Happy Thanksgiving!

Darius’ Turkey Recipe

  1. Go into the woods and look beside the bush. When you see three, take the first one in line because it will be the good one. Grab it and put it in a bag.
  2. When you get it home chop it up with a knife. Peel the feathers off.
  3. Put a little bit of ketchup inside every piece.
  4. Put it in the oven for 6 minutes. It will get fatter in the oven and when it’s real fat it will be done. Then you eat it with some toast and chicken.

Lizeth’s Turkey Recipe

  1. Go to the zoo and ask for a turkey. Take a little one.
  2. Put it in the oven. Put in one tortilla with it.
  3. Put the circle on the oven on the number 10 and leave the turkey there for an hour.
  4. When it is done it will look like chicken. Now you eat it and use your napkin.

Cassidy’s Turkey Recipe

  1. Go to the Jackson forest. Look on the ground cause that’s where they stay. Get the one with the colored feathers. Use a net.
  2. Put him in a box and take him home.
  3. Take him out of the box and pull the feathers off and throw them in the garbage.
  4. Put 1 inch of butter on top. Put a boxful of grits inside him.
  5. Cook him in the oven for about 10 minutes.
  6. Open the oven and see if he looks kind of brown. If he is then take him out.
  7. Make some stuffing out of rice mixed with marshmellows.
  8. Make some cake and put some icing on top. Then you pray and start eating.

    So sweet! Reminds me of the book of recipes my sister's kindegarten class made for Mother's Day (20 years ago!), which included my personal favorite for chinese food that started with “Get the take-out menu from next to the phone and call the restaurant….” 🙂

    Thanks, everyone, for reading our recipes. The kids loved doing them and the real joy of this project is seeing the certainty with which they dictate their ideas. May your day be “stuffed” with blessings!
