The water method does work...

16.63 pound turkey went into the oven at 8am this morning.

Spent most of the night soaking turkey in cold water, switching the water every 30 (or 45) minutes. When I started the process at 11:30 last night, zee turkey, it was still frozen solid. K would not have been happy.

By 7:30am, it was thawed enough to K's satisfaction. Huzzah!

Quick breakfast of pb&j sandwich with my sisters (more bonding?) and then G was off to run her errands and K & I braved the crowds at Safeway. We lucked out, it was fairly empty that early in the morning.

Now, off to the chapel and then to Chinatown. Have to pick up duck and char siu bow for tomorrow & dim sum for today's lunch.
