I am blessed enough to be married to a man who loves to cook. And he is unfortunate enough to be married to a wife who hates to cook. :)
While I make fresh meals from scratch every evening for our family, it's definitely a chore for me. It's not that I'm a bad cook. My family has always been happy with the meals I prepare. It's just that I'd rather stick pins in my fingers than have to be in the kitchen cooking.
There is one time of the year, though, when my husband relieves me of my kitchen duties and that's Thanksgiving. Every year he makes the entire meal, sans the mashed potatoes (because I happen to make those really well). How lucky am I to have a husband who does the Thanksgiving cooking?!
And we have yet to have a bad turkey (dry, undercooked, etc.). All of our guests always rave over how well he cooks it.
He did make the classic mistake the very first time he cooked a turkey, though. Yes, the dreaded "leaving in the giblets" error. He even knew about that possibility and thought he'd checked well enough, but he didn't know that there were giblets in both ends.
Thankfully it didn't affect the turkey at all. It was just as perfect then as it has been in the years since.
