I made a turkey, last night. But, since I'm working full-time AND tutoring AND teaching piano AND trying to stay commited to my workouts, things are a bit hectic.

So, I read online that you could cook a turkey from it's frozen state. I had purchased a fresh one, Mondyay night, so I took out the neck, etc, put a cut up lemon in the empty part, then put it in it's pan, covered it with aluminum foil, and put it in the freezer.

Tuesday morning, I put it in the oven, set the oven to start at 1:00 pm at 325 degrees, and hoped for the best.

When I arrived at home at 6pm, the turkey was pretty near done. I set the temperature up to 350, removed the foil, and basted it.

Thirty minutes later, this is what I had:

So, it DOES work. Of course, it takes more time than a thawed turkey. But, if you're a working woman who's juggling a million things - you CAN have your turkey and eat it too!

Now, to finish re-finishing the kitchen cabinets...


  1. Looks yummy and perfect!!!

  2. Who's gonna eat all that??? Or are you going to now freeze the cooked turkey?

  3. I'm going to eat all of it. Every bit. Turkey mash, turkey soup, turkey gumbo, turkey pie, turkey pancackes, turkey with rice...

  4. WAHOO! I have never, yet, made my own turkey :)

  5. That's awesome!

    I had just enough leftovers for turkey wild rice soup. Oh! And turkey sandwiches. :-D
