Thank God, I survived!

Well, today was Thanksgiving and I absent-mindedly volunteered to cook the dinner. I sent hubby to the store to get all the things I needed and he actually did a good job....with one exception....I told him to find a turkey big enough to feed 12 people.....he brought back Rodan!!! This bird was HUGE...it was 23 pounds and it barely fit into the oven I have. Then, after hoisting this larger than life bird in and out of the oven for basting...I pulled something out of whack...my body hurts, every muscle is screaming and I am beat. Who needs Pilates or Denise Austin...I have Rodan the turkey from hell!!!!! Well, this bird came out juicy and tender and tasted wonderful....so, when you wake up tomorrow morning and flip on Sesame Street for the kiddies...don't be shocked if Big Bird is not present....cause I think I cooked him!!!!! And he was gooooooooooood!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!!!!!

About time someone took care of Big Bird properly ... I'm just glad it wasn't Bert, Ernie or - heavens forbid - Oscar!

Morgan, I hear that ostrich meat is quite "sandy" and am not sure I can handle the grittiness...can that be fixed before then??

23lbs - a mere strip of a bird - now for the tub Christmas feast I have my eyes on a fine 32 pounder!!! Or if the tub gets too full - an ostrich might make a pleasant change!!!

Hope the back is better xx
