Thanksgiving Disasters!

The first year that I cooked Thanksgiving dinner was a disaster! I had just moved into a new apartment and had not used the oven. I put the turkey into the oven very early in the morning and it would not cook! I ended up cooking that turkey for 12 hours and it was still raw in the middle but I made everyone eat the cooked parts anyway. Thank God that no one got sick. Turns out my oven was broken and could not come up to temperature.

A few years later, I had just purchased a house and I had a slew of friends coming over to celebrate Thanksgiving in our new home. My friends were accustomed to cornbread dressing, which I had never made before. I wasn't sure how much cornbread to make, so I made a lot! I made 6 pans of cornbread! Turns out I didn't need that much! To make matters worse, while I was making the cornbread dressing the top fell off of the pepper container and an entire bottle of pepper fell into the bowl. I removed as much as I could but it was still very peppery!

What Thanksgiving disasters have you experienced?

Once I dropped the jello. On the floor. All over our kitchen! Yuck! Why don't dogs eat jello??

I think my biggest problem was getting the turkey to cook near time, or even getting it thawed on time.
