Recipes for memorable dining: Joann Caputo asked her second-graders at Spokane's St. Charles School to write down instructions for preparing a turkey dinner.

For that, we give thanks.

"1. Buy a turkey. 2. Put garlic on it. 3. Make it crispy. 4. Put salt on it. 5. Put turkey juice on it. 6. Add pepper. 7. And eat it!" -- Hannah

"1. Get the turkey. 2. Get teriyaki sauce. 3. Stuffing. 4. Frutsalad. 5. Salad. 6. Jallo. 7. Peas." -- Taylor

"Get the heart out of the turkey. Get the guts out. Sprinkle some pepper. Put the turkey in the oven." -- Sam

"1. Put turkey in oven. 2. Turn oven to about 200 degrees. 3. Cook for about 15 minutes. 4. Take out and eat." -- James

We wish we could share every one of the kids' papers because they're all good. But here are a few highlights from the rest of the class.

"Clean guts," "Take out the guts and bones," "Bake it 4 degrees," "Take the chicken bone out," "Put it in the microwave," "Take out the fat," "Put it under a stove," and "Poot grease in the turkey."

A little girl named Alyssa even offered a serving suggestion: "Put it on a lovely dish."
