I was a newlywed only married a couple of years. My husband came from a large family with almost a dozen grandkids, most of which lived in the local area. when we got married after the 2nd year, we bought our first home. We had the biggest house to seat everyone in 2 rooms so we made the turkey a couple of years by now...
I thought I had everything I need and Thanksgiving morning began preparing what was needed for the turkey. I always made the best juicy turkeys and everyone enjoyed them. Much to my surprise, a much needed item was not in the house. A key ingredient I thought I needed to have the juiciest turkeys. Yep, you guessed it.. the turkey bag. there were none to be found in the house and no time to go to the store to get one. I searched the house high and low for something which could take it's place. Hmm.. they are plastic bags so I thought if I covered the turkey in plastic wrap it would do the job. So when it was time to put the bird in the oven, I grabbed a box of plastic wrap and tightly wrapped the bird in the pan. I was set... or so I thought. When it came to check the bird I noticed the plastic wrap was gone!! Who took it!!! I was terrified my turkey would be dry!! I found out though that the plastic wrap didn't respond like a turkey bag. Instead it shrank and shriveled up into tiny pieces. Boy was I embarrassed. The turkey ended up tasting good, but everyone had to be careful and pick out plastic pieces which I didn't find. This was now over 20 years ago and a memorable Thanksgiving I will never forget. Now my 2 girls are out of the house and I can't wait to see their first family gathering blunder. I'm sure it happens to all of us.... doesn't it????
