artichoke pesto HELP!

So, I made it...I threw canned artichokes, grated cheese, garlic, pignoli nuts, olive oil and PARSLEY in the food processor. Came out beautifully...I reccomend to all. Great cold or hot or even spread on some brucestta toast, pizza, focaccia or even as a dip with some pita chips.

Where to order a Thanksgiving turkey?

I think Fresh Direct is a safe bet, but you can try Jive Turkey (you'll be surprised by the options) if you feel like heading to Brooklyn. In the city, Butterfield Market, Zabars, Whole Foods, Dean and DeLuca or even Hill Country.
