  1. This is helpful, though I can say that I will likely never cook a turkey – we used to just get a turkey or chicken breast and now I do my “one pot wonder” — all the traditional fixin’s for Thanksgiving and cooked in one pot (green bean casserole items in a pot and chicken pieces thrown in). πŸ™‚

  2. I’m surprised I haven’t killed myself or others with the way that I have carelessly dealt with Thanksgiving turkeys. I could tell you horrible stories about improper thawing, cooking turkeys that were rock-solid frozen, etc. I’m a real mess. Somebody must be looking out for me!
