Anxiety and Depression Support

In slow motion this early afternoon, will watch something funny to get me going

Hi, feeling super sluggish and a little under the weather today but not so bad that I can’t accomplish at least one thing, so kudos to that. Went from last night feeling like I’m not good at anything ( glad it didn’t post) just because I didn’t cook a turkey neck properly 😂 to this morning of not caring and just becoming the best me I can be. How the hell do you cook a turkey neck?😂😂 Can someone tell me? Sorry if you’re a vegan and offended, just don’t respond. I don’t wanna hear it 🛑, we’re not all vegans and my book says the fowl was made for us to eat. Thankyouverymuch

I usually boil mine in water, salt, pepper and butter while my turkey is cooking. Healthy huh!? Lol. I usually don’t eat them I just use the broth for flavoring in some of my other dishes like homemade dressing or gravy for example. Like a stock or turkey broth. So I’m not sure if this will help. It does make the meat very tender. I cook a turkey with a lot of butter salt pepper poultry seasoning and sage in the oven. Maybe that would work on the neck. You could also try cooking in the crock pot I guess with same seasoning and vegetables. Just never leave it in the turkey while you cook it. My first turkey I forgot to take the bag of giblets (organs and neck) out and everyone in my family got very sick from it. It ruined our after Thanksgiving dinner relaxation time because we were all running to the bathroom! Lol. So don’t feel bad! Lol. You could probably google it if needed to make it another way. Best of luck.

Thanks Hopeful-Tinkerbell! Those sound like some yummy recipes that I will try. What I really had a problem with was cleaning them and removing the “membrane” on top. I had no idea you were supposed to remove that so it tasted terrible and wasn’t qualified to eat, had to throw in the trash. I even slow cooked it. I found out when I googled how to clean it properly, but it was after the fact. I was so upset but I will definitely try again. Oh no, I’m sorry your first turkey didn’t go exactly as planned but hey, at least you iearned. Lol. ❤️☮️

At least you didn’t ruin your whole families Thanksgiving although I understand your pain was just as frustrating to you as mine was to me. I’m glad to say I have since cooked many turkeys. I would not have Know to remove membrane on the neck but I only use the neck for goblet gravy, stock or broth. You’ll now be a turkey neck cooking fool! No offense I mean that in a bad a$$ Good way! Lol. Now you’re making me want to try one to eat. I certainly learned from my mistake. Now you have to do blessing in disguise.

Lol I’m happy that you redeemed your turkey cooking skills *mouth watering for a juicy turkey right now with cranberry sauce* lol. Yes I watched the correct way to prepare the neck so I won’t be frustrated anymore. I actually redeemed my cooking skills last night made stew in my crockpot, invited my friend and her children for dinner and she said “I put my foot in it!” Lol
