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.
- 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.
- Bake your turkey in a cooking bag. It will brown nicely and will not dry out.
- 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.
- Bake the pies the night before. Makes it easier so you don’t have to wake up as early.
- Enjoy your time cooking!
