One ‘hot’ Thanksgiving: Turkeys get Flaming Hot Cheetos makeover

Food mashups can be the perfect answer to the traditional, boring holiday gathering. Reynolds Kitchens, the makers of the aluminum foil and cooking bags that help us create in the kitchen, have come up with some different recipes using popular snack foods to amp up the Thanksgiving turkey.

>> Read more trending news

They’re called “Flavor Blasted Turkeys” and use spicy cheese puffs (think Flaming Hot Cheetos), ranch-flavored corn chips (Ranch Fritos), or onion-flavored rings (Funyuns) to add an extra kick to Tom Turkey.

You start all three recipes the same. You put your chip of choice into a food processor or blender and crush them. You can also use the old fashioned rolling-pin/zip top bag technique and work out some holiday frustrations. As long as they’re powered, you’re fine.

Brush oil or butter on the bird to help the coating stick and cover the entire turkey, legs and all, with the crushed-up snack food.

This is where the technique changes depending on which chip you choose.

For Flaming Hot Cheetos turkey:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Put covered turkey in cooking bag.
  • Place bag and turkey in 2-inch deep roasting pan.
  • Cut 6 1/2-inch slits into bag and roast until turkey reaches internal temperature of 180 degrees at the thickest part of the thigh not touching a bone.
  • When it reaches temperature, remove the turkey from the oven and let it sit for 15 minutes in the bag, then slice open the bag, remove the turkey and serve.

For ranch-flavored turkey:

  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Put turkey on aluminum foil that’s tow and a half times longer than the turkey.
  • Overlap foil ends and turn up the sides of the foil to seal in juices.
  • Place turkey and foil into 2-inch deep roasting pan.
  • Roast until turkey reaches internal temperature of 180 degrees at the thickest part of the thigh not touching a bone.
  • Add 30 minutes to the time if turkey is stuffed.
  • To brown the turkey and coating, turn back the foil for last 30 minutes of roasting.
  • When it reaches temperature, remove the turkey from the oven and let it sit for 15 minutes in the foil, then remove the turkey and serve.

For onion-flavored turkey:

  • Preheat oven to 325.
  • Lay a sheet of foil under turkey in roasting pan
  • Make a foil tent, leaving an inch between the turkey and the foil for heat circulation. Crimp the tent to bottom foil along the long sides of pan.
  • Roast until turkey reaches internal temperature of 180 degrees at the thickest part of the thigh not touching bone.
  • Add 30 minutes to the time if turkey is stuffed.
  • To brown the turkey, remove foil tent after one hour.
  • When it reaches correct temperature, remove the turkey from the oven and let it sit for 15 minutes covered in foil.

Pentagon accidentally re-tweets call for Trump's resignation

A post on the Pentagon’s official Twitter account called for President Donald Trump’s resignation on Thursday when a message was mistakenly re-tweeted, according to officials with the Department of Defense.

>> Read more trending news

The tweet was quickly deleted, Politico reported.

The original message was posted by Ryan Knight, who goes by the Twitter handle @proudresister. Knight pointed to calls for U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore, of Alabama, to step down amid allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women, and for Sen. Al Franken, D-Minnesota, to resign after recent allegations that he forcibly kissed a woman in 2006 and groped her as she slept.

“The solution is simple,” Knight wrote. “Roy Moore: Step down from the race. Al Franken: Resign from congress. Donald Trump: Resign from the presidency. GOP: Stop making sexual assault a partisan issue. It’s a crime as is your hypocrisy.”

Moore has denied any wrongdoing. Franken apologized on Thursday and called for an investigation into the 2006 incident.

The post was shared for a brief time Thursday on the Department of Defense’s official Twitter account.

Chief Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said that the re-tweet was posted accidentally.

“An authorized operator of the @DeptofDefense’s official Twitter site erroneously retweeted content that would not be endorsed by the Department of Defense,” White said in a tweet Thursday. “The operator caught this error and immediately deleted it.”

More than a dozen women accused Trump of sexual misconduct in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. He emphatically denied the accusations, which dated back to the 1980s.

The accusations were made after a 2005 video surfaced in which Trump made derogatory comments about women.

"You know, I'm automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait. And when you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” Trump said in the video. “Grab them by the (expletive). You can do anything."

First lady Melania Trump defended her husband's comments, telling Fox News in 2016 that her husband's words were offensive and inappropriate but that they did not reflect his views on women.

A white cargo van sped through the drive-through, striking Jose Furtado, 65, around 7 p.m., according to WABC. Furtado was taken to St. Joseph’s Medical Center, where he died.

"Speed no matter where you go, they don't slow down,” Furtado’s friend, James Reed told WABC. “You know, I think this is a wake-up call for everybody. Everybody knows (Furtado) from Dunkin' Donuts, church folks, church members, no matter who, no matter what race or color or creed they are he'd treat them all the same."

The 59-year-old driver and 15-year-old passenger were not injured. 

Police are reviewing surveillance footage. 

“No criminal charges have been filed at this time,” Passaic County prosecutor Camelia Valdes told the New Jersey Record. “However, the investigation remains active and ongoing.”

The Dunkin’ Donuts, a family-owned franchise which is typically open 24 hours, was closed Thursday to mourn the loss of Furtado.

Dept. of State issues 'Europe Travel Alert' due to heightened risk of terrorist attacks

As the holiday season approaches, many families are preparing to take advantage of school breaks, federal holidays and remaining paid time off by traveling out of state to see family and friends and desirable international destinations.

But according to the U.S. Department of State, prospective travelers might want to reconsider any plans to journey across the pond.

In a travel advisory issued Thursday, government officials warned citizens of a heightened risk of terrorist attacks throughout Europe, particularly during the holiday season. The advisory urged American travelers who go abroad to be cautious at holiday festivals and events. 

Officials cited two terrorist attacks that occurred in Europe last year -- one in which a man drove a truck into a German Christmas market, killing 12 people and injuring dozens more, and another in which a gunman shot and killed 39 people during a New Year’s celebration in Istanbul, Turkey.

“Extremists continue to focus on tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets/shopping malls and local government facilities as viable targets. In addition, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, parks, high-profile events, educational institutions, airports and other soft targets remain priority locations for possible attacks,” the advisory reads. “U.S. citizens should exercise additional vigilance in these and similar locations.”

The advisory is in effect until Jan. 31.

Americans traveling abroad can always check the website of the U.S. Embassy or consulate in a destination city for any recent security messages.

‘Flamin’ Hot Cheetos’ Turkey Is Spicing Up the Holidays

‘Flamin’ Hot Cheetos’ Turkey Is Spicing Up the Holidays

These tiny superheroes overcome the odds to become the Justice League

They face insurmountable odds, but that’s not stopping a group of kids from fulfilling their superhero dreams.

Josh Rossi is a photographer who helped the group of children, who are living with either disease or disability, to see their inner heroes, calling the six children the real Justice League

>> Read more trending news

Rossi and his wife, Roxana, worked with costume designers to help dress the children in to their super alter egos. Each child then received a copy of their photo.

Their stories:

Kayden Kinckle, 5, is a double-amputee and has been for most of his life. Both of his legs were removed when he was younger. He was also born with omphalocele, a condition in which his organs grow outside of his navel. Kayden was the team’s Cyborg and was the first member of the Justice League. Click here to read Kayden’s biography.

Sofie Loftus is the second member of the team. She was diagnosed at the age of 3 with a rare cancer called embryonal rhabdomyoscarcoma. Days before her chance to get in front of the camera as Wonder Woman, Sofie had her radiation treatment. She was weak but Rossi said she did her poses with fierceness.

Teagan Pettit, 9, is the team’s Man of Steel. Teagan was born with half a heart, or HLHS (hypoplastic left heart syndrome). He’s had three open heart surgeries, among other procedures, to help him live. He has to wear oxygen at night and had a feeding tube until recently. Teagan loves Superman, Rossi said, so what better Justice League member is there for him to be? For more on Teagan and his story, click here.

Mataese Manuma is the fourth member of the team. He’s only 2, but is battling megakaryoblastic leukemia. He was supposed to have his photo session shortly after a round of chemotherapy, but woke up a fever. It took a few days for him to be well enough to get in front of the camera and pose as Aquaman. Mataese needed help from his brother, and Rossi’s Photoshop prowess, to get him into poses because he was so weak at the time. To help Mataese and his family, click here.

Zaiden Stolrow was suited up as The Flash. Zaiden has severe ADHD and has non-stop energy, Rossi said. He got in trouble at school because he couldn’t sit still and wait. All he  wanted to do was run, but instead, Rossi said, Zaiden was sitting in the principal’s office during a school fundraising race with tears in his eyes because he had been in trouble for not behaving. His friends also stopped inviting him over because of his energy. There’s no better match for him than The Flash, a superhero who runs at the speed of light and never stops.

Finally, there was Batman of the Justice League. That honor went to Simon Fullmer, 5, who is battling nerve cancer called neuroblastoma. He loves the Dark Knight and Bruce Wane, Rossi said. Simon’s mother told Rossi that her son is a “very literal kid,” meaning he doesn’t want to soften the blow when it comes to what’s happening to his health.
