So Wait… We’re NOT Supposed to Wash the Turkey?

That’s right, food safety experts say wash all the vegetables but don’t wash the turkey! Why? The experts say it’s because of the possibility of spreading germs.

Cooking the turkey should kill any germs and bacteria that might be present.

Other food safety tips for the turkey include using a thermometer to make sure the bird is fully done. Also, the turkey isn’t meant to be left out for hours after dinner. Experts say to refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.  (Source:

I'm still trying to figure it out too! I'm a child of God that has a lot to say. I've been given a platform on the air to say it but I tend to be a bit lengthy so enter my website. The "confessions" you see on my website are not the gossip kind but rather conversations with artists, authors, speakers and teachers within the faith-based community. Also, my journey has been colorful, rich and sometimes really hard so, I look for answers and respite through writing. My mom wanted me to write a book  and I'm working on that, so bear with me as I fumble my way through. I'm working on balancing my extremely fun work life with my personal life that is filled with challenges these days. I know that God will see me to victory so... welcome to my life. ~Randi
