I know, I know...I've been neglecting my blog. I'm in a funk. Part of it is Jake being gone but I have come to realize I could adapt to him being gone for something good, like going away to college. I'd miss him, yes, but I would be fine with it. It's him being gone and doing something I don't approve of that is just wearing me out. And that? Caused me to apologize to Miss Arse this morning for everything I put her through at his age. She? Was her ever-gracious self and said it was about damn time I apologized. I love her. I hope I'm just like her if I make it to 81. I'm working on it...I went to Walmart today and got four of their 40-cent-a-pound turkeys at just shy of 15 pounds each. This required two trips through the checkouts since they are limit two. I figured two for my freezer and two for hers, one of which would be Thanksgiving dinner. I think I am all devious, slipping into her utility room to put them in her freezer to surprise her...I open her freezer and there? Are two turkeys. I go get her, cracking up, and find out she's done *exactly the same thing at a different Walmart and that I, too, already have two turkeys in my freezer. So, we now have close to 120 pounds of turkey between us. That's just ridiculous so we're going to find a four people or families in the neighborhood who could use a little help and surprise them with a turkey and some basic trimmings. We figure we'll drop everything on doorsteps around 5am the Monday before and run. What fun...I've always wanted to do this! But can someone help me and my bacteria-fearing ways? Will a frozen turkey be okay at outside air temp (60-ish) for 2-3 hours? I don't want them to be really thawed in case people want to put them back in a freezer and save them for Christmas. Any thoughts or ideas?
