one of your assistants won’t carve it for you, try this:
carving, lift turkey up by its wings and dance him (or her) around the
table! This will entertain your guests before they fall into a
stupor (caused by the secret chemical in turkey that renders people

don’t - use your handy dandy Mirtha Stuwort carving knife, (available in
all fine department stores!), to gently sever the wing from its body. Do

off succulent pieces of turkey breast meat. Do the same with the
juicy moist dark meat and arrange on your imitation antique platter.
putting your raked-up leaves in your composter, lay a layer of them on
your tablecloth. Hollow out a small portion of a mini-pumpkin and
insert a candle. Use your Mirtha Stuwort dinnerware set and your
table is complete.
what is one of the things that people usually do on Thanksgiving –

TV! But how about having one of your own? It will keep the
little darlings amused for hours. You can hollow out vegetables and
gourds to make the floats and use children's action figures and dolls for
the crowds. The kidlets will have fun and you can cook the floats
afterward. Very practical! Try Auntie's Cranberry
Robin's famous "Turkey
in a Bag".
As you fall into your Thanksgiving stupor, remember to watch my Christmas
special, "Rudolph and Frosty Meet Mirtha". It’s never
too early to start thinking about the next big holiday. I know I
your guests begin to revive a couple of hours after dinner -
