What to Do Three Days before Thanksgiving
By Shauna Hanus
You have only three days left; it is coming down to the wire. You will begin to prepare for cooking and clean your home for your upcoming Thanksgiving celebration. These are busy days but by sticking with your Thanksgiving planning calendar you will breeze through these stressful days and have a wonderful Thanksgiving to show for it.
Three days before Thanksgiving:
Defrost your frozen turkey. Take out a cookie sheet and place the frozen turkey on the cookie sheet. This will catch any of the juices that may leak out of the bag. Make room in your refrigerator and place the turkey on the cookie sheet in the refrigerator to thaw.
The old method of thawing a turkey in the sink with water is no longer the preferred method. Bacteria can grow on the outside of the turkey if the water gets to warm. Cooking will not kill these bacteria. So be sure to start now with the refrigerator thawing method.
Now is the time to clean your house. Scrub the bathrooms, vacuum the floors, dust the tables and shut the doors to the kids’ rooms. You can easily enlist help from all your family members, they may even feel it is the least they can do help you because you will be doing so much delectable cooking.
Set up all your tables and chairs. Make sure that you will have plenty of room to accommodate your guest list. This will give you time to make adjustments if your guest list is large.
If you rented any tables and chairs this is the time to pick them up and set them up.
