Friends, save your turkey livers! They are a delicious (and free) ingredient for one of the easiest and classiest Thanksgiving appetizers you can make: turkey liver pâté. All you need is 20 minutes, a blender, and a few ingredients from your refrigerator and pantry….
Thanksgiving is a combination of magic and madness. It’s a day when many of us pour our love into one of the most elaborate meals we are likely to make all year. The reward is a beautiful spread of brown, orange and yellow foods that are best eaten in piles. The risk is preparing that spread against the pressures of time, hungry guests and multitasking.
Since I want you to enjoy your meal as much as possible, I’ve put together a little guide on how to make Thanksgiving planning as easy as (pumpkin) pie.
Study your Recipes
Once you’ve figured out which dishes you’re responsible for, make sure to read up on them. The last thing you want is to realize midway through a recipe, that your butter was supposed to have been at room temperature. Or that you actually should have baked that pumpkin pie yesterday because it needs to chill overnight, and it’s 10 am on Thanksgiving morning. Though it can’t prevent mishaps altogether, having knowledge of your recipes makes things a lot easier, especially when recreational eating is involved….
