Funny family story about a ruined turkey.
Don’t Burn It
A favorite holiday story that I have heard a friend tell happened at Thanksgiving, while it may have happened at Christmastime. Every spring Linda’s uncle, who was thought of as rich, purchased a box of turkey babies. He split the chicks with Linda’s father and whoever brought up the largest turkey supplied the Thanksgiving feast, the following biggest was Christmas dinner. One year Linda’s family brought up the biggest turkey. He weighed forty-two pounds and was so big they feared he wouldn’t go in the oven. The family tradition was to spend each Thanksgiving Day with either Uncle Joe or Auntie Margaret and their families.
They lived roughly an equal distance from our home and both places were rather boring to youngsters. The sole bright spot in going to see either one was that they got to stop and have burgers for breakfast on the way. The year of the behemoth turkey was Aunt Margaret’s home. She was an atrocious cook and her Dad worried about his turkey until her mother said she would fix it at home and Margaret could simply heat it up. The day worked out to be better than they guessed, Aunt Margaret’s 3 grandsons were there and they were all having a fantastic time.
An hour before dinner Linda’s mother helped Auntie Margaret get the gigantic turkey into her oven and left her to warm it up. In approximately 15 minutes somebody noticed smoke descending from the kitchen. Everyone rushed in and Linda’s Mom yanked the oven door open. The beautiful turkey was on fire. Aunt Margaret had switched on the broiler, not the oven; thereby satisfying her fathers prediction that she would wreck the turkey. Thank goodness, he was able to save the day by ingenious slicing and they had a Thanksgiving to remember.

Stone Soup-Veggie Soup
A story of curiosity and sharing.
Soup of Stones?
Some travelers come to a small town, carrying nothing more than an empty-bellied pot. Upon their reaching the town, the villagers are unwilling to portion out any of their food stashes with the hungry travelers. The travelers fill up the pot with water, drop a big rock in it, and position it over a fire in the village square. One of the villagers gets to be curious and asks what they’re doing. The travelers reply that they’re making “stone soup”, which tastes fantastic, although it all the same needs a little bit of garnish to better the flavor, which they’re missing. The villager does not mind giving up just a little bit of flour to help them out, so it gets added to the soup. A different villager walks by, asking about the pot, and the travelers again remark their stone soup which has not reached its full potential so far. The villager hands them a little bit of flavoring to help them out. More and more villagers walk by, each bestowing another ingredient. At long last, a delicious and nourishing pot of soup is savored by all.
