On this edition of Houston Matters, in our last program before Thanksgiving, we welcome your examples of people, places, events, and ideas you’re thankful for here in Houston.

And yes, we know, you’re thankful for your family and friends – we are too. Well, we don’t necessarily know your family and friends, but we’re thankful for ours. Which is not to say we’re not thankful you have family and friends to support you, mind you…uh, what were we talking about?

Oh yes, being thankful. So, what else are you thankful for here in Houston? From area shops and restaurants, to important services, to the fact that at least cold, wind, and rain is different from the weather we experience most of the year, we welcome your examples of things to be thankful for in Houston.

Also, we talk turkey – Houston-style. We’ll welcome your questions and comments for a pair of Houston-area chefs: Reynold Darthard, the Executive Team Chef for the Houston Astros, and Ronnie Killen, Executive Chef of Killen’s Steakhouse and the soon-to-open Killen’s Barbecue. We’ll discuss turkey recipes with a Houston flare, answer questions you may have about how to prepare your turkey, and consider options for how to reimagine all the leftovers.

Plus: Maybe you’ve always wanted to read all seven Harry Potter books, and just haven’t had the time. Let’s say you don’t even have 20 hours to spare watching all eight Harry Potter movies. Let’s say you have about 70 minutes. No problem. Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff covers it all…in admittedly abridged form. Potted Potter runs through December 1st at the Wortham Center Cullen Theater. Houston Matters’ Edel Howlin will have a report.
