Have you ever wondered what your kids would do if they had to do the Thanksgiving preparations? Well, wonder no more – here is the scoop right from the kid’s themselves !!!!
Students from the second grade class at Cherokee Roosevelt Elementary School recently wrote about how to cook a Thanksgiving Turkey. The following are their instructions on how they would cook a turkey…………..
If I Made a Thanksgiving Turkey……
Go to a store and buy a turkey. Not T.J. Max because they only have shirts. Go to the grocery store and ask the meat person to cut off the wings. You need about 60 pounds of turkey.
We buy a small turkey, about 100 pounds. We put spice and pepper all over so it is really hot. Then we add sugar. You can put candy in the middle. That’s the stuffing.
First I’d go and buy the turkey. Then I would take it home. Then put it in the oven for 30 minutes. I would set it for 69 degrees F. Then take it out of the oven and put it on the table. I would serve it with corn, mashed potatoes, and my favorite, crescent rolls.
I would buy a turkey. Then I would get it ready to cook. Then I will cook it. Then I will set the time for 15 minutes. The temperature will be 16 degrees. I would have beans and grapes with it.
Get a turkey from a store. Then bring the turkey home. Then cook the turkey at about 100 degrees. Then the time can be 40 minutes or 60 minutes. Then put the stuff in the turkey. When the turkey is done bring the turkey out of the oven. Then put other food out on the table. Then cut the turkey. Then you can eat the turkey and the other food.
I would go to the store to get a turkey. Then I would make sure it didn’t have any fat. I would put it in for a whole day. I would put the temperature for 100 degrees. Then I would have a green bean casserole and a pie after dinner.
I would go to the store to get a turkey. I would cook it for 5 minutes. The stove has to be 100 degrees. I would have mashed potatoes with it.
I would have to go to the store to get the turkey. Then I would have to put the turkey in the oven. The temperature would be 100 degrees. It would be in the oven for one hour. We would also have mashed potatoes and carrots and soups.
I would buy a turkey and put my mom’s favorite powder on it. The turkey now goes in the oven for 90 degrees. I would leave it in for one hour and make mashed potatoes and corn. Then my mom helps me take the turkey out of the oven. Then we eat and pray.
I would buy the turkey at Fareway. Then I would cut one end open and take the guts out. Then I would put it in the oven for 30 minutes then it would be done. The temperature is at 60. I would make stuffing and mashed potatoes.
We buy a turkey from a store and take the wrapper off. We set the oven for 35. 2 hours. We have peas and mashed potatoes and banana bread. We all pitch in the work.
We get a turkey and bring it home. Then we would put the turkey on a platter. Then put it in the stove to 105 degrees. And we cook it for two hours. Take it out and put side dishes with it like potatoes and corn and stuffing and deviled eggs too. After we are done eating we play football and other games.
I would get my dad to shoot a turkey. I would get a pan and stick it in the oven. I would put the temp to 52 degrees. I would leave it in for 7 minutes. I would have mashed potatoes and apple pie.
I would get turkey in a store. I would put some leaves on the turkey. I would set it for 50 minutes. I would set it for 10 degrees. I would put it with mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and turkey. That is how I make my turkey.
I would go to a grocery store to get my turkey. I would cut the string off of the turkey and wash it with warm water. I would let the oven sit for 20 minutes and heat up. Then I would keep it in the oven for 10 minutes. 85 degrees. I would have it with some potatoes and gravy and pumpkin pie.
I would buy a turkey. I would bake it in the oven for 9 minutes and 100 degrees. It is done. I would make corn and mashed potatoes and eat it all up.
You have to put vegetables on it so it tastes good. I should put it in for 3 hours. You should put it on 100 degrees. You should let it out to cool. We have mashed potatoes.
I would go hunting to get the turkey. I would build a fire. I will have a fish. I will cook the food for a half hour.
First I would go to the store and buy the turkey. Then I would bring it home and put it in a round, oval pan and then put some pepper and a little salt on it and put some seasoning on it. Then I would put a cooking leaf in it and then I would turn the oven on and turn the heat to 500 degrees and put the turkey in the oven for 3 hours. Then while I was waiting I peeled some potatoes and cut them up and then take the pot out. Then I got a bag of corn and put the corn in a glass bowlish kind of pot and then I put the corn in the microwave for 10 minutes. Then the turkey was ready so I took the turkey out and put the potatoes in the pot and stuck it back in the oven for 2 more hours. Then after I just stuck the turkey back in the oven for 2 more hours I got out the ingredients to make an apple pie. I got out sugar and flour and the pie pan and other stuff and started to make the pie and when I was done making the pie I put the pie in the oven for an hour. Then the turkey was ready and the corn was ready and the pie was ready and everything was ready to serve so I took everything to the table and I started to wait for my parents and my grandma and my aunts and uncles and my brother and my two sisters. Then we ate our Thanksgiving meal.
