Gobble Gobble Y'all
Or as I like to call it --beginning of the eatin' season!
Can you believe it is just a little more than 4 days until Thanksgiving?
What are y'all planning?
We are going to my Mother-in-Law's house (which is typical for us) but this year the "boys" are gonna deep fry a turkey. Have you ever had deep fried turkey? I am not typically a fan of deep-fried foods but it is soooo good! YUM!!
The best part (besides eatin') is I don't have to get up with the chickens--or turkeys, haha-- and cook it. The only thing I need to cook (or buy) this year is a pumpkin pie!
Deep fried turkey is serious business! It can be extremely dangerous. According to the National Fire Protection Association--every year deep-fryer fires are responsible for five deaths, 60 injuries, the destruction of 900 homes, and more than $15-million in property damage!
You want this...
So if you are gonna deep fry a turkey make sure you know what you are doing. SAFETY FIRST!! Because I would hate to find out some of y'all burnt your or your neighbors house down!
This is my FAVORITE video on how to deep fry a turkey--I mean who doesn't love Alton Brown?
Here is a great web tutorial
So if y'all don't want to end up with a Chinese Thanksgiving..
Follow all the safety guidelines for turkey deep frying and you can have your very own Norman Rockwell Turkey Day!
