What's the worst Thanksgiving meal or dish you've had? Could be something you prepared, or were served at someone else's home. A few years ago I had dinner with some friends. The gal and her boyfriend were pretty novice cooks and were in charge of the meal. They decided to use an oven bag to cook the turkey and probably left that thing in the oven a good hour longer than was needed. By the time they pulled the turkey out, the breast meat had split open and was starting to turn to jerky. Thank goodness there were a lot of appetizers and side dishes.
