A haiku written by Lee Sonogan
Although I am small, ugly and dirty, I am highly ambitious, and at the slightest flattery, I immediately start to strut like a turkey. – Italo Calvino
Capon dust bunny,
Like shit through a wild-goose chase,
Crutch as a funny.
Basting is evil. Basting does nothing for the meat. Why? Skin. Skin is designed to keep stuff out of the bird, so basting just lets heat out of the oven. That means the turkey will take longer to cook… so don’t touch that door! – Alton Brown
