Daddy and I wake up early to go hunting, And in just a few minutes I kill the best Thanksgiving turkey we’ve ever had. Now on back home to cook for the family. First, we pluck the feathers and skin it. We then cover the turkey in bacon and ketchup. Then we cook the turkey for 25 minutes in a 25 degree oven. When the turkey is done we all sit around the table, we say grace, then start eating dinner. When dinner is over, we clean up by throwing plates and silverware away. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays; lots of food and lots of family.
