Breasts, Sacks, and Stuffing on Christmas Day

For your reading pleasure, I offer the instructions for the “Disposable Stuffing Temperature Sensor” that my mother whipped out (ha!) and read out loud on Christmas day. If you don’t laugh, then count yourself lucky, because your mind is most likely far cleaner than mine.

Remove turkey from oven. Insert black sensing tip into breast cavity stuffing sack and wait 10 seconds. Remove sensor, check color of tip. Stuffing is done when sensor tip turns bright orange. If tip is not bright orange, return stuffed turkey to oven for 10-15 minutes. Use same sensor tip to check again. Do not leave tip in turkey while cooking.

I almost peed on the kitchen floor. That would have been awkward.

What I’m watching right this second: Enchanted. LOVE.



  1. “Do not leave tip in…” Words to live by.

  2. You had me at “basting.”

  3. Er… that’s what she said? *runs, hides*

  4. This is my very favorite line:

    “Insert black sensing tip into breast cavity stuffing sack”

    There are so many funny things about it that I can’t possibly pick one.


  5. Wow. I just have to say that if the tip turns orange, the bird’s got stuffing in the oven.
