Turkey Fryers

Have you ever heard of Turkey Fryers?

I hadn't heard of them until recently. It was a quiet Saturday. I think we spent most of the day doing chores; me - cleaning, Mike - woodworking. We are BORING! Anyway, that evening we went over to his Aunt Becky's house.

Mike's Aunt Becky is a great lady. She has never met a stranger. She is absolutely pint-sized. I think my feet were bigger than her's when I was in third grade. She has a laugh that will just make you chuckle. I really like spending time with her. She has three kids, Michelle, Von, & Raylene. Raylene lives out of town & has four kids to keep her busy so I don't see her often. Michelle & Von also live out of town but they make it home for visits more frequently. They are so fun - we laugh like crazies when we are all together.

So when we headed over to Becky's, I was anticipating a good time. I had no idea what was waiting for us.

Michelle went grocery shopping on her way to town. This is what she bought:

These are Turkey Fryers.
Know what they are yet?

I don't know how to make these pics rotate. Just pic up your monitor & turn it, ok?
Here is Von frying the Turkey Fryers.
Now do you know what they are?
Here is Michelle digging in!
I think this is the bite that 'popped' in her mouth.

Mike wasn't too sure if he liked them or not.
The scrunched up nose & pursed lips are clear signs that he is
not sure if he's liking the Turkey Fryers.
I had to close my eyes so that I could concentrate on the complex flavor, the intriguing texture of the Turkey Fryer.
I had to chase it with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie & lots of Diet 7Up.

Anybody want to guess what a Turkey Fryer is?
Leave me a comment & tell me if you know!

Are they the same thing as rocky mountain oysters?

LOL!!! I can't believe you ate them!!! Yes, Rocky Mountain Oysters would be the name if they were from a bovine. YUCK!!!
