While you’re busy brining the bird, put the kids to work on the holiday table. With this fun kit and a bit of glue, it’s easy to make festive turkey place cards for everyone invited to this year’s holiday meal.
If you forget to brine the bird the night before Thanksgiving, there’s still hope for cooking up a juicy, tender turkey. By using this vacuum pump to remove air from the specially-designed bags, you’ll spend less time waiting for the meat to absorb juices and flavors. Bonus: You’ll also use up to 75 percent less brine or marinade in the process.
With a feast this big, leftovers are guaranteed. Make sure those coveted next-day turkey sandwiches taste fresh by covering any excess food with these reusable bowl covers. Made of refrigerator-, freezer- and microwave-safe silicone, these sheets will cling to just about anything, including stainless steel, porcelain, stoneware, plastic, and glass.
When you’re juggling a dozen different dishes in preparation for a big meal, even the most seasoned chef can use an extra hand. Designed to help a busy cook, this app allows you to program up to nine different timers (four oven and five stovetop). Each timer can be labeled and given a different alarm sound, so you’ll be alerted when the mashed potatoes are fully cooked but the string bean casserole needs another 10 minutes.
