Thanksgving Greetings from the Garms

November 25th, 2009 - 6:07 p.m.

Hello Everyone!

We are too cheap to buy stamps, so here is our Thanksgiving greeting to
all of you!

The pumpkin pies are cooling, the green salad (no, not a lettuce salad;
just bunches of Cool Whip, cottage cheese, lime Jell-O, and fruit!) was
successfully made by Jayme and Caleb, Leesha is making the stuffing,
and I have survived making the cranberry sauce.

The house is clean...pretty much, anyway! The Christmas music has been
playing early and we are enjoying each other's company as we prepare
for a day of thanks and relaxation. And yes, we are thankful.

We asked the Lil' Adventurers to share their advice on cooking our
Thanksgiving turkey and below is what they said. We thought we might
share their cooking tips to you, as you might enjoy their helpful

"How To Cook a Turkey"
(according to Sam (9), Jayme (7), and Caleb (6) Garms)

Sam's Procedure: First rip apart the turkey and get the bones out and
yucky stuff out (like the heart and liver). Then you put pepper on it.
Put the turkey in a pan, and cook it by slow roaster or oven. Cook the
turkey at 55 degrees for five hours, making sure the heat is on, the
pepper is on, and ALL the [yucky] stuff is out. Take the turkey out and
chop it up and keep it warm. Serve it with a skewer or pincher [tongs].
Maybe ketchup will go well with the turkey.

Jayme's Procedure: First, put the turkey in a pot, keep it roasting
really hot, about 200 degrees (really hot); turning it when it is done
on one side; 9 minutes for each turn, 2 turns per side. When it is ALL
done, cut it up, serve and eat! Add salt and pepper, and then COVER it
all with KETCHUP!

Caleb's Procedure: I can't answer this! Gnaw it [thaw it], put it in
water, and bake it in an oven at 8 degrees for 13 minutes. When it is
done, add stuff, like pepper, salt; do recipe, with sugar, though. Cut
it up, and put it on a plate to serve it.

From our home to yours..."HAPPY THANKSGIVING!" We are thankful for
all of you and appreciate your friendship and prayers. May this
Thanksgiving be the most precious, the most memorable, the most
filling, and the most blessed!

We give all thanks and praise to the one deserving it, our Lord and
Savior, Jesus Christ!

Blessings and Joy in the Journey,
Taylor for Garms Family

Awww, loved the turkey cooking perspectives. :-) Too cute! "8 degrees for 13 minutes." Must be a small turkey! *grin*
Happy (late) Thanksgiving!
