How to Cook a Turkey (2012 edition)

Every year we celebrate Thanksgiving with our friends from story hour with a big lunch (all the holiday foods - turkey, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie). The story hour teacher always takes pictures of each of the kids and asks them how they cook a turkey. You can read last year's recipes here. This year, Second Daughter and Second Son refused to give a recipe, but the other two had some interesting suggestions.

First Daughter (6 years old):
  1. Get a turkey.
  2. Buy it.
  3. Cook it in the stove for 30 minute at 10 degrees.
  4. Eat it.

First Son (8 years old, just a month shy of 9):
  1. First, get some baby turkeys.
  2. Wait until they grow up.
  3. Grab a turkey, if you can.
  4. Break off all its feathers.
  5. Then you add some spices and some grease to it.
  6. Put it in the oven at 298 degrees Fahrenheit.
  7. Cook it 38 minutes.
  8. When the time is up, take it out, stuff it with onion (if you like).
  9. Then take off a leg, wing, breast, whatever you prefer.
  10. Then eat it. Enjoy!
Enjoy indeed!


  1. This had me laughing out loud! You should save these and print them out the first time you visit their houses for a holiday when they're adults!

    1. Oh, yes, that's why I had to post it, so I would remember!


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
