Time to make the donuts

Ha, I wish. 

Actually, it's 7:15 a.m. and it's time to go clean the burnt gunk out of the bottom of the oven so I can cook the turkey.

Last year, I did not clean the burnt gunk out of the bottom of the oven before I cooked the turkey. And I put the turkey in one of those disposable aluminum pans. At some point, the pan was punctured and "turkey juice" started dripping to the bottom of the oven. Long story short, a fire extinguisher was pulled but not used, and the party moved outside to the deck in the freezing rain while the house de-smoked.

My goal for this Thanksgiving feast: no fire extinguishers. Wish me luck!

Happy Thanksgiving, and may you have a smoke-free day.

I'm thinking you just single handedly saved my day.

I have a GINORMOUS turkey to cook in a flimsy aluminum pan.

I think I'll try to find a different pan or put the disposable pan in another pan.
