left: Domo starts by rubbing the Szechuan black bean sauce on the turkey.
right: Then he quickly checks "The Joy Of Cooking" to remind himself what temperature the oven needs to be preheated to.
left: Domo prepares the seasoning vegetables for cooking inside the turkey...
right:...and makes absolutely sure every last garlic clove and ginger root is in place.
left: Finally, Domo puts the bird in the oven...
right:...and is amazed at how much room is in the refigerator now that the turkey's gone.
left: While the turkey roasts, Domo works on the side dishes, debating the necessity of both potatoes and stuffing...
right:...and trying to figure out something to do with the asparagus.
left: After about an hour, the turkey needs to be flipped over; according to the "Joy of Cooking," most of the cooking should happen with the breast down.
right: Two hours later, the turkey is nearly done, and is flipped back right side up so the breast can brown.
left: With the turkey nearly finished, Domo starts working on the vegetables, chopping an onion...
right:...and blanching the asparagus.
left: Then the stir-frying begins; first the onions along with some garlic...
right:...and then the asparagus, with some oyster sauce.
left: The vegetables taken care of, Domo starts in on the stuffing...
right:...which is, as you can see, quite a complicated undertaking.
left: At last, Domo gets to start in on the very hardest things to prepare: cranberry sauce and gravy.
right: Domo checks to see if the turkey is at the proper - and safe - temperature before taking it out of the oven.
left: Domo does the honour of carving the finished turkey...
right:...and seems to be having a bit of trouble...
right:...It appears that somebody has a few unresolved poultry issues that will take years of therapy to cure.
left: Er...Domo? Do you really need to have both drumsticks?
right: I don't think we want to know why there's only one bone left...Keep your fork, Domo...There's pie!
left: Well...there's pie after the dishes are taken care of.
right: And of course, the leftovers need to be put away, too.
left: Hey, Domo...Your piece is on the plate....and it already has Cool-Whip on it.
right: And to go with your pie, Domo, how would you like some eggnog?
left: Domo...you did know the eggnog was spiked, didn't you?
right: In a tryptophan coma, Domo parks himself on the sofa to digest...and dream of leftovers for breakfast.
