A Paula Deen Thanksgiving
Home Is Where the Stove Is
"When Uncle Bubba's opened, in 2004, there we were, all back together again on Thanksgiving, workin' in the restaurant," says Corrie.
"I remember," says Bubba. "We'd been super busy for the week before and on Thanksgiving, about 3 or 4 o'clock, Paula and I looked at each other and she said, 'Oh my God, we're outta turkeys.' So we jumped in the car and went to Kroger and Publix and found some more turkeys and hams and we fed about 1,100 people.
"Lately," Bubba continues, "we work all Thanksgiving and when the restaurant closes, we sit at the bar and eat."
"When our guests are gone, we've been known to go into the kitchen and take a few gobbles out of the pots," says Corrie. "Everyone's drinkin' Diet Pepsi and, eventually, you'll hear a burp. Then another. Paula has done some very loud burps herself!"
