Rockpile – 11-21-2012

We’ll have a full week off from our bowling schedule as we’ll break for deer hunting and the Thanksgiving holiday.

I’ll mention a few nice converted splits picked up this past week. Carlla Lingerfelt and Alice Tuttle each picked up the tricky 5-10 and 5-7, respectively. Jennifer Kyle converted the 3-7 split. Jennifer Hall made the 6-7 and Rita Anderson tipped over the 5-10 split Good show, ladies!!

Congratulations to our Glenwood City Hilltopper Football Team for winning the Division 7 championship this past Thursday at Camp Randall.  You guys did a great job and put Glenwood City on the map!!

On our buck board, Dean Berends is leading the pack with a nice 10 point buck with a  17″ outside spread. Brent Standaert is in second place with an eight point 17 5/8 outside spread.

Spencer Peterson bagged an enormous 10 point buck with a 22.5″ spread. Spencer wasn’t on the buck board, however. This was the 13-year-old boy’s first buck!! Congrats!! Spencer is the son of Shane and Sherri Peterson. They also are the parents of Kyle Peterson, who is a member of the Hilltopper Championship Football Team!! Good week, Mom and Dad!!

Birdie with a yellow bill, hopped upon my window sill, cocked a shining eye and says: “Hey Mom!! What are going you going to do after you bake the turkey…neck??” Bee Boop!!

Thanksgiving Recipe

Just because Thanksgiving is coming up, I thought you would enjoy this original recipe!!!


I thought this sounded good! Here is a turkey recipe that also includes the use of popcorn as a stuffing ingredient – imagine that. When I found this recipe, I thought it was perfect for people like me, who are just not sure how to tell when a turkey is thoroughly cooked, but not dried out. Give this a try.

8 – 15 lb. turkey

1 cup melted butter

1 cup stuffing (Pepperidge Farm is good)

1 cup un-popped popcorn (Orville Redenbacher’s Low Fat is the best)

Salt/Pepper to tasted.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush turkey well with melted butter, salt, and pepper.

Fill cavity with stuffing and popcorn. Place in baking pan, making sure the neck end is toward the front of the oven, not the back.

After about 4 hours, listen for the popping sounds.

When the turkey’s a** blows the oven door open and the bird flies across the room…it’s done.
