Merriwether students offer turkey advice
As Thanksgiving approached, kindergarten students at Merriwether Elementary School offered some ideas.
Get a turkey in the woods. Make his sound and he will come to you. Now you shoot him and get the stuff you don’t eat off him. Put barbecue sauce on him. Now cook him on the stove for two hours. Get him out and eat him. — Michael
Go in the woods. Put pine straw on you so you smell like the woods. Look for the turkey and shoot him. Take him home and cut off all the feathers. Cut up the turkey. Put him in the freezer. When it’s time to cook him, take him out and put him in the oven for one hour. Take the turkey out and put him on the table. Cut it up so everybody has a piece. Usually there is some leftovers. — Wyatt
You will need to go to the grocery store to buy a turkey. It will be on the chicken aisle. It will cost about $28. Take it home and put it on the oven to cook it. I think Ma puts it on the tray and in the bottom of it. Cook it for one minute. It will be done when you set the table. Put some salt on it to make it taste good. Eat some corn or beans or chicken on the bone with it. — Heath
Get a turkey at the Flea Market. They have good deals there. They come in silver bags and cost $8. When you get home, put the turkey in a pan. Put cut up carrots all around it. Sprinkle a box of salt on the turkey. Set the oven on 50 degrees and cook the turkey overnight. When it looks brown it is done. — Shakayla
Get a turkey from the turkey store in Edgefield. They are already dead and are in white bags. The turkey will cost $82. Put the turkey in a pot. Put 2 teaspoons of salt in the turkey. Chop up all the spicy peppers you have and put on the turkey. Set the oven on 82 degrees and cook it for 20 minutes. Set the timer so you will know when it is done. Make carrots to go with the turkey. — Kaleb
