How do you know when Christmas time is drawing near? When you wake up one morning and find a bird butt in your fridge, of course!!
We will be celebrating Christmas here a little early because Hubs has to work on the actual day, so today I went shopping for Christmas dinner, which will most likely end up being Christmas lunch bleeding over into Christmas dinner. (Would it surprise any of you to know that I purchased five different kinds of cheese today?!?!?) And that is where the bird butt comes in.
The bird was in the fridge to defrost when Bailey went to get some juice this afternoon.
"What's this Mommy?" he asked.
"It's for Christmas dinner. It's a turkey."
"What's turkey?" he asked wrinkling his nose.
"It's a bird, like chicken."
"Grooooosssssss, there is a bird butt in the fridge!!" Bailey said quickly shutting the door.
Now, if only I can figure out the best wake to bake that bird butt. And, not a word if it is dry- it's my first time making turkey.
