Last year, when I stuffed the turkey, I put a small Cornish game hen in with the stuffing.
When it came time for the turkey to come out of the oven, I asked my daughter (a 21-year-old) to spoon the stuffing out into a bowl. I thought my husband and I would die laughing (along with my mother and brother-in-law) as my daughter started crying out, "We killed a baby turkey." She did not catch on until we told her, and then she thought we were just saying it to make her feel better. The look on her face when we convinced her that turkeys lay eggs was priceless.
