I believe that it was a God thing that the turkey wasn't thawed thoroughly on Tuesday. Turns out that this turkey is taking FOREVER to bake. It's on its way to SEVEN hours of roasting and basting and having its temperature taken. Not even the little pop-up-thingy is budging. Had we attempted to have this for dinner on Christmas day, we'd have had a vegetarian meal. Unless we wanted to eat at 10:00 p.m. Not likely.
