Excellent rule. Although I tried unsuccessfully many times in the past, I succeeded this year by having her do the baking before 11AM. She had nothing to do in the kitchen after that so stayed out of my way. Usually she's hovering around the sink. Every time I need access she's standing in front hogging the space or leabing over to the stove as I'm trying to open the oven. Recipe (ObFood) for disaster if ever there was one. I think I still have the burn scars on my arm to prove it.
Earlier today, she mentioned going back to doing a whole bird next year. I cringe at the thought of what that will entail.
Right now we have 15 thick slices of cooked stuffed turkey breast meat in the freezer and some not frozen. For she-who-insists-on-having- leftovers, I think she's being disingenuous. For once I meet her needs in spades and she's unsatisfied...oy...
Here are two photos of one of the stuffed breasts before I sliced it to freeze:
