Make Thanksgiving Easy On Yourself [AUDIO]

Many people are doing their own cooking this Thanksgiving, and that’s good.  But sometimes people forget the basics, and it becomes a complicated affair.  Well, being a master chef myself, I thought I’d help you (actually, I have the latest Reader’s Digest, and I got the tips from them)

I know your kitchen isn’t this big.  These folks are pros.  But you can cook like a pro too and keep it simple at the same time, according to the Reader’s Digest article




Here’s just one tip that I thought was interesting: (A simple concept, but people forget about it sometimes)

All you need is turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, and a vegetable. If you have time to make more dishes, go for it. But don’t feel like you HAVE to.

So no ambrosia salad then?  Darn!!!     There are also tips about what temperature to cook the turkey at, and how to do it efficiently so it will cook right.

Man, I wish I had read this last year.  You wouldn’t believe what happened.  Let me tell you musically!
