sue,

The flour is so the bag surface does not stick and bind to the turkey and then build up pressure and burst.

If the bag bursts, it creates a big mess in the oven.

Always coat the inside of the bag with flour.

btw, while flossing tonight I lost a filling. Would you or hubby want to over-see me replacing the filling? I left my dental kit at work, and working via a mirror is tough. I will do all the dentistry, just make sure I'm filling the correct tooth.

Groan I have to agree w/ RI...oven bag all the way (although I never really understood the need for the 2T of flour in the bag...anybody know?)

Great tip for rookies: If you invite your mother-in-law to come and have dinner with all of your family and she giggles nervously and then says she'll think about it (just after she got done telling you that she had no plans on said day), it means she would rather gouge her eyes out with forks and you are never to invite her again.

What do you call a 190 lb turkey?

Bill Self!

There is NO excuse to get beat AT HOME by an unranked team. Self didn't get them to adapt at all.

Just use a Reynolds® Oven Bag, Quick, clean, easy, always moist. Fire and forget.

Don't forget to scrub out the birds cavity with salt, and rinse well.

I've tried and tried to tell people how I always cooked a 20 pound turkey in four hours or less, but I guess no one believes me, as no one ever tried it.

They still insist on roasting the damn thing all night until it's so dry you could rub the drumsticks together and make fire...my mother did it the overnight way, and so I was about 23 before I realized I LIKED turkey.

This method comes from a 1950s Betty Crocker cookbook, for all you naysayers out there, and it works like a dream:

(oh, yeah, please remember to take the bird out of the freezer and put it in a pan of COLD water to thaw for about a day and a half first, or NO method of cooking will work :), change the water every couple of hours or so, and take the wrapper off first! )

Anyway, back to cooking a 20 pound turkey in 4 hours or less:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Take thawed bird and slather the outside all over with butter or margarine. After that, rub the bird inside and out with salt to taste...I didn't usually use more than 3 or 4 tsp for the whole bird.

Line roaster with heavy duty, wide aluminum foil, with the shiny side toward the bird. (if you put the shiny side out, it reflects a lot of the heat back into the oven, and it takes longer to cook)

Put turkey inside the aluminum foil. Stuff bird if that's what you do, but I never did. Close the foil around the bird, and crimp closed. Put lid on roaster. Put bird in oven and forget about it for at least 3 hours. No basting. With the butter and the foil trapping everything in, it basically bastes itself. Keep the temp at 450 the entire time.

After about three hours, remove bird from oven, take off roaster lid, open the foil, put bird back in oven without roaster lid, so the little beauty can brown a little.

Don't be surprised if the meat is starting to fall off the bone after only three hours. The thing will be so moist it will practically squirt broth at you when you eat it. Use broth in the foil, about half and half with water, and add a little bit of cornstarch for great gravy.

This method even works with the turkeys that have the little pop-out button to tell you it's done.

I never started cooking a turkey until at least 8 AM on Thanksgiving day, and it was always done by dinnertime.

I always made three kinds of pies, apple, cherry and pumpkin, plus candied sweet potatoes (no marshmallows, yuck), homemade cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing (in the oven, but not in the bird), etc., etc.

Now of course, I live in a little three room hellhole that heats up like a blast furnace every time you use the oven, even in the winter, so I don't cook much anymore.

Is your dinner roll recipe the same as mine?

To wit: purchase a bag of Rhodes Cracked Wheat rolls from the store, follow thawing/rising/baking instructions on bag, and enjoy. For those white-bread folks in your life, the white rolls are pretty good, too.

I used to make old-fashioned baking powder biscuits, but I have to admit I love the flavor of real yeast dough better than a quick bread. And who has time to do yeast dough from scratch on T day? I know... I could do it earlier and freeze it myself, but Mama Rhodes does such a good job...

"Pantless Friday"?

I know I was wearing a rubberized lab apron, gloves and a pair of rubber muck boots, but I'm not sure what else. I did have the experience once (just once) of learning that a drop of perchloric acid on a pair of wranglers can cause them to "flame up" I had diluted it to what I considered a safe c But there is nothing better for cleaning a shower door.

Pie all around. (How easy it is to be a gracious virtual hostess!)

Yes, Sue, I agree. Seeing a man cleaning anything makes most of us positively swoon. (The 6 hours he takes on a Sunday, shining up an already immaculate motor vehicle, do not count! And MINE cannot understand why I LIKE to keep the back window of the car filthy--the better to avoid having to see the headlights of the damned behind me..)

The best "cleaning incident" we ever had, if you can call it that, was the night the food fight continued from the table into the kitchen and he fell backward over the open door of the dishwasher as he tried to fend off the mashed potatoes I was stuffing down the front of his pants.. Yes--we got allllll cleaned up eventually.

I'll have to remember to have him wear a face mask & regulator next time we mix it up in the kitchen with the leftover dinner. That would be the finishing touch.

IP, Pick me! Pick me! (I just wanted to join the fight over which one of us will have the pleasure of watching you eat turkey.)

Yes, never try a new recipe out on friends. I made these brownies the other night (along with some mini quiches and taco-pizza roll thingies) and they were downright inedible! Too bad for my guests as it was the only dessert I had. amazingly, they weren't half bad the next day.

Py, may I have a slice of virtual pecan pie, please? And you're right about RI's spousal unit. The sight of a man cleaning the bathroom (or anything for that matter) is always very stimulating. She was done for!

sweet_sue:) Meerkat Manor is a riot!! A soap opera as only research on "social" animals can produce, narrated by Sean Astin. It's on Animal Planet, Friday evenings 7:00 - 7:30. Harvard student research in the Kalahari Desert, 3 clans of meerkats, the main group is the "Whiskers," they control a two square mile area of the dessert. A matriarchial society, their dominant female is "Flower." Constant turf battles, wandering romeos from neighboring clans and bad girls who sneak off to meet them. Great fun to watch . . . although they warn you these are true life situations . . . I was unprepared for baby "Blossum" to be carried off by a goshawk :*(

I_P - here is an alternative to the beer and chili. Just hop on over to Lakeside, Calif. (just a bit east of San Diego) and you can have a lovely turkey dinner with my sister and I and her family. We would love to have you. I am heading down there on Friday morning for a 10 day visit with Sis. I'll be so glad to leave the snow behind. We already have more than a foot of the stuff. Yuk!!! Tips for rookies - never try a new recipe for guests. A friend tried a new roasting method for turkey. Put it in oven frozen for 2 hours at 500*. Not good. outside done, inside still bloody and raw.

"Guess I'm gonna have to pull on the waders & gloves, strap on the face mask, and go to it."

The second time my spousal unit met me (she was schmeckin around with a friend of mine at that time), She and my friend had came calling, and as I peregrinated out of my bathroom wearing rubber gloves, a scuba tank on my back, breathing out of the regulator (think the dark vader sound) and face mask, She was rolling on the floor in spasms (I wasn't immediately sure if it was laughter or from the fumes)
I had been cleaning my bathroom, shower, and those damn glass shower doors with hydrochloric and perchloric acid, as I did every normally every 6 months or so.

I guess it was a good thing I was not wearing my fins.

Now go fill your pie hole with pie and let me rib people in peace.

Speaking of pie, I make a strawberry-rhubarb-cranberry pie for the holidays that people go nutz over. Pumpkin is good (and we have that, too), but I like the surprise element of marrying tradition (the cranberries) to a little bit of holdover spring (the rhubarb & strawberries frozen earlier in the year)... It's a colorful reminder that the cold, gray time of year won't last forever. Serve it hot with ice cream. Mmmmmmm....

Ceal,

It's very kind of you to invite i_p to your thanksgiving.

Years ago when my girlfriend/spousal unit and I had true "KU" connections (rather than solicits for money), we used to invite "homeless" students for thanksgiving and x-mas. It was just the two of us, and we had 10 chairs at the table, so we usually ended up with 16 guests.

Pywacket 7 years, 5 months ago

Oh, geez, Sue.. Now my Guilt-o-Meter light is flashing. I was studiously ignoring the fact that it's trash day, but the combination of trash day AND Nat'l Clean Out the Fridge Day has pushed me over the edge. Guess I'm gonna have to pull on the waders & gloves, strap on the face mask, and go to it.

That also reminds me to get outside and start doing my sinuous, scantily clad Cold Weather Dance to appease the gods of Thanksgiving.

When it stays nice and cold, the patio table on the deck and any flat surface in the garage are quite serviceable auxiliary refrigerator shelves. (Yes, I have even lined the hood of the car with pies. Weren't goin' nowhere...)

I hate it when summer rears its ugly head in late November, and I actually have to get creative (and brutal in my fridge cleaning) to find space for all the leftover turkey, dressing, taters, baked squash, etc., etc.

Sgt~ Why, no--I see four responses, along with four photos of interesting L'villagers. The last response, by a Nadine Hodie, was particularly amusing. What's wrong with your computer? ;-)

Tyger_lily's reminder to thaw the bird completely reminds me of the funniest Thanksgiving movie I've ever seen-- Pieces of April, starring Katie Holmes. To enjoy it, you must first put aside any rancid connotations the title conjures up (rest assured, it does NOT feature that smarmy mid-70s song!!), as well as any "retch-ed" associations to Tom Cruise that Katie brings up... The movie is hilarious. I give you my word.

It would be a great one for all my fellow football haters (sorry, sgt!) to watch while sitting around half comatose after the T dinner. Take the wine box or the Jack bottle in the living room so you don't have to pause the movie to get a refill.

RI, pull out dictionary...look up craw. Here, I'll save you the trouble:

Craw 1. the crop of a bird or insect

Now, I would argue that a "crop" is what a farmer puts in the field. A "craw" can only be one thing. You should know that, being a backwards Iowa boy! :P

Ceal, where is there a meerkat named Flower? Have I not watched enough Disney?

sunflower_sue 7 years, 5 months ago

Ceal, I empathize with your daughter. I know what it's like to be in a crimson/blue/purple marriage. Our children popped out one of each. (There is still time to sway the purple one.)

Just thought of a Thanksgiving Day necessity, and since it's "National clean out your fridge day," it's pretty good timing, as well. Clean out the fridge (if it's cold enough outside, you can put the beer just outside the door). You need LOTS of room for those leftovers! And you'll want to wipe down the shelves as well so those nasty "white glove test" friends and relatives have nothing at which to turn up their nose.

bobberboy 7 years, 5 months ago

Roast your turkey in a plastic oven bag. Gravy - pour the drippings into a container - wait for the fat to separate from the broth - pour the fat into a skillet and add flour (don't make it too thick) - slightly brown the flour in the fat - add back in the broth and let thicken and serve. Make you stuffifng with chicken broth not water. Use whole cranberries and make your own cranberry sauce. Pumpkin pie is always the best if you use fresh meat out of the pumpkin itself. Just steam the pumpkin until it's cooked through and use it instead of the canned type. ENJOY. P.S. Have a glass of Asti with your meal.

I'm like Christy . . . I go to my sister-in-law's house. Thanksgiving is a family gathering time for us, young'uns, old'uns, and everyone in between :) After dinner we oftimes storm a movie theatre to catch one of the new releases that are suitable for family viewing.

enoch, I like the spiral cut Honey Baked Ham! Yummy and easy to serve :)

Several years ago my daughter, a freshman at the time, was a member of the KU Marching Band. They went to Manhattan for a football game, in uniform, to support the Hawks. Their bus doors were pelleted with fruit whenever they tried to exit. They were unable to do so until the police arrived and cleared the way for them to go into the stadium. The KU-KSU rivalry is still alive and well. However, the trauma was relatively short-lived, she married a KSU alum :) It's nice to have an anonymous board on which I can admit that :P

TOB: OSU tends to take football a bit more seriously than Michigan, only in the sense that football spawns violence and bad behavior. Michigan is very intense about the OSU game, but I have spoken to OSU fans who said no matter what, they felt safe in Ann Arbor, even wearing their OSU gear. In contrast, many Michigan fans who travel to Columbus say they actually do fear for their personal safety. On the pro side of things, I know of one U-M sports photographer who photographed one UM-OSU game in Columbus and vowed never to go for another one, no matter how much they offered to pay.

In a very small defense of the Buckeyes, it's a different setting there. Michigan is set in a real college town; OSU is set in a big city. So there is much more of an unsavory element that is all too happy to elevate the problem.

But that is only a small defense. This behavior is just too much a part of the culture in Ohio -- Columbus was just as unfriendly last year when Texas came to town. Big games bring out the worst.

(So I don't sound like a biased jerk, let me say that I know Ann Arbor and Michigan fans are far from problem-free. But most would admit that Columbus and OSU have some pretty serious issues when it comes to football-related behavior.)

And yeah, ticket prices are absurd. I was fortunate enough to acquire tickets for last year's game in Ann Arbor for face value. But most years, I just can't afford to get into that game. It's usually too expensive when Notre Dame comes to town, too.

acg 7 years, 5 months ago

Start the day before. Get all of your dessert baking done on Wednesday, and bake twice as much as you'll need because if your husband and kids are like mine, it won't last until Thanksgiving. Cook the turkey overnight, slowly, on a very low temperature so it's basically done Thanksgiving morning. That frees up your oven for breads, stuffing, yams, etc. on Thanksgiving Day. Remember to buy all of your liquor on Tuesday night so you'll be prepared and won't have to make that pesky trip out. Oh, and Jack Daniels is your friend. At least he's always been a good turkey day friend to me. :)

Sarge - Game related violence. You all take your football pretty seriously. Our game related violence incidents usually involve KU/MU hoops.

Is there really only one answer with no picture? That's what I'm seeing.

My tip? Let someone else do the cooking. I definitely don't prepare food; I leave that for other members of my family. You know, the ones who are competent in a kitchen.

As to yesterday's Michigan/Ohio State post: I am not surprised Michigan's dean warned students about traveling to Columbus this weekend. Amused, but not surprised. A friend of mine recently moved to Columbus from Ann Arbor, and he is making a point to change his license plates before the game so his car doesn't suffer any damage.

Though some of the jokes are fun, I actually hate that the potential for game-related violence is a news item at all. It's bad for football.
