Gwyneth Paltrow took some heat not too long ago for posing draped in fur in an ad for Tod’s clothing. She’s recently given a public apology to her green and vegetarian fans and PETA, saying the fur was thrown over her at the last minute and she thought it was fake.
She told PETA, her and her husband, Coldplay front man Chris Martin, are “pretty much vegetarians,” and “we know it’s the best diet for us and our kids, and of course for animals and the environment.”
However, it seems as if she should have followed up the statement with, “Except for Thanksgiving, when we chow down on that fat bird.” In an article in the Huffington Post, she writes:
“Turkey will always be the main event of Thanksgiving (at least in my house) and a whole turkey is the way to go if you’re feeding at least 12. But if your party is smaller, the stuffed turkey breast turns out to be a great halfway point. Brining it overnight insures that you don’t need to baste it and it has a quick cooking time. Why should things be any less festive if dinner is just for two? I came up with these stuffed turkey burgers which were a giant hit in my house. They are the perfect solution for anyone who isn’t feeding a big group (or for a big group that wants to try something different!).”
Not only is she admitting to bringing bird into her home during Thanksgiving, but even giving you instructions for how to grind it and make patties.
While her and Chris may entertain family that eat turkey and they’re expected to cook it, considering her track record, she should probably be avoiding talking turkey patties on such as widely read blog.
Better yet, put some recipes up there for Tofurky patties! And make it for your house guests too.
