Welcome to Home Skillet, where “jive turkey” isn’t an insult, but rather an honest appraisal of one’s Thanksgiving bird (jive meaning good and turkey meaning turkey). Happy gobble day, everyone. Here are this week’s events:
Thursday, November 26: Plenty of area restaurants are open and serving special Thanksgiving meals on the big day. Here are just a few:

New Castle’s Prince on Delaware is doing a special Thanksgiving menu with slow-roasted turkey and chef Prince Johnson’s secret-family-recipe sausage and wild rice stuffing. Other great entrées and soups are available, too. Call 326-1130 to reserve your spot.
Friday, November 27: Wilmington’s venerable Moro Restaurant will host an evening of wine and haute cuisine Friday night for The Wines of Robert Mondavi six-course wine dinner.
