So You Want to Deep Fry A Turkey? Think Safety First

In News on November 27, 2013 at 9:17 am


I love this ad. Have you had any Thanksgiving mishaps? One year my sister-in-law and I invited a neighbor family to join us for Thanksgiving. The wife accepted and said she would take care of the turkey. My sister-in-law and I made cakes, pies, vegetables. homemade rolls, venison and much more and then here came the neighbor with the turkey. First of all, there was NO chance this turkey was undercooked. I think it had been in the oven since Halloween. Second the stuffing consisted of a whole loaf of bread…yes, I mean a whole loaf, not shredded shoved into the turkey carcass  with an onion that was chopped in large pieces. No seasonings. Nothing else. No kidding.

Needless to say we NEVER asked her to cook anything else but we still invited them to every event over many years because maybe they couldn’t cook but they were wonderful friends.
