6 Thanksgiving Hacks

Help make Thanksgiving Day more about spending time with friends and family than frantically trying to get food on the table and clean-up with these 6 Thanksgiving Hacks to make your day run easier. #Thanksgiving #ThanksgivingHacks

Let’s face it. Thanksgiving can leave us scrambling to get everything on the table. You want everything to be hot, but it’s so hard to get everything done at the exact same time. It certainly makes the holiday stressful. Thankfully, there are things you can do to make things easier. Let’s take a look at some Thanksgiving hacks.

Cook Your Turkey Overnight

If you want more oven space on the big day, cook your turkey in the oven overnight. You can slow cook a turkey at 250 degrees. Best of all, you’ll end up with a fall-off-the-bone tender turkey that everyone is going to love.

Use Your Slow Cooker to Keep Things Warm

If you have a slow cooker, it can be used to keep side dishes at the perfect temperature. This allows you to get some things done and not worry about them getting cold. Most slow cookers have a warming function. Another great tip is to add butter to the top of mashed potatoes stored in a slower cooker to prevent any drying on top.

I usually cook my Dutch green beans recipe the day before, refrigerate, and then add to the slow cooker to warm about an hour before the Thanksgiving meal.

Keep Gravy Warm in a Thermos

Go ahead and get your gravy made. You can keep it warm inside a thermos. Pour boiling water into the thermos beforehand. Pour the water out and add the gravy. This will keep your gravy hotter for longer.

Clear Up Precious Fridge Space

Chances are you need lots of drinks for your guests, but you also need fridge space. Instead of putting your drinks in the fridge, put them into a cooler along with ice. A large cooler will allow you to store a lot of drinks. This will prevent the need to keep refilling throughout the day.

Use Aluminum Foil In Your Roasting Pan

Don’t have a fancy roasting rack? No worries. All you need to do is crumble up some aluminum foil into a rope and then roll into a spiral. Place in the bottom of your roasting pan and it will keep your turkey from sitting in the drippings and all you have to do is toss it after the turkey is done.

Opt for Disposable Pans

Who wants to do all that cleaning after eating that much food? Instead of having tons of pots and pans to scrub, why not use disposable pans? You can find everything from turkey roasters to cake pans at the Dollar Tree. This truly makes cleanup a breeze.

Thanksgiving doesn’t have to be crazy. There are so many hacks you can use to make the holiday easier.

Cheap Kindle Books: Trust My Heart for $1.99 (85% off)

For a limited time, you can buy Trust My Heart Kindle book written by Carol J. Post for only $1.99 (85% off) from Amazon.

About the book:

Grant McAllister arrives in Murphy, North Carolina, with one aim: to sell his inherited property and leave as quickly as possible. The big-city lawyer has no interest in his late, estranged grandparents or the dilapidated mansion he just acquired. After his high-profile divorce, he should be avoiding perky reporters, too. But Jami Carlisle is honest, funny, and undeniably appealing.

After breaking up with her safe-but-smothering boyfriend, Jami is determined to ace her first big assignment. A story about the McAllister estate is too intriguing to ignore—much like its handsome, commitment-phobic heir. Thanks to her digging, the pieces of Grant’s fraught family history are gradually fitting into place, but also upending all his old beliefs.

The two draw closer as they share their dreams, until misread signals and misunderstandings begin to test their trust. But in the unspoiled beauty of the Smoky Mountains, there’s healing and forgiveness to be found. And for Grant, this unplanned detour may be just what’s needed to finally guide him home…

FREE Kindle Book: Fourth and Long (Three Rivers Ranch Romance Book 3)

Right now, you can download Fourth and Long (Three Rivers Ranch Romance Book 3) Kindle book written by Liz Isaacson for FREE from Amazon.

About the book:

Can one summer together make up for eight years of separation?

Commander Brett Murphy left his family’s construction firm in Oklahoma City for a life of hard work at Three Rivers Ranch. Alone, without a wife and kids, Brett needs the camaraderie he enjoyed while serving overseas with his Army buddies, Squire Ackerman and Peter Marshall.

What Brett doesn’t need is the reappearance of his ex-wife. Fiery Kate Donnely has come to Three Rivers to confess to Brett that they’re still married, and oh, he has a seven-year-old son she never told him about. At least not in letters she mailed.

Eight years ago, Kate left Oklahoma City only weeks after Brett’s first deployment, shamed because of her bad choices and the unborn child of a man she’d already asked for a divorce. She needs him to sign the papers now or she can’t have access to her hefty inheritance. But Brett absolutely does not want Kate to take his son away from him again.

They strike a deal: She’ll stay at Three Rivers for the summer so Brett can have the opportunity to get to know his son. How far will they have to go and how much will they have to forgive in order to become a family?

Please note: Kindle prices tend to change quickly, so be sure to check that the total still says $0.00 before you “purchase” it.  If you do accidentally purchase a Kindle book after the price has increased, you do have a short amount of time to request a refund from Amazon.
