The best thing to do if you cannot carve a turkey is to go to Honeybaked Ham, buy some of their pre-cooked and pre-sliced turkey, and slap it on a plate. That saves hours of headaches.
I am a very good carver and several years ago I taught my husband how to carve it as well. I'm from the old school where the man carves the bird. I even presented him with a special carving set that he is so cute about checking to see if it's sharp enough. LOL!
