    Are turkey giblets safe to feed crabs? If they are, I'll give them a go (cooked of course!) and let you know how it goes. I figure they probably are, seeing as my crabs get dried chicken and beef livers, but I wanted to check first.

    Thanks!

    I fed it to mine, or tried to. :chuckle: They hardley touched it. They weren't crazy about the liver or heart either.

    Yup! Most turkeys you buy at the store have giblets in packs in the cavity in the bird. They are most often used for flavoring and thickening gravy - cooked in water, then sometimes chopped really fine (blender or food processor) and included in the gravy.

    I dont do that stuffing either. I don't stuff the turkey, just have never been able to eat the stuffing knowing it was IN there. I use stovetop LOL 89 cents baby!

    We actually do dinner tonight as my hubby works Thursdays. I do my Grandmas menu. Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, homemade bisquits, homemade mac & cheese(bake it in the oven for an hour), salad. Then desserts. It's also 2 of my kids bdays today, so they have a cake that looks like a huge cupcake. It's been tempting them all day.

    I feel for ya, Vicki! I just got done getting (almost) the last of my food prepared tonight. Desserts are all done now (apple pie w/crumbly topping, pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie cake, but whipped cream will be made tomorrow right before eating), stuffing is prepped and ready for the oven (I don't put it in the bird either; my hubby keeps telling me it's not stuffing if it wasn't cooked in the turkey, but I don't care) - my mom's recipe, sausage, celery, onions, mushrooms...yummy!, green bean casserole is ready for baking...I still have to prep and brine the turkey tonight so it will be good for tomorrow and sweet potatoes need to be baked (I'll reheat them tomorrow; I'm too lazy to do sweet potato casserole so we're baking the potatoes and letting people flavor them how they want.

    They both have the same day for birthdays, November 25th, but they are 7 years apart. My oldest is 17 and middle son is 10 today. Youngests is in a month lol

    Dinner was good. We are stuffed and plenty of leftovers for a few days so I won't have to cook. Woohoo! :shmama:

    Emma, it says stuffing on the box, therefore its stuffing LOL

    Haha, I'm with you, Vicki! It's stuffing...we just used it to stuff the baking pan. :)

    Well, after all this discussion about giblets...the turkey didn't have giblets. It had a neck in a bag, with the neck bone still in the middle. Don't ask me - I'm confused.

    Usually there's 2 bags in the turkey. Did you totally check the cavity? The first time I cooked a turkey I only pulled out one bag lol cooked the turkey withthe other bag in it. LOL

    Yeah, Vicki...I totally did that too. Oh well. I split open some of the leg bones and put a shard in there. I then put the 2 crabs that were on the surface by the food bowl (usually they immediately run away) and first Nibs started eating, then (larger) Rocky kicked her away and took over the marrow. I never realized how much they liked marrow!
