(单词翻译:双击或拖选)
Turkeys will thaw1 in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a severe squall or cold shoulder.
 
During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed2 potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry3 sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Please pass the gravy4.
 
A weight watch and indigestion warning have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness5 around the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper6 off to leftovers7, dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.
 
Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of scattered8 soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early next week, eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone.
