night before Thanksgiving and the turkey is still frozen!!!!

Njchicaa | Nov 21, 2012 05:14 PM

I swear this isn't my fault. I bought it on Saturday and my husband's job was to put it in one of the mini-fridges in his basement bar to thaw. He left the store plastic bag around the plastic-covered turkey and I guess maybe those fridges are turned way down because it was still totally frozen 4 days later.

My husband hangs out there each night after I go to bed so I consider this all his fault for not checking on the bird. It has been sitting out on the counter for the past 2 hours and we seem to be making some progress.

Any ideas for how to thaw the rest of it out? I'll be going to bed soon. Leave it out overnight? Leave it in the fridge? Put it in a warm bath tomorrow? I NEVER thought I'd be in the situation as I thought I had a turkey thawing for 4 days at this point!
