My favorite meal of the year is the turkey and all the fixin's for Thanksgiving. So a few years ago, as a poor college student who also happened to not know how to cook, I endeavored to make Thanksgiving day dinner for my friends. I happened upon a funny little bag that was supposed to help you cook your turkey faster. Well I was all for that, so I gave it a try. These "turkey bags", which you can find in your grocery store for less than a buck a piece (usually they are a couple dollars but come in packages of 2), not only cook a turkey quickly, but it turns out wonderfully every time! I can get a thawed turkey in the oven in 10-15 minutes. All you really need to do is wash the turkey in cold water, pat dry, take the "innards" out, put a TBS. of flour in the bag, then put the turkey in the bag (which is sitting in a roaster pan) tie it up, prick it with a knife a few times, and stick it in the oven. So easy and so tasty! Hope that helps someone who is otherwise intimidated by the big bird;) as I was several years ago!
