Kids share their own turkey recipes

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

It has become a tradition at the Mountain Home News every Thanksgiving to ask second- and third-grade students in local schools to write stories about how to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner.

The recipes on "How to Cook a Turkey" are provided below, for our readers' enjoyment, just as they were turned in to us -- complete with the students' current expertise in spelling and grammar. It's not recommended that anyone actually follow these recipes, but they give a clue as to how children perceive the work that goes into the nation's celebration of family and thanksgiving. Last names have been withheld due to privacy reasons (and just in case something might be a trifle bit embarrassing).

Because of the overwhelming response we have from the schools and the students, we are selected only one school a year. This year, the Base Primary School was selected.
