Because She Won't Believe Me....
I am one of those people who won't thaw their frozen food on the counter. Some people do (*cough* Amy *cough*) and are just fine with it. In fact, some people (*cough* Amy *cough*) will poke fun at you and say things like, "I'll even make you dinner and I won't thaw the chicken on the counter."
I can't help it. I prefer to thaw my food in the fridge. But when the Big Guy forgets to bring up a pound of ground turkey from the freezer, and you plan to cook it in less than 24 hours....you sometimes have to take drastic steps.
It is true.
I set it on the counter to get a head start at defrosting.
I'm posting proof because Amy won't believe me if I told her otherwise.
Proof that I did indeed thaw my ground turkey on the counter
(kinda....I put it in the fridge after about an hour or so).
