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

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

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.

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.

– 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.

    A PERFORMER named Biligbaatar, a member of the AnDa Union troupe from Inner Mongolia, dances at Stair District Library last week during a visit to the Midwest. The nine-member group blends a variety of traditions from Inner and Outer Mongolia. The music is described as drawing from “all the Mongol tribes that Genghis Khan unified.” The group considers itself music gatherers whose goal is to preserve traditional sounds of Mongolia. Biligbaatar grew up among traditional herders who live in yurts. Additional photos are on the back page of this week’s Observer.
