So the most significant thing about last year's Thanksgiving is that the turkey came out RAW and frozen! My father brought a stuffed deboned turkey down from Arkansas. He stuffed it a few days before and froze it so it would make the 8 hour trip. We cooked and cooked and cooked the turkey. I knew something was wrong when the temperature of the bird didn't even register on my digital thermometer. Everyone kept insisting that my thermometer was broken or since it was stuffed the thermometer wasn't registering the temperature of the actual turkey meat. Boy, were they WRONG!
When my cousin cut into that bird, I started crying. I could not compose myself. So, they started putting the raw turkey in the microwave! The rest of the food was really good, so there was something to eat. And I didn't hear any stories of anyone getting sick. It was also really nice that my father came into town and I got to spend the holiday with my brother and sister from Arkansas.
We also got to go to the LSU/Arkansas game. It was really fun being able to take my siblings (who have been raised in Arkansas with that sooo-eee pig pig thing) to Tiger Stadium - AND have them cheering for LSU.
The funniest part - Saturday evening, my husband and I went to heat up leftovers in the microwave and guess what we found....yes, a plate of that raw stuffed turkey! Forgot to look in the microwave during clean up.
