How To Cook A Turkey ...

11/21/2007 - Paintsville Elementary School

Mrs. Pugh's Kindergarten Class

We don't have any turkeys near our house to shoot, so we will have to buy one at the store. Bring it home and open it and stuff it with applesauce. Close it up with a zipper or a key. Bake it twenty five minutes in the oven on ten percent. Have apple juice with it.

Tommy Maynard

I'd go and ask Uncle Jayson to shot a turkey. Then you peel off the feathers and wash it with water. You bake it on the stove that has to be a little hot. You bake it until fifteen to seven. Then you take it out of the oven and let it cool and eat it.

Bryce Ward

Get a turkey from the grassland, of course! Shoot it and wipe that stuff off with a wet paper towel. Well, maybe put some spray butter on it and a little bit of tomato juice. Put it in a pa and put the pan into sixty degrees ten minutes. When it comes out, put cheese crackers and ham around it and that's it.

Kendall Brescoach

Get a turkey at the barnyard. I'd shoot it with an arrow. Then you chop its hands off with a Ninja knife and pull the feathers off real slow so the blood wont come out. Then put it in a pan and grill it in the microwave for fifteen hours. Then I'll get a spoon and knife and fork and eat it up. I'll have some sprinkles on its head.
