Don’t be like Clark Griswold when cooking your Thanksgiving Turkey this year.
Chef Lisa Beels explains the top 5 common mistakes to avoid when cooking your turkey.
1. Everyone must bring something – Yes, that means you too, even if you host the party. You must provide alcohol, food and some fun. Perhaps you have a trivia contest and the winner gets a bottle of booze, a gift certificate or frozen turkey. But your job is to play host, not to cook every dish in the place. Everyone needs to bring a dish to pass and help prepare it – or they go home.
2. Stuffing – Make sure there is a lot of stuffing. If someone makes a comment about too much stuffing then you slap them in the face.
3. Step up your Turkey Day Apparel – This isn’t Thanksgiving with your grandparents who already think you’re not funny. This is with your friends, your bro’s – a great time to be thankful for the debauchery you and your friends have lived through over the years. So why not continue it and crush an ugly sweater, maybe some turkey pants and perhaps a hat that screams “everyone look at me.”
4. Don’t be that guy sitting on the couch watching football all night. Everyone knows that guy and you shouldn’t be it. Also, don’t be the drunkest one at the party acting like a buffoon. Graze the apps, take down a few big gulps and help your buddies fry that turkey that you have been talking about for months.
5.Last but not least make sure everyone is having a good time. If they aren’t, then start pouring stiffer drinks and crank up the tunes.
