We Didn't Cook This Turkey...


Although it nearly cooked us. I ended up making a teeny tiny 20 pounder, baked it in a cooking bag with orzo and porcini stuffing, and called it a day.

This baby weighed 40 pounds after it had been plucked, etc. As you can see from this picture, it wasn't quite plucked yet.

There is no possible way I could have shoved it into my oven, without the aid of a chainsaw.
I have never been so happy for a bland, Butterball, cook-it-in-a bag store bought bird in all my life.
I would make a lousy pioneer woman.
p.s. if you need a great book idea for a girl on your Christmas list, check out the review blog for a wonderful book.

That is almost obscenely large! :)

I'm glad you found a replacement and were able to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner after all!

Whoa, forget the plucking, that baby needs a waxing!

Didn't your dinner guest supply it? I have to wonder why they didn't have it all plucked?

suburbancorrespondent said...

Thanks for totally grossing me out. What happened with it?

painted maypole said...

ok, what is the whole story behind that huge turkey?

see, i always leave the turkey cooking to others. if it's up to me, it's ham, baby.

Lawyer Mama said...

Oh this is too funny!

Circus Kelli said...

Seriously... that is one big fat bird. It's the THOUGHT that counts, after all. :)

Anna said...

I think this is where the turkey on the grill comes in.

congrats on your novel work, how exciting! Who needs nablopomo when you are writing a whole book! hooray!

Crystal said...

What did you do with that HUGE thing?
PS - I just tagged you for a meme.

I'm certain it was delicious, but that picture is seriously frightening!

Amy said...

Put something else up, i can't look at that photo one more time! i'll never eat a turkey again.

Sarcasta-Mom said...

Ellew..... What ended up happening to that thing?

Tee said...

My whole family would starve if I was a pioneer woman. I can't handle raw meat without gagging. That pic made me nauseous. LOL... I was happy to eat Thanksgiving at my Mom's house.

Lela said...

I think that turkey could eat me alive.

Godzilla Bird

Julia Child would have used a chain saw.

Candy said...

I think that turkey has rosacia. It's probably a good thing you didn't eat it.

bermudabluez said...

Wow! I've never seen a turkey that big! Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving after all!

Dear Get in the Car:
I know you aren't posting daily, but you must give us something besides the big scary dead bird to look at. Cute kid photo? Nature shot? Something? Everytime I check back on the blog I have to squint to protect my fragile eyes...kind of like when I watch Dr. 90210.

Had to forgo the turkey this year; we always have so much left over that it's mostly tossed out. Went with a nice, satisfying ham instead.

Amy said...

you are a hateful woman! take that photo down!

BOSSY said...

Wow. Think of the amount of Tryptophan in that thing.

Last year, my husband ordered a 20# turkey from some people who sell at our local greenmarket. When he went to pick it up, there were no 20# birds - there was a choice of 12 or 30. He chose 30. Any sane person would have taken one 12, or even two if necessary. Nope. And, that turkey DID NOT fit in the oven and he had to butcher it before cooking. Men.
