Some year end thoughts… 🙄
Classmates it has been another fun year. We visited many
new/old locations over the last 11 years and am happy to say
WE HAD A TIGER GOOD TIME! 🙂
2020 over 60 years ago we left Cocoa High and started out to
see the world. Wow! What an adventure it has been.
Reflecting… not many things left on my BUCKET LIST but
sharing time with Classmates & Friends will always be there.
Take good care of yourselves and SEE YA NEXT YEAR.
GO 🐯 TIGERS!

Hot dogs  –   It’s a common misconception that
   they are pre-cooked and they can be eaten raw.
       NO according to FDA,  packaged hot dogs can
         be contaminated with the bacteria  Listeria,
    which can only be killed by reheating the dogs.
Ugh!  Ole Indian Lucky?   Am still alive.

What?   😲   Don’t STUFF the Turkey. 

Stuffing cooked inside a turkey can make you sick.
All the juices drip into and are absorbed by bread.
                        That’s why It tastes sooooo Good! 
Unless stuffing is cooked to internal temp of
165 degrees Fahrenheit (not just the turkey meat)
  eating it can land you in the emergency room. 
      You can cook them separately and then stuff
    the turkey just before presenting it to the table.
 
AMAZING!   My mom STUFFED the turkey for 
      ALL our family dinners and WE SURVIVED!
 
The KEY  is cooking turkey and DRESSING to a
temp of 154 deg F. Mom knew how to cook. 😋
                                      
 
P.S.     She always removed  ALL of the STUFFING  from
   the Turkey and placed it in a separate dish for serving,
                               What did your Mom do?
