Turkey Prep

We got a frozen turkey for Thanksgiving, and while I had put it in the fridge a few days before to thaw, it was still pretty frozen on Wed. This posed something of a dilemma, since we wanted to brine the bird and it needed to be cleaned out first. Getting frozen “turkey parts” out of the inside of a frozen turkey was definitely a job for Daddy and His Helpers.

Not all of Daddy’s Helpers were super enthusiastic about the task.

In fact, there was a lot of “Ewwwwwww!” and “that is SO GROSS!” expressed during the process.

David had fun, as long as he didn’t have to touch anything.

In the end, the team persevered and was able to remove all the yucky, gross, smelly, inside parts. The turkey was brined, and dinner was delicious.

As a side note, we have now brined a turkey in a cooler and a brining bag. I won’t bother the bag again. It was awkward and it leaked all over the downstairs fridge. Anything that makes MORE work after the holiday goes on my “no” list. It goes on another list, too, but I won’t print the title to that one.


December 1, 2010. Daddy, David, holidays, Matthew, the boys.
