Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap for November 2014. This week, 12 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
Each one is unique to it's owner and listed below are all the participants. I hope you'll show them some love by popping over to see what their challenge was all about.
The follow links will be up and running by 10 a.m. EST
Your “Secret Subject” is: It’s thanksgiving and all of the stores everywhere are out of turkeys. What’s Plan B?

So in the pretend world of SSS, it's the day before Thanksgiving and I have procrastinated. Now I head to the store to find that...dun dun dun NO TURKEYS can be found. Great. Now what?
So I head over to the Pig, nothing, Foodlion, nothing, Harris Teeter, still no turkeys. I hit the dreaded Wally World and they are out as well.
Here I sit in the parking lot trying desperately to figure out what I'm going to do. A ham! Why not a ham? So back into the store I go.
Guess what, no stinking hams either. Shoot.
YES, shoot! I'll call the local hunt club, maybe someone knows where I can scare up a wild turkey, pheasant or something.
After countless calls I still have produced not a dang thing.
On the drive through town I see my Aldi store, gosh I love this place. I pull in hoping against all hope that they have a turkey.
No such luck BUT I find some adorable little cornish game hens. WHY NOT! So I purchase a little hen for each guest along with all the normal fare. Stuffing, rice, collards, rolls, green beans, sweet potatoes so I can make my casserole, cranberry sauce, items for my MawMaw pie and the Chocolate Bliss cake!
Hot dang people I am set.
So home I go to start preparations. I work tirelessly until around midnight, done!
The next morning I get up and place my little hens , with my sticky rub, on them and place them in roasters. Into the oven they go. Oh the smell...yum.
Family is gathered, food is served, and yes we gobbled 'til we wobbled.
Everyone was thrilled with their own little bird. A delicious meal and a holiday saved!
