 A while back, I performed surgery on a garden statue for someone and recently I upgraded my surgical skills to perform surgery on a turkey. Don't worry, he didn't feel a thing as he was dead.  I agreed to cook a turkey for a group for a Christmas party. The frozen turkey was delivered to my house. When I opened the opaque bag, this is what I found, the skin on the breast was missing, and also one of the drumsticks.  I wasn't impressed and felt a little panicky as I thought that it would dry up without the skin.  I started to sprinkle a little bit of pepper and decided that maybe I could cover the flesh with the neck skin.

I have an open roasting pan with handles at an angle which makes it difficult to cover with foil paper so I decided to take a trip to town to buy a roasting pan with cover as I thought that the turkey would dry up without the skin. Fortunately, they had left the neck skin intact so I cut it off and opened it, and stitched it on the breast and voila, my problem was solved. I seasoned the turkey with salt and pepper and it turned out so tender and moist. 

Sorry, I didn't take a picture of the cooked turkey. After the turkey had cooled completely, I removed the neck skin and sliced the meat ready to serve.
