Feeling Adventurous? Give Your Turkey a Kick This Thanksgiving

By Lauren Kodiak

For the most part, Thanksgiving food tends to be a bit bland — but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re looking to spice things up this year instead of playing it safe, this chile-rubbed turkey is the way to go.

Made with a blend of guajillo and ancho chiles; garlic; dried spices like oregano, cumin, cloves, and cinnamon; apple cider vinegar; and sugar, this flavorful turkey is the centerpiece your Thanksgiving table deserves. In a sea of starches — mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, stuffing, dinner rolls — it stands out like a beacon of shining hope.

If you have leftover turkey, skip the standard next-day sandwich and go for turkey tacos instead. Some warm corn tortillas, the turkey, a quick cabbage slaw, and some avocado slices? Sign me up.

Truck full of tofu, organic drinks goes missing from Safeway parking lot

IMAGE: This tofu-loving hamster (probably) didn’t steal the delivery truck. (pyza*)If we were going to steal a semi truck full of something from a grocery store (we would never do something like that, and we suggest you don’t either), it certainly wouldn’t be one brimming with tofu and organic health drinks. But those items were apparently appealing to one Oregon thief Tuesday when he made off with a truck full of the products. 

Portland police say they are looking for a large truck stolen from an area Safeway store around 9:30 a.m. today.

Officers responded to the store after receiving a report that a refrigerated truck was missing from the parking lot.

The driver of the truck told police that he went into the store for about 20 minutes, and when he returned outside, the healthy food delivery truck was missing.

The rather nondescript white 2007 vehicle, owned by Seattle-based R&K Foods, is an Isuzu box-style truck with Washington license plates C69952D. The front and rear doors contain a “99” sticker.

Authorities say the currently have no suspects in the case.

Let’s put food on the table of those less fortunate then ourselves while working off some of those extra pounds gained during our own Thanksgiving [email protected], as we prepare to enjoy Christmas dinner guilt free (waistline.)
