Tips For Perfect Thanksgiving & Christmas Turkey
Turkey Tips for Thanksgiving
By Lance Winslow
Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner is now easy task and I am sure the Harvest of 1641 was no exception for the Plymouth Pilgrim Colony. You think you have your work cut out for you, they had 90 Indians show up and the feast lasted three days. There are many things that you need to know about preparing a large feast even you are only have 9 Indians show up at your house.
You will first need to decide all the side dishes and number of people so you have enough and it is best to error on the side of too much rather than running out. You do not want to get scalped by any of your guests, additionally if they bring some food to the meal such as the Indians did at the Harvest Feast which was essentially the model for the Thanksgiving Holiday, then you need to make sure they do not forget. By the way the Indians brought venison to the first feast.
One of the most important things to remember when cooking a turkey is that frozen turkeys can take up to twenty four or more hours to thaw out. So you really have to have the cooking time, plus the thaw out time figured out correctly. Also if you have some little kids and you are going to put them at a different table, you might consider paper plates. It saves of the wrinkled fingers doing all those dishes and it really does help prevent breakage. Please be thinking about a strategy in serving your Thanksgiving dinner, write it all down and have a plan.

P.S. Don’t stress over “perfect” dishes though, as Thanksgiving is meant to be Thankful for the family and friends you have, and all the marvelous things that the Lord has done and will do for you!
