Thanksgiving, Turkey & A Few Mishaps Along the Way

 OK~ Our turkey is in the freezer.  I was forced to think of some past experiences with the turkey on Thanksgiving.  It's really not too difficult to cook a turkey~ the issues really begin to evolve in the preparation process.

You can never have too much soap handy when you are working with a thawed out turkey!  You must wash your hands after handling this slimy bird!  (This Mom has never had issues with this).

Here's where the issues have came into play:  Yep, this Mom admits it---She has cooked a turkey with the "stuff" in the neck- Now, I'm not referring to the stuffing, I am referring to that little packet of heart, giblets, etc............ I think I failed to tell anybody this until now!

And then there was the year that I failed to thaw the turkey out 100%.  For whatever reason, I was using a knife and I managed to break the knife out inside the turkey!  Here I was, knife handle in hand and the blade was stuffed into the turkey!

I'm hoping for a calm, uneventful Thanksgiving day in the cooking department this year. After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?


  1. Well, let's see. Needle.thread in the sewing kit somewhere in the house~ 2 cents!

  2. Hehe I hope your turkey comes out great and you have a nice Thanksgiving tomorrow :) My sister when she first got married she never really cooked and cooked her bird upside down! I still laugh thinking of a turkey upside down in her oven.


I always love feedback on my blog!
