My blog publishes early this week, as I’m off to the South for Thanksgiving. A teacher friend of mine asks her first graders each year to write a recipe for preparing turkey. This one made me roar with laughter:
Go buy a pink turkey the size of your face, about 10 pounds, from Home Depot. Put it in a pot with chunks of black pepper. Cook in the oven for twenty minutes at ten degrees. Serve with a few strawberries and lots of goldfish crackers.
Chef Micah titled his recipe Turkey Trot. Unfortunately, I’ll be out of town. Sorry to miss his culinary masterpiece.
