"Wow ,Tad everything looks wonderful and the smell is that dinner I smell?... cooked by and your own hands ?"
"Are you suggesting I can't cook?'asks Tad hands on his hips an apron strung over his head and around his waist that reads KISS THE COOK.
"You cook an entire turkey all by yourself is it edible?'asks Krystal
"Come and see smell and have a little taste of this masterpiece" says Tad proudly taking Krystal to the turkey which is on the counter on a serving plate all cut up and offering her a piece
"MMmmm that is tender!' says Krystal "Mouthwatering.Did you make dressing?'
