Happy Thanksgiving (aka rape, plunder and pillage Indians day) to all you fellow Americans out there! Yeah, its a day thats been twisted to glorify the Pilgrims who amounted to nothing more than intolerant, murderous religious fanatics, but I have to say, I do love me the Macy*s Thanksgiving day parade. And who doesn’t love an errant massive balloon that goes off and knocks over a lamppost nearly killing tourists?
This may not seem like it has anything to do with today but… remember when Saturday Night Live was funny? I know some of you may be too young to remember such a thing but even after the era of Chevy Chase, the late Mr. Belushi and Gilda Radner was over, there was a really funny span of time during the early 90’s when SNL was funny again. Like, stomach-cramping funny. It included Chris Farley, Phil Hartman, Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Kevin Nealon. And Adam Sandler, too, was a large part of that crew. Nowadays the funniest thing about SNL is Amy Poehler … oh and Sarah Palin imitations by Tina Fey (who isn’t even really ON SNL anymore), and thats all over because the election is done. But anyway around here Adam Sandler’s Thanksgiving song is always played as soon as the beginning of November arrives, just as his three Hanukkah songs are played when its that time of year. I linked to it for those of you unfamiliar with this ditty about turkey and pop-culture, but just in case you can’t get the words here are the lyrics.
So enough rambling… here are my Thanksgiving cupcakes, with lil turkey and pilgrim vintage toppers. The recipe can be found here, except I used a plain dark chocolate frosting on these. Sorry for the not-so-great picture, I was lazy. And I know, I’ve been cooking and baking up a storm lately, and NONE of it has been cupcakes! I’m aware of the irony. So here are your cupcakes- this will tide you over until I make a new recipe in the next week or so. Gobble Gobble!
