What’s in the Oven?

In case you’re doing the last-minute turkey scramble, be it a first-time host or you just need a different twist on cooking the holiday bird, Ina Garten’s (A.K.A. The Barefoot Contessa) sure-fire tasty but easy recipe is a winner. This is an uncomplicated way to get your veggies and turkey done all in one pan. Plus it has oodles of olive oil and a stuffing recipe on the side. You can have your guests bring the squash, green bean casserole, desserts or additional condiments.

What’s Thanksgiving without the turkey fever – a four day stint of sandwiches, soups, or pot pie? Last Thanksgiving, all we asked our guests to bring were the desserts. I recall asking for desserts – not disasters. Rule of thumb – always keep an extra something in the cupboards for any cooking catastrophe. You can always make it up with an interactive game of charades. All was forgotten about runny chocolate cream pie once the guests engaged in a challenging game of how many syllables and it begins with… It gets competitive in a big family. The store-bought Tiramisu ended up being the winner in the dessert category.

Post your fondest Thanksgiving memories or tips for how to make it through the holiday meal. To end with our inspirational quote for the day, Johnny Carson obviously attended a disastrous holiday meal. “How to thaw a frozen turkey – blow in its ear.” To be safe, go to a local turkey farm and buy it fresh.
