And you thought I didn't cook...

TURKEY RECIPE

I thought this sounded good! Here is a turkey recipe that also includes the use of popcorn as a stuffing ingredient — imagine that. When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who just are not sure how to tell when turkey is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out. Give this a try.
  • 8 - 15 lb. turkey
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is Good)
  • 1 cup un-popped popcorn (ORVILLE REDENBACHER'S LOW FAT IS BEST)
  • Salt/pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter, salt, and pepper.

Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan making sure the neck end is toward the front of the oven, not the back.

After about 4 hours listen for the popping sounds.

When the turkey's ass blows the oven door open and the bird flies across the room,.... it's done.

Snow Humor

One winter morning a couple was listening to the radio over breakfast. They hear the announcer say, 'We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snowploughs can get through.'

Norman's wife goes out and moves her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer says, 'We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snowploughs can get through.'

Norman's wife goes out and moves her car again.

The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says, 'We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park ..........................'

Then the power dies.

Norman's wife is very upset, and with a worried look on her face she says, 'Norm, I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snowploughs can get through?'

With the love and understanding in his voice that some men who have been married for years exhibit, Norman says, 'Why don't you just leave it in the garage this time?'
