I might have turkey, but I‘m not sure.

 – Jacob Reinke, kindergarten


We eat turkey. Mom cooks the turkey ‘cause I might get hurt ‘cause it’s hot.

– Angelica Fuller, kindergarten


We eat turkey. You kill it first and take all the fur off. Make sure there’s no fur. Then you cook it for 49 minutes and take it out of the oven and put it on a big plate and set it on the table and then people sit at the table and we usually wait for our grandma and grandpa before we eat. When we’re all done, we go outside and play games.

– Kortney Hintz, kindergarten


I would have a turkey, deer meat, potatoes, corn, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and cranberry juice. I would stuff the turkey with bubble gum. I like fried turkey.

– Caden Holt, kindergarten


I would like turkey, corn, cottage cheese, macaroni and milk. Stuff the turkey with bread.

To cook a turkey, you take it out of the wrapper and then you pick out all the guts and then you stuff some bread in and then you cook it and then put it on for 101 for 15 minutes. And then you pick it out of the oven and then you eat it.

– Libby Rorick, kindergarten


We have turkey. It cooks for five hours.

– Jasmine Wagner, kindergarten


I would like turkey, baked corn and apple pie. I would stuff the turkey with candy. I like it baked.

– Tanner Wagner, kindergarten


I want a big turkey with stuffing, cranberry jam, my mom’s homemade strawberry jam, a whole bunch of pies, mashed potatoes, corn pudding like Liz makes, and juice and pop and water.

[How do you cook a turkey?] You would have to ask Riley Williams.

– Walker Whitehouse


We have turkey, corn, potatoes and beef jerky. My grandma and papa cook the turkey. I help put it on the tray to put on the table.

– Kaden Hutchinson, kindergarten


We have turkey, ham, cupcakes, green beans and cookies. You cook the turkey for 13 minutes in the oven.

– Tiana Sharp, kindergarten


I would have turkey and mashed potatoes. I don’t want any stuffing and I like baked turkey.

 – Jaryd White, fourth grade


We eat turkeys. I love turkeys. We also eat chicken, green beans and corn. Daddy makes the turkey. I help put on the sugar, cinnamon and lemon to make it lemon turkey. It takes eight minutes in the oven. We make apple pie after the turkey. You get lots of apples with your tractor and then bake the apple pie.

– Raven Hadsell, kindergarten


We eat turkey and pie. My mom makes the turkey. I put the juice on for my momma and I put the rub on. It cooks 30 seconds in the oven. We eat apple pie, too. I put it in the shell and put whipped cream on it.

– Alex Skelton, kindergarten


We have turkey, pumpkin pie and salad. My daddy cooks the turkey. He helps me put it in the oven for a short time. Mommy makes the salad and I get the bowl out.

– Grace Ryan, kindergarten


Maybe we’ll have some chicken or turkey and maybe green beans. My grandma cooks the turkey.

– Sierra Rowley, kindergarten


We eat turkey, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie. My mom cooks the turkey.

– Carolyn Gould, kindergarten


We have turkey, grapes and oranges. My dad cooks the turkey. He puts it in the oven for two minutes and he salts it. Pumpkin pie is my favorite.

– James Stevens, kindergarten


We’re having turkey and mashed potatoes and gravy. I would like some green bean casserole and maybe some stuffing and definitely some pumpkin pie.

If you’re going out hunting for a turkey and it’s dead, you can pluck the feathers, then chop the head off and do some other stuff that I don’t actually know.

I think you have to cook it about 24 minutes. You have to have the oven about 24°, but I’m not really for sure.
