Scott's Infamous Turkey

Hey Everybody! I have had so many requests for how I cook my Thanksgiving turkey, so I thought I would post it here for you! So here goes! Take your turkey, after you have thawed it out, pull all the giblets out, don't want to forget those! Take a stick of butter at and mix it with minced garlic, crushed red pepper, and some dried thyme. Mix the ingredients together. Once you have dried the turkey off and toweled out the cavity. Take a pairing knife and make small slits in between the ribs into the breast of the turkey. Lift the skin of the turkey and make some small slits into the breast, make sure that you also make these slits in the front of the breast too, where the neck attaches. Then use your fingers to take the butter mixture and wedge it up into the slits that you have made into the turkey breast. Save some of the mixture to tuck under the skin around the thighs and legs. Then when roasting, as directed on your turkey label, be sure to tent your roasting pan with foil, until it's time to remove it and brown the skin. Check back every so often and use the turkey juices to baste your turkey breast. I always stuff the turkey with a little dressing to add to the other stuffing, it moistens everything up and adds lots of flavor. I will also use some of the juice from the turkey pan to moisten the stuffing. It is delicious!!! Enjoy and have a Great Thanksgiving!!!

Kanye West flagged for Unsportsman like conduct!

Last night at the MTV VMA Awards Kanye West through a tantrum when Taylor Swift won for best Female Video.  He got up on stage and blasted her saying that Beyonce should have won the award.  This seems to be a patteren of behavior for Kanye, and the unfortunate thing is it's a display of poor sportmanship.  Perhaps as bad, Serena Williams had an ugly outburst at the US Open yesterday, again another poor display of sportsmanship.  As much as we would like to throw the book at Kanye, or Serena, I think we all have our moments when good sportsmanship goes out the window.

Their poor behavior was much more public than ours, but I imagine that most of us have had our "moments".  Shining our light as believers isn't always easy, if it was I suppose that there may be a lot more people who would be following Christ.  As a believer, Christ calls to a life of service and self sacrafice.  Watching someone else's failure is many times a reminder of my own failures, and I am reminded of the incredible grace that Jesus extends toward us, even at our very worst. 

That is the Good News that the world needs to know about, and we have the incredible privalage of telling them about it.  Ironically enough, today's KLOVE Encouraging Word is a reminder to all of us, Matthew 5:13 says, "You are the salt of the Earth, but what good is it, if salt loses it's flavor?"  The whole world may not see our bad behavior, but there is always someone watching that God has charged us with reaching.  My prayer is that I don't fail God, and live my life for His Glory even when I think no one is watching!!!
