No...I'm not talking about real estate!
I'm in charge of our Kentucky Christmas dinner at my house this year. So I'm looking at this frozen turkey and trying to wish it to be thawed.
This will be the first time I have baked one. I feel better that I have watched Christina Ferrare on Oprah bake chickens and a turkey. I have baked a few to test the recipe. It was awesome! I have her recipes and a video if I get stuck.
My Mom called on Sunday to see if I had put it in the refrigerator. She's always early for everything. She already has pecan tarts and cranberry salad made. I let her know I was in charge of this bird and it would start thawing soon!
I read on the Butterball helpline to allow one day for every 4 pounds. So I though I would start on Monday. Well Monday night it was still quite frozen! So I sat it out for an hour or so. Today...it still has a ways to go. I keep checking on it. Poking it with my finger as a thawing indicator.
Hopefully, Christmas morning it will be ready to bake. This is quite the experience!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
