Today, I was in charge of Thanksgiving dinner. I dressed and stuffed the turkey, popped it in the oven and sent a mass text out to my family about how amazing it would be. Everyone arrived, we began making plates of food when I checked the turkey, and realized I never even turned on the oven. FML

You didn't check the turkey or notice you couldn't smell it cooking?

More time to bond with family! Four more hours of it or so..

Chin up, it is not that uncommon a mistake. Hope everyone understood, and yes you will hear about it every year from here on out.

You're family is going to give up overrated holidays ... cold turkey.

You basically liked your own comment. Great puns are great. Yours... not so much. :)

Why would you want things to heat up with your family? This is thanksgiving dinner, not a porn video. (and no, you aren't)

You're really good at making bad plays-on-words.

I feel for you, this easily sounds like something I would do. I hope everything turned out alright and everyone was understanding.

Pizza delivery is your friend. Couple pies, some garlic knots and wine.... That's-a Thanksgiving!

I asked my husband to check it periodically for me; since I had a whole bunch of other dishes to make and prep-- he told me he'd been checking it and it was doing sooooo good. Turns out he's lazy.

Well I guess that's the last time you trust him with checking on your cooking.

At least you still spent thanksgiving with your family! I hope they understood and there was other delicious food ready. :)

It's okay, one year my sister forgot to even thaw out our turkey. We went to IHOP for dinner that year. :)

That seems to be an easier mistake to make than not noticing the oven's off with a raw turkey inside until it's time to eat, since turkeys take much longer to thaw than people would think: 1 day per 4 pounds inside the refrigerator.

Fair point. And she did learn something from the experience. We still joke about it almost every year, and she laughs along because she knows she was a dork.
