How to Cook a Turkey according to First Graders...

Katherine brought a recipe book from school yesterday full of recipes on how to cook a turkey.
Her teacher had asked each child if they knew how to cook a turkey and then she put all the recipes together in a book for parents to have and use if we didn't know how to cook a turkey.

I wanted to share some of them with you. They are so cute and so adorable!!!!

Each entry is different child, I don't want to put their names here.

Here we go.

This one is done by Katherine our daughter.

"Hmmm, I don't know but mommy knows. Get the turkey at Wal-Mart. Take the bag off. Put your hands in it and take something off. Put it in the oven for a little bit. Eat it regular." - Yup! That's my girl!!! LOL:)

Here are some others... they are so funny and so cute!!! I will be putting this book in her school album for sure. So cute!!! :)

"Buy the turkey at a store in Kapolei. It is in a refrigerator that is full of turkeys. Get a string and take stuff out of the neck. Cook it in the oven and then you can eat it."

"Get the turkey at the store. Eat it with a fork."

"I'll go ask my mom. You can buy it at a store. Take off the feathers and cook it in the oven on high. Take it out and that's it."

"Buy a frozen turkey. Put in in the microwave and make it hot. Go wherever you are going to go and take it with you. Put in on the turkey plate and eat it with a fork. Oh yeah, put a foil on it."

"Get it at a turkey farm. Cook in in the oven. Take it out, and eat it with your fork, and spoon, and knife."

"Get it at Foodland. Cook it in the oven at 100* for a long time. Take it out and cut it into little pieces. Eat it with a fork, rice, and gravy."

"Get it at Foodland. Boil it at 92* for 1 hour. Then you fry it. Then you eat it with asparagus and chili."

"Buy it at Foodland. Put pancake syrup, ice cream, shave ice, watermelon, strawberries, chicken, corn, lettuce, squash, pineapple, apples, and eggs on it."

"Get it at a farm. Cook it alive. Burn it until the skin is hard. Eat it with a fork spoon, and rice."

"Get the turkey at Foodland. Cook it in your oven for 6 hours at 80*. Take it out, cut it, and eat it with forks."

"Get it at Safeway. Cook it in the oven at 200* for 70 minutes. Take it out and see how hot it is and eat it."

"Get the turkey at the grocery store. Cook it in the chicken oven at 99* for 2 minutes. Take it out and there's a chicken! Cut it and eat it with fork."

"Buy it at Star Market. Cook it in your house, in the kitchen, in the stove at 100* for 10 to 5 minutes. Eat it with a fork, corn, and rice."

  1. These are so cute. I would do this when I was a classroom teacher and would read them to my family on Thanksgiving. We always had a good laugh.

  2. I should do that when we have family for Christmas. :) I know it's not going to be T-day but still it'll be funny!!! :)
