    Bought our Turkey!

    Advertisements
    So I bought our first turkey that I will be cooking all by myself! I am so excited that I will be cooking thanksgiving this year for my little family!


    I also got rolls (frozen dough that you bake), and stuff to make green bean casserole! Which I can't say that I have ever ate that before!

    I can't believe thanksgiving is already here!

    Hollykins, you will do GREAT! It's SO easy! Did you get one with a pop up timer? I used those the first few years I cooked and it was awesome! We didnt have one with a timer the last 2 years i think, but we found a 19lb one with a timer We're having some friends over this year so we got a big turkey! Anyways, don't forget to take pics

    Good question. lol. I just bought a butterball. I didn't pay attention to the pop up timer just the weight! I guess I should check. And also I kinda thought they all had the timer lol

    No but even my 19lb one says itll only take 4.5-5hrs, i think, of baking and so far, when we cooked the other 2 without the timers, they turned out well! I suppose you could always buy a meat thermometer, but we havent.

    I'm so ready for Thanksgiving. FOOOOOOD. First time in 3 or 4 years that I'll spend with my parents. (Moved to AK and spent last year with my inlaws.) We're hosting this year...but I'm not formal...it's about enjoying each other and havin' fun. So I'm settin' up the cornhole game in the yard and will have music goin'!
