A Thanksgiving for 100

Friendsgiving is a roaring trend. People all over the country reserve a day for a second or maybe third, Thanksgiving celebration.

Janet Smith, Chi Omega House Cook, helps the 160 sorority sisters celebrate their Friendsgiving accordingly by preparing and cooking a full blown Thanksgiving meal a few days before the women leave to return home for their family Thanksgivings.

Cooking on such a large scale can be overwhelming and time consuming. But, Smith is here to give us a few tips on how to make our very own Thanksgiving meal.

  1. Make sure to take the packet out of the neck cavity that has the giblets in it. Don’t bake it in the turkey… It will ruin it.
  2. Bake your turkey in a cooking bag. It will brown nicely and will not dry out.
  3. When the turkey is done, take it out, set it on the counter, cover it with kitchen towels and let it sit and it will carve nicely.
  4. Bake the pies the night before. Makes it easier so you don’t have to wake up as early.
  5. Enjoy your time cooking!
