I am practicing today.  On Christmas day, at my daughter’s house, we will cook a turkey.  My son, my daughter, my son-in-law and I have never cooked a turkey.  Despite the reassurances from my brother that this is no great deal, we all are not so sure!

So, I decided to invite a family over tonight to try out a turkey.  One that I would cook.

Now, I guess I got this approach to cooking from Jill.  If you are going to have to cook something, make it something new.  If they don’t like it, you can call it a trial.  If they like it, you put it in your recipe book.

20 minutes per pound (this is 4 kgs – so 3 hours).  And don’t put the stuffing inside – keeps the insides from heating up.  Make the stuffing separately.  The three basic instructions my brother gave me.

I can hardly wait.  Might blog about this in the next while.  Or, might not, depending on how it goes!!!
