How Not to Cook a Turkey

Decorate your home with beautiful things.
Invite a houseful of guests.
Spend Christmas Eve afternoon preparing wonderful dishes.
Set a lovely table.
Greet guests with spiced hot apple cider and gifts.

Forget to turn on the oven to cook the turkey.

Eat ham with "all the trimmings".

Never let Mom (who has a BA in Home Economics) live this one down.

And have a fantastic Christmas day...even without the turkey.

  1. I once roasted our thanksgiving turkey in a disposable aluminum pan. There was a tiny hole in the pan which allowed the grease to drip on the element, resulting in a grease fire. Of course, we had a house full of company. I had to open all of the windows in the house to clear the smoke. It's funny how the mishaps mark a stand-out holiday!
