Don't You Dry on Me!

Well, we're at the six hour mark. Fred the turkey is looking pretty good. He's snug in his tinfoil comforter that I keep stripping away every 45 minutes to pour more drippings upon him.

I've lowered the temperature from 325 to 300 in hopes of avoiding any chances of drying him out. It's something Emily and I both fear so much that we added an extra layer of foil on him for good luck.

We're about an hour away from prepping all the side dishes. This should be interesting. We're under the belief that since this is all for fun it won't be stressful- but somehow the three of us know that when we're at zero hour things are gonna be hectic around here. I've gotta go prep myself for the madness, but I'll leave the menu down below for your enjoyment:

The Astoria House Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner Menu
  • Pigs in a blanket
  • Pepperoni and crackers
  • A 20lb turkey named Fred
  • Sweet Potatoes with Marshmellows
  • Crazy/Crunchy String bean casserole
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Stuffing
  • Corn
  • Can o' cranberry
  • Corn bread
  • Apple Sauce
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Apple Pie
  • Apple Crisp
All this food, and it looks like we're only going to be about 6-8 people right now...

You are probably wondering if we're absolutely nuts right now. The answer is yes, but we're happily insane.
