I would get my turkey from a store and I’ll bring it home. When I get home, I take the stuff out of it. I bake it in the oven. I check it to see if it’s done with a toothpick. When it’s done, I cool it down for a little bit. Then get all the stuff ready to eat. Then get all the food ready and then we eat.

Get the turkey from the store and bring it home. Then when it’s home, you carve it. Then when you’re done carving it, you eat it. My favorite part is the skin with no hair.
