Avoid Mishaps Before your Thanksgiving Feast
Thanksgiving, a glorious day. A plump and juicy turkey, creamy mashed potatoes, buttered dinner rolls, a decadent pumpkin pie's time to stop daydreaming. While your stomach may thank you on Thanksgiving Day, if you're in charge of preparing a feast, your stress level may also be at a high. To help make sure the holiday with your friends and family is a success, we have a host of practical tips and useful information for you.
Since the turkey is the star of the meal, the number one priority is making sure your oven is ready to handle the job. In advance, make sure your oven is operating without any complications. With the stakes high, as they say, better safe than sorry. If you're looking for a new oven, GE offers an impressive selection of wall ovens. Some of GE's newest features include the ability to single-handedly open both doors, even roasting due to true European convection with Direct Air, and the ability to control the oven from your phone. Since we know cooking a large turkey takes quite some time, enjoy the convenience of controlling your oven's mode, timer, and temperature from your smart phone. GE also offers a replacement oven guarantee if you meet certain qualifications. Check out their website for more details.
If you're planning a feast for a large number of people, the key to success is preparation. Planning things in advance can go a long way in easing your stress level on the big day. Some of the important activities to take care of ahead of time include: planning your menu, buying your gear, creating a shopping list, ordering a turkey, shopping for drinks, making room in your freezer, deciding on decor. By planning things out a month in advance, you reduce the risk of things going wrong last minute.
