By the time I was 16 I had become a fairly accomplished cook. So come the Holidays and Birthdays I would be in the kitchen with the family of women as was our tradition. And when you have a kitchen full of women preparing a large holiday meal, little accidents can happen. You can get in each others way and create the "Kitchen dance"! One or the other of us constantly reaching over and around one anothr for this or that ingredient or utensile. And the hand washing is so much so that each of us had an extra dish towel tucked in the waist band of our aprons to dry our hands on. Well my mother is cleaning up the turkey getting it ready to be stuffed. Now she gets the bowl of raw stuffing she has prepared and proceeds to stuff the turkey. When finished she has stuffing all over her hands and can't turn the water on to wash her hands. So she is standing there with her arms bent up like a surgeon ready to enter the opertating room and, pleading for any one to turn the water on for her. So now she has washed her hands and reaches for her dish towel to dry them. Well it isn't there! Where is it? She is looking all over the kitchen for it! And of coursr we all have to get involved looking for it! None of us find it. Until..... We are getting the food on the table and of course the turkey is center stage! So now Mom is scooping out the stuffing and puttng it in a serving bowl.....when she says," Oh my Lord!" And with all eyes on her, she pulls the dish towel out of the turkey! She had inadvertantly left it in the turkey when she was patting the turkey dry! We all died laughing! She has since passed away but, that is one of my favorite memories of her! To this day we recall this memory when we gather togther.

I am surprised there was any room left over for the stuffing!  Too funny.

Great story but I'll bet Mom wasn't laughing too much at the time.  I think we've all had our mishaps while cooking, just some are remembered more than others lol.

Too funny after all these yeas.  Sounds like my grandmother - after washing the turkey/chicken, she left the paper towels inside it.  Only way she knew is when she put it in the pan, the back end still had the paper towel & she instantly knew there was more inside because she put the paper towels inside & outside.  She had to unstuff, remove the paper towel, re-stuff & cook.  She's done this several times with chicken or turkey.  Grandpa said one time he got the end of the stuffing with the paper towel & was surprised it didn't burn but because of the stuffing, it stayed moist
