Today is our Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S.
It is celebrated on the 4th Thursday of November.
Generally people (still mainly the womenfolk), cook a turkey.
I will be doing just that.
When I was in Chile, someone asked me why cooking a turkey was always a problem (as is often shown in American TV and movies).
As I explained, it's because it is a rather large fowl (from around 8 to 20 lbs), and, as we normally only cook it once a year, one always forgets how it's done. There is always the problem of undercooking, or overcooking.
One U.S. company (Butterball, I believe) has a toll free number, staffed with persons, on Thanksgiving Day, able to answer questions about cooking a turkey.
