Thank You Linda for the info!! SUPER important to make sure everything is safe!! So easy to make folks really sick. With a few simple thawing, cooking and cooling rules and all you have to worry about is which store to hit First on Friday, ERR,.Thursday night. !! Lol

I must keep my fridge really cold. I've never had success trying to thaw them in it. One is 10.5 the other a 9 lb. We are frying them.

I'll keep checking mine and maybe will pull it out for a half hour here and half hour there to help.

Ladies, it is Perfectly fine to run tap water over frozen food to help with de frosting. Fridge is preferred but faucet in A pinch.

13 lbs and it's been there two days, still hard a s rock here too. FYI-Last year I kept poking it and it was nicely thawed (so I thought). When I pulled it out the bottom was still frozen solid. Had to do the drip.

I know, they are so sneaky! Even when the outside feels thawed, the cavity is still frozen and it's hard to get all the junk out of the trunk :)
