You have to cook the turkey for about one hour at five-hundred
degrees before it is ready to eat. You can't just grab the turkey and
eat it after it cooks, you have to cut it up and not put anything on
the turkey. We would also have cabbage, spinach and broccoli to
eat with the turkey. I like all kinds of breads, jelly and juice to drink.
My cousins, friends and principal would come to eat.
After you bring the turkey home you have to take the feathers
off the turkey. I would cook the turkey in a pot on the top of the
oven with some water in the pot. It will only take a minute for
the turkey to cook if the water is real hot. I would cook some corn
and have milk and have my parents, my brothers and my dog
come and eat. We would put some turkey on the floor for my dog
After I buy the turkey I would grill the turkey for about fifteen-
minutes. You have to make sure the turkey is cut up so
everyone gets a part of the turkey. I would also cook ham,
chicken, cooked some oranges, have grapes and Mt. Dew to drink.
I would have plain cake with ice cream and would have my family,
my teacher, my principal and everybody in my class come
I would bake the turkey for fifty-hours at a real burning hot
temperature. After cutting the turkey up and making bread, I
would fix spaghetti and potatoes. We would have cherry
ice cream and my grandma, grandpa, my brothers and
sisters and my mom and dad would come to eat.
I would go out in the woods and catch the turkey and then
cook it a lot of hours at fifty-degrees. We also would have
a lot of pumpkin pies, carrots, apples, coke to drink. Mom and
dad and grandma would come and eat with me.
You could find a turkey at a farm but I would just go and get
a turkey at a farmers market. It would be a dead turkey with
no feathers on it. It would be better to cook it for ten hours
but I will cook it quick at five hours by turning up the heat
to five degrees. After it is cooked we will open it up and put
gravy inside. We would also have some mashed potatoes,
some beans and some chicken. We would drink fruit punch
and Dr. Pepper.
We do not have any guns at home to shoot a turkey so we
would have to go to the store and buy one. I would put the turkey
in the microwave at really hot for about twenty-minutes. Now
I would like to have just turkey and apple pie but that would not
be healthy so I would add a salad for us to eat. We would
also have some bread and orange juice to drink.
We would get a real big turkey from the store say about a
five pound turkey. Next you roast the turkey for six minutes
at twenty-degrees. We would also have macaroni, potatoes,
brownies and orange crust drink to drink. My cousins would
come to eat with my family.
After you buy the turkey and clean it, you cook it in the oven for
about four minutes between hot and cold. I would have corn,
carrots and cake to eat too. We would all drink Sprite.
