My husband and I were planning on having a turkey for dinner. Since there are only 2 of us I invited an elderly gentleman from our church over for dinner. I never cooked a turkey before. I could not get the turkey into the cooking bag so I laid the bag on top and baked it. When my husband came home from work - he went to check on the turkey and turned to me and said "Are you really this stupid or do you just do this to irritate me?" I replied "I am really that stupid." I had placed a stuffing bag on top of the turkey - not a turkey cooking bag. After dinner I asked my guest if the turkey was cooked well. He said that it tasted great to him!

Next time let your husband cook the turkey since he thinks he knows so much.

I am sorry your husband has no manners and agree with Marilyn V., let your husband cook the turkey next time. I just have one other comment, stupid people are people who never try to improve themselves, never try to learn. Any person who tries new things is learning, you are not a stupid person so don't ever say you are.

My mother made a pie once using a store bought pie crust to bake. She did not realize it had two crusts with a paper in the middle. She used both and her and dad it was nice and chewy. The both laughed. As for your husband, next year he can have a turkey tv dinner.

That was a very horrible thing for your husband to say to you! They do make what is called a "Turkey Size" in the cooking Bags. If you every have any questions about cooking join the "Message Board" on this site, there are some very very experienced bakers and we are all very happy to offer help and advice. I'm sure the next time you make a Turkey you will do just fine.

I am sorry, but your husband is a jerk! Tell him to cook himself from now on. And then you just sit back and wait, he will do something not quit right. You can just be gracious and smile, all the while saying to your self, "he isn't so smart himself". Keep on trying, you will be a good baker, cook, whatever you set your mind to. Just takes time and lots of practice.

Do yourself a favor and keep your rude husband out of the kitchen. There's plenty of resources, message boards, etc. out there to help out when you have questions. All you have to do is ask. Don't ever call yourself stupid. There's a first time for everything and remember, practice makes perfect! Good luck to you!
