Eating Cupcakes

i wasn't sure where to put this topic but here looks good. so a few days ago the topic of eating a cupcake came to light when i noticed someone eating it the sandwich way. in other words they peeled off the liner took off the bottom half like an english muffin and made a sandwich using the icing as the filling. so i began to wonder how do you eat a cupcake?

what to do with bacon fat?

Literally everything. Fried eggs and hash browns tomorrow? Bacon fat. Roasted veg? Bacon fat. Out of butter? Bacon fat.
In all seriousness most savory dishes could that don't involve super high hear could do with replacing normal oil with a but of bacon fat.

What favorite food is such a labor of love, time, technique or even money that rarely make it but when you do…

Thanksgiving dinner. The whole thing, turkey, gravy, potatoes, stuffing and everything else. Feeds 20. One person. One day. From scratch.

What should I cook?

So I have some sweet Italian sausages, ground beef (80/20), chicken thighs, a whole chicken, and stewing beef. I have a few hours to kill for lunch tomorrow and I'm out of ideas on what to make. Any suggestions?
Besides those proteins I have the essentials stocked and picking up a few things at the store isn't a problem nor are intricate procedures but no pasta dishes I've gotten a bit burnt out on them.

French Cookbooks

I'm looking a new French and/or British cookbook and would like to know which I should buy. I'm partial to Gordon Ramsay, Anthony Bourdain, Heston Blumenthal, and Eric Ripert. A good biography on those four would be appreciated too.

Desserts - NO fruit, chocolate, or pie

Cake, and he probably doesn't like cookies if he doesn't like pie so cake and pumpkin steamed with brown sugar cinnamon and nutmeg
it sound weird but thats what we've made for years

Turkey advice

due to the osmosis property of turkeys evens out moisture in the water and the turkey then it brings in the salt. along with the salt you can add what ever types of seasoning you want such as sage or garlic.
