It's time to apply for Wishbone U., the St. Petersburg Times' fifth annual Thanksgiving cooking boot camp for people who haven't had much luck preparing the big feast.
To gain admittance, you'll have to plead your case by sending a brief note about why you need help. We're suckers for a sad story, especially when it involves dry drumsticks.
Twelve readers will attend an afternoon hands-on class Oct. 25 at Apron's Cooking School at Publix Supermarket in the Shoppes of Citrus Park in Tampa.
Send entries, including name, age, city of residence and daytime phone number, to Wishbone U., c/o Taste, St. Petersburg Times, P.O. Box 1121, St. Petersburg, FL 33731 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Put THANKSGIVING in the subject line.
Deadline is Oct. 15 and winners will be notified by Oct. 16. Nominations of bad cooks by concerned family and friends are encouraged, but they cannot be submitted anonymously.
