MY TOP TEN: Douglas Lauder, Elk Grove

It’s never too early to start planning for the holidays. With that in mind, Douglas Lauder of Elk Grove offers a list of 10 things you can do with a turkey.

1. Breaking the wishbone.

2. Eating dark turkey meat.

3. Eating white turkey meat.

4. Riding on the turkey like it’s a sled down a hill.

5. Spreading the turkey’s wings and pretending that it is a dancing pterodactyl.

6. Putting the turkey on my head and running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

7. Stuffing a turkey.

8. Stuffing butter into the meat.

9. Stuffing garlic into the meat.

10. Looking at a live turkey and laughing because it’s funny looking.
