The chilies covered up the taste of the turkey, too, which was another advantage. It also had beans and guacamole in it, and was topped with shredded cheese and a sauce that helped melt the cheese. Those were about the best burritos I ever had. But I'm thankful even for the frozen bean and cheese burrito I'm going to have for dinner, It's superior to roasted turkey in both texture and flavor. It's also way cheaper than a turkey, takes about three minutes to microwave, and doesn't require making a huge mess of the kitchen. Que viva Mexico.
Now I have to find something to watch on television, which is not always easy on Thanksgiving. Saccharine holiday overload is beginning in earnest. Odds are I won't get to see any English people murdering one another tonight. But then I do have On Demand, so maybe I can find a rerun of an English murder. Even if I know how it turns out, it will be better than some sappy holiday special. And tomorrow I know I'll probably get to see news reports Americans murdering one another at Black Friday sales. That will have to be my consolation.
