird this go round...it was so much more tasty than the frozen birds I'm used to!

Love some deep fried turkey.. great shot... timely one...we have one of those metal pots that has never been used...

Annie said...

Great take on the theme! I love deep fried turkey. My uncle does it and after he takes the turkey out, he throws a bunch of sweet potatoes in to make fries...yum!

Thanks for visiting and hope you are having a nice holiday weekend!

Expat Traveler said...

I've never seen it done in person yet and I'm wondering how good it tastes, better? Great choice!

upto6only said...

Hi, the turkey looks good. Happy Thanksgiving :)

Mrs Mecomber said...

Hey, this works! I have never seen a turkey fryer, either, so it was a new photo for me! Great job. Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you for visiting my Photo Hunt last week. I am finally getting caught up!

I am assuming the pot is aluminum and that is definitely "metal". I have never had fried turkey but would love to try it. How long did it take to cook the bird? So glad you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving with friends!

Dragonstar said...

You did great! It's a good picture, and (to me!) quite an exotic idea. Deep fried turkey?

Daisy said...

I sure wish I could have a bite!

Claudia said...

Hmmm good! Super fun shot!

Liz said...

deep-fried turkey?!

Amanda said...

That is so cool! I always wanted to try that but I was afraid we would set the grass on fire. :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
