A mother-of-six from Neath has taken out her frozen Christmas turkey to allow it to defrost.
Full-time mum Glenda Slackflaps has taken the Bernard Matthews Golden Norfolk from the chest freezer in her garage, and has placed it on a plate at room temperature in her kitchen.
She told WalesOnCraic:
“We had big problems last year when I only took it out to defrost on the 1st December. We had it in the bath, under my sunbed and even under my hairdryer. We’re ready for it this year.”
The Slackflaps family had to endure eating turkey drumsticks that mum Glenda had as an emergency supply in her freezer.
“It was awful.” said eldest daughter Tonya. “It was like eating turkey drumsticks for Christmas dinner.”
Glenda still plans to take her frozen sprouts out of the freezer at the annual family ‘Getting-The-Sprouts-Out-The-Freezer’ get-together on December 15th.
