oven and proceeded to remove the stuffing. When her serving spoon
hit something, she reached in and pulled out the little bird. With a look
of total shock on her face, my mother exclaimed, "Patricia, you've
cooked a pregnant bird!" At the reality of this horrifying news, my
sister started to cry.
It took the family two hours to convince her that turkeys lay eggs!
