Talking Dictionary548. Happy Thanksgiving!


548. Once a year, on Thanksgiving, Barry did the cooking and cleaning. He bought a 10‐pound turkey. He preheated the oven to 325 degrees. He stuck a meat thermometer into one of the turkey's thighs. The meat had to be at least 160 degrees. He put the bird into the oven. While it was cooking, Barry prepared the other items for Thanksgiving dinner. Dinner included green beans, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, and cranberry sauce. He set the table. When everything was ready, he called his wife and son to dinner. When they finished eating, Barry brought out the dessert. After dessert, Barry's wife said, "Well, let's remember what we're thankful for today. I'm thankful I have such a wonderful husband and son." Barry said, "I'm thankful Thanksgiving is only once a year." Their son said, "I'm thankful you bought apple pie and vanilla ice cream for dessert. Can I have some more?" 5.5
