The holiday meal preparation – in our household – is left to my mom, who is much more efficient and talented than I will ever be in the kitchen.
… except for the fact that she purchased a deformed turkey.
This is an A-list turkey. Totally ready to party...
Mom bought a utility turkey. She said she’s done it before, and only a “little bit was missing.”
Well, a little more than a few “bits” were missing from our holiday feast. As mom pulled the turkey out of the bag, we noticed right away that both legs were missing. Upon closer inspection, so were both arms. As we tried to suppress giggles of horror, mom and I realized at the same time that we were staring at nothing more than a torso.
Did we ever buy a utility turkey again? Hell no. Did I eat turkey that Thanksgiving? Absolutely not. It made a great story over the dinner table, but at the time I was horrified. Who would sell something like that? And where did the limbs go??
