(Ben Clark)
かんしゃさい しちめんちょう を やきあげる

This Thanksgiving I cooked a turkey by myself for the first time. When I bought the turkey it was frozen. The turkey weighed about 13 pounds. So, I had to thaw the turkey for about four days. Then, I had to pull the guts out of the middle. After that, I had to butter the turkey all over and add lots of salt and pepper. Also, I stuffed the inside of the turkey with onions and garlic. The turkey cooked in the oven for about four hours. I was worried the turkey might get dry and hard. However, when I cut it, the meat was very moist. In fact, the meat fell off of the bone.
