Developing holiday cooking skills

Developing holiday cooking skills, originally uploaded by JoannaBG.

Duncan found the turkey baster in the kitchen drawer and asked what it was for. I explained that it was used to suck up the cooking juices from the turkey to squeeze over them and make it tasty and crispy. He then proceeded to try and suck the juices out of each one of us in turn, including the cat. Then he wanted to practice for real so I set the kids up with two bowls and some water which occupied them for quite a while.

The highlight was Duncan’s realization that a turkey baster moving water around looks a lot like a male peeing. Giggles ensued.
