Hi, Here is a weather report for Thanksgiving. I think it will be pretty accurate.
Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder.
During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Please pass the gravy.
A weight watch and indigestion warning have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.
Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone.
Actually, 190 will result in a dry turkey. Temperatures should hover closer to 160 - 170.
Your probably right jespah. I didn't write this, I just cut and pasted.
Why should you never talk like a turkey?
Because it's bad to use fowl language!
How can you tell a male turkey from a female turkey?
The male is the one holding the remote control.
especially for Cav:
How many cooks does it take to stuff a turkey?
One, but you really have to squeeze him in!
I am off to Texas for Thanksgiving...will be back this weekend. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday and everyone gets stuffed!!!
(With whatever you like!)
Thanks Eva, a nice Thanksgiving to you too.
