argh. WTF? I bought it and put it in the fridge on Saturday. The **** thing is still frozen. The outside is a little squishy (aka - thawed) but you can definitely feel that it's still frozen.

Can I put it in a sink of water overnight?

Frick. This happens every year.

stop up your kitchen sink, fill it with cool (not cold) water, and put the turkey in it (it needs to be fully submerged). you'll need to keep an eye on it while it's in there. and, you'll need to change the water periodically.

Witchy, I think that's what I'll do.

I'm pretty sure it won't fit in the microwave...

why do you put cats in the clothes dryer - do they need the exercise?

this is why I bought mine, a fresh one, yesterday, so I don't have to deal with it that part of it.

because I hate dealing with the bird. Ugh.

I did that yesterday too. And usually I reserve one in advance, but this year I forgot. I got the last small bird just in time!

We'd always put the turkey in the tub in cool water when I was a kid -- change the water every few hours.... it'll thaw out fine by the time to start cooking.

If it's still a little frozen, it is safe to roast a frozen turkey (unstuffed) -- it just takes longer - and remember to take out the giblets when it's thawed enough

our market had a lot of 12-13lbs birds, but i ended up buying a 17lb one. Which is dumb, but I remembered feeling like there weren't enough leftovers when I made a 13lber before.

But, it does mean that much more bird to deal with.

wyrillco...if it were up to me, we'd go out for Chinese.

Ours is still slightly frozen in the middle also.

19 pound bird for 2 adults and 2 kids. There WILL be leftovers tomorrow.

I need to get the bird ready tonight and get it loaded in the stove right before my race tomorrow am so Mrs. Boiler can turn it on when she gets up.

Mrs Boiler has been cooking today and since it is a 19 pound turkey she is afraid she can't lift that into the stove. My wanting to race tomorrow messes her up some. Oh well.
