Built a display prop, and decided to give it a bunch of extra functionality/usefulness via Android Things and the Google Assistant. Full tutorial up on Hackster.

Threw together a quick spotlight for the Android Things setup utility. It's a pretty straightforward tool, but not a ton of people know about it. I honestly love using it, especially after months of manually flashing devices.

Best part of Thanksgiving is the leftover turkey going into a gumbo the next day. Mom's friend in Louisiana sent this recipe to me about ten years ago, and I have been making it every year since.

TURKEY BONE GUMBO

Turkey bones After turkey has been carved, put bones in plenty of water and boild slowly for 1.5-2
Water hours or until remaining meat falls off the bone.
1/2 C bacon drippings or oil
1 C flour Make a roux of bacon drippings and flour. Add onions, garlic, bell pepper, celery
2 onions, chopped and cook until wilted. Add hot broth, salt and pepper, dash of Tabasco, bay
3 cloves garlic, minced leaves, basil and parsley. Cook for 1 hr.
1 bell pepper, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped Add turkey and sausage and cook for about 15 more minutes. Add green onions
2 qts turkey broth, approx and cook a few minutes longer.
Salt & pepper to taste
Tabasco Serve with cooked rice and add a dash of gumbo file (pronounce fee-lay) in each
2 Bay leaves dish if desired. Serves 6-8
1 t dried basil
1 T dried parsley
About 2 C chopped turkey Hylan's notes: This can also be made with chicken. Most of us around here carve
1 lb smoked sausage (preferably Andouille) all the white meat off the Thanksgiving turkey and then make the broth with what's
cut into bitesize pieces left.
Green onion tops

To make a roux (roo): Put bacon drippings or oil (best w/bacon drippings, of course!) into a heavy cast iron skillet, add the flour and stir all together. Put the heat on low and let the flour s l o w l y brown til a rich nut brown color. Stir the roux often so that it doesn't stick, scorch or burn. This can take up to an hour to do "the cajun way".

Work is doing a promotion where the first charities to hit $2500 donated will have a match of $2500 granted by the company. I started a campaign for Make-A-Wish and got that started to about half of the matching goal, if anyone else is interested in donating. https://workday.benevity.org/community/fundraiser/970
