How Do You Cook a Turkey?: From the Mouths of 5-year-olds
By Mrs. Poirot's Kindergarten ClassGuest Column
Kindergarteners at Hoosac Valley Elementary working diligently at home to share their Thanksgiving recipes.
ADAMS, Mass. — Each year, the kindergartners in Robin Poirot's class at Hoosac Valley Elementary School offer their estimations on how long it takes to cook a turkey — in sizes ranging from three to 100 pounds.
Their Thanksgiving recipes are always amusing and sometimes enlightening, particularly the choices of stuffing, but we must strongly caution against following any of their directions as a matter of public health.
Well, first you would have to go to the store and grab a 10-pound turkey. After I bring it home in a bag, I would put it in the oven for only 3 degrees for 5 minutes. That will definitely turn the color brown. That is how you will know that it is ready to eat! When it cools, we eat it with lots of mashed potatoes on the side. YUM!
I would buy our 100-pound turkey at the new Adams Market. It would be so heavy that we would have to pull the turkey and drag it to the car just to make it there.
