A Penny For Your Thoughts

By Nancy Whitaker


By the time this column prints, Thanksgiving will be over and you will have cooked your turkey. For some cooks it has become a tradition to fix the big bird and present it with all the trimmings. For others, cooking a turkey can be not only a new experience, but a challenging one.

I have prepared a Thanksgiving turkey for many years, but that does not mean I have never had any bad experiences. The first time for roasting a turkey can scare any novice cook especially if you have never attempted to cook one.

Most of us have encountered the age old problem of leaving the neck or gizzard bag inside the bird. This really doesn’t hurt anything, but can be embarrassing when someone carves the beautiful meat at the Thanksgiving Day feast. (oops)
