Home for the Holidays

With the Holidays drawing closer the rush to get your home, especially your kitchen, ready is on. We already discussed decluttering and organizing your kitchen in a blog post, but thats only the beginning of holiday prep.

Deck the Halls

For Thanksgiving, many people decorate the table with simple gourds. This year may we suggest adding these Martha Stewart Pom-Pom Toms? These cute turkeys add a fun pop to the table and they can be used a placeholder. Looking for something a little less time consuming? Try these Flaming Foliage Candleholders. Theyll light up any Thanksgiving dinner! You can also get your whole family involved in Thanksgiving crafts with these handprint turkeys. These simple turkeys can either decorate the kids table or be a fun craft for the kids to make after dinner.

Turkey: Its Whats For Dinner

Everyone cooks their turkey a different way. You can fry it, bake it, grill it, brine it, barbeque it, the list goes on. However you choose to make your turkey, here are some tips to get the best bird:
 

 Remember to thaw your turkey. Its best to put it into your refrigerator a couple of days prior to cooking. The weight of the turkey will determine how long it needs to thaw. If you are going to brine your turkey, you need to use a fresh turkey.

 Meat thermometers are a must! Most cookbooks agree that the turkeys internal temperature should be 165? to 180?.

 If youre frying, grilling or smoking your turkey, many cooking websites like AllRecipes.com suggest only using a 10lb to 15lb turkey.

For more tips, we suggest looking at Reluctant Gourmet and EatTurkey.com.
 

 Delicious Thanksgiving Dinner
 
Can I Get That On The Side?
 
Want to spice up your traditional side dishes? Well we found some yummy twists on traditional favorites. Instead of traditional mashed potatoes, try Donna's Good Luck Potatoes or baked mashed potatoes with gruyere topping. These cheesy mashed potatoes will have your guests coming back for seconds and thirds. Make individual servings like these Maple Sweet Potato Cups from MyRecipes.com. This way you know that everyone will get a cup instead of hoping that the sweet potatoes arent gone before you are served.
 
Thought Sangria was just a summer drink? Well its become a fall drink as well thanks to Food & Wines Sage Sangria. This flavorful drink is a great compliment to your Holiday meal. For dessert, some people arent pie people. Thanks to Paula Deens Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake, you can still have your pumpkin dessert without having pie. This cake will literally melt in your mouth. We suggest serving slices with Cool Whip to get the full Thanksgiving dessert experience.
 
From all of us at K&N Sales, we wish you a happy and healthy Holiday season!
