Turkey, etc.

November 27, 2008

img_3139MJ (and daddy) love Mama’s turkey.

Speaking of turkey, an oldie but goodie from snopes.com:

Turkey does contain tryptophan, an amino acid which is a natural sedative.  But tryptophan doesn’t act on the brain unless it is taken on an empty stomach with no protien present, and the amount gobbled even during a holiday feast is generally too small to have an appreciable effect.

…experts say the average serving of chicken or ground beef contains as much tryptophan as a serving of turkey does.

Regardless, we all took a nice long poultry-nap, and will go over to Meme’s soon for pumpkin pie.

Black Friday starts the holiday season at the Blank Blank Planetarium; I’ll be happy to shelve the shows we’ve been playing, since I’ve seen them both an estimated 400,000* times or so.

*Number severly exagerrated for effect.
