My cooking tragedies
My first Thanksgiving married I was so excited to make my first Turkey. I was very young, 18 years old, and we didn't have the money until right before Thanksgiving. I went to the store, the supply was limited and I got what I thought was a small turkey, it turned out to be a Hen. Also, I wasn't aware of the thawing time needed and our fridge was really good at keeping things frozen. Thanksgiving morning I took it out and it was still so frozen! I did as the instructions stated and put it in the sink of cold water for hours, changing out the water often. My hubby and I finally thought it was thawed enough and we set about baking it. It was nice and brown on top but when we cut it, it still bled and was frozen. I tried cooking for 2 more hours then gave up! It never did thaw!
