We weren't the only ones that thought pepper-sprayed turkey might taste delicious. Martha Stewart went ahead and sprayed her bird down on the Today Show -- a "trick she learned from U.C. Davis." In practice, it doesn't look as delicious as we'd been led to believe. Too sticky. [Hulu via Jay Leno]
Speaking of Thanksgiving, not all of us are Martha Stewarts in the kitchen. For those too busy to get the holiday act together, The Awl provides us with 22 Awesome Last Minute Holiday Recipes. We should warn you, that title's a bit misleading for this video -- the actual recipes are below it in the post. This is more like A Single Depressing Thanksgiving Food Moment. [The Awl]
