Kindergarteners offer turkey tips


Shelly Fischer’s kindergarten students at Hills-Beaver Creek Elementary offer last-minute cooking tips for families preparing a Thanksgiving turkey dinner.


My mom goes to the store in Luverne (the one she always goes to) and buys a turkey. She cooks it by herself while I play with my sister Elizabeth. My mom calls us to dinner and we eat.

We shoot a turkey from the forest. We bake it on the middle of the stove for one minute. Set the timer to know when it is done. Let it cool off before we eat it up.

Go to the food store and buy a huge turkey. Cut it and put salt, pepper and barbeque sauce on it, stuff it with corn and then I am going to roast it on a fire. Cook it for 100 minutes. It is done when it starts to turn black. Put corn, mashed potatoes and spinach around it, add more salt and pepper and put whipped cream and a cherry on top.

We find the biggest turkey from outside the house and catch it with our hands. Take off the feathers and put it on the stove for 25 minutes at five degrees. Put corn in the pot with the turkey. You know it is done when smoke comes out. Then you cut it up and eat it for Thanksgiving.
