Third-grade students at Summerland Public School were asked what they would serve for Thanksgiving dinner if they were the host or how they would cook a turkey. Their responses appear, in original form, as submitted to SAM.

This is how I would cook a Turkey! First I will put seasoning on it. Then I’ll stick it on a grill for 1 hour. Take it off. It will smell wonderful. Now I can eat it with my family. It will be great!

I would help mom serve Thanksgiving. I would get the bowls ready and the plates ready. I would cook turkey, corn, green beans, apples sauce, mashed potatoes, cow meat, watermealon, apples, pears, pineapples, oranges, and grapes. For dessert I’d have pumpkin pie, apple pie and cherry pie, and different kinds of pie. Then I would put all of the food on the table. Then I would get my friends and cousins and family. Then we would play games and eat. That would be easy peasy.

Gobble Gobble!

It’s a Lot of work to cook a turkey! You put it in the oven. Then cook it for an hour or two. And then if you want any seawsonings put them on. What my family puts on is what the whole family likes. We all don’t like the same seasonings but when its mixed up together Mmmmm! OH and I almost forgot because its so good! You have to wait about ten to twenty minutes which might seem like a day to cool so you can eat it! Wala. Mmm! Some good turkey you might love!

First I would drive to the pasture. When I get to the pasture I will grab the 20 gauge. I have a turkey permit under my name so I get to shoot the turkey. We would find the turkeys and find a turkey to shoot. Then I will take it home.

After I get home, I pluck the turkey. After I do that I gut the turkey. Then I add some seasoning. After I season it, I get ready to cook. I put the oven at 300 degrees for an hour and a half. Then I open the oven door and poke a fork in the turkey to see if the turkey is ready. If it is ready, the fork will go through it. If it is done I will take it out of the oven.

Last I would cut the turkey up. Then I would serve the turkey on separate plates and give some turkey to everyone. We would have a good feast. We will have a lot of fun.

Next I take the wrapper off. Then I grab a pan. I put pepper on the turkey. Then I put the turkey on the grill. I put it on 100 degrees. I will cook it for 100 minutes. I take it out then I check it. If the pepper is spicy, the turkey is done.

Last I will put the table cloth on the table. I will cook the other food. I then eat the food. Everyone will like it!

First, I get in the pickup and go to the pasture. Then I go to a stand and use a turkey call. The turkeys come out and I put shotgun shells in the shotgun. Then I aim the shotgun and then I pull the trigger.

Next, I go to the field and I drag it to the pickup. I take it home and clean it. I put it on a pan. Then I put it in a stove. I will put the stove at 1,000 degrees. I will put it in the stove for one hour. I will get it out of the stove and check if it is done. If it is juicy, it is done.

Last, I will invite my family. I will wait for people to get there. I will serve it on a plate. We will eat and people will leave.

First, I drive to the pasture. Once I get there I will wait for a turkey. When a turkey comes I will shoot it. Then I’ll take the turkey home. When I get home I’ll pluck the turkey. Once I’m done plucking the turkey I’ll gut the turkey. Then I’ll clean the turkey. I’ll add salt and pepper. Now it’s time to cook the turkey.

I will put the turkey on a cookie pan. Once it’s on the pan I’ll put it in the oven for one hour at 300 degrees. Then I”ll poke a fork in it to make sure it’s done. I’ll put it on the plates. Everybody in my family will get in line to get their food.

When everybody gets to the table we will eat the turkey. When we’re done eating we’ll clean the table. When we are finished cleaning we’ll play a game. After we’re done playing we’ll go to bed.

First, I will go hunting with Brogan. We will find a turkey. We will shoot it with a shotgun. Then we can take it home. When we get home we will give the turkey a bath. Then we will pick the feathers off. Now we need to find a pan. We also need to heat up the oven.

We would turn the oven to 350 degrees. I will put salt and pepper on it and then put the turkey on the pan. Then we will put it in the over for four to five hours.

When the turkey is done we will take it out of the oven. We will cut it up. Then we will grab plates and dig in. It was delicious!

-Ryder Jeffords

First, I would buy what I need to hunt a turkey. I will go to the woods to find him. When I get to my hunting spot I will sit and wait for the turkey. When I see a fat turkey I will shoot him.

Next, I will take my turkey to the truck. I’ll drive to the kitchen. I’ll get the insides out. I will then start cooking. I’ll put the temp to 80 degrees. I’ll put it in for 40 minutes. I’ll check it by seeing if I die when I eat it. Then I’ll probably eat half of it.

Last, I will get a tray. Then I’ll give it to the customers at Brogan’s restaurant. They will think it’s delicious. They will come back next Thanksgiving.
