Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away. Where does time go? According the this New York Times article if you don’t have time to cook anything ahead, you can get Thanksgiving dinner on the table in eight hours. We assume you’ll do all your shopping ahead. On Turkey day start at 8 AM by turning on the oven to 400 degrees and taking out a pound of butter letting it come to room temperature. Prepare Turkey and put it back in the refrigerator. Put the wines that need to served cold in the refrigerator, too. Make the desert, the sweet potatoes and the dressing. Take the turkey from the refrigerator at 11 AM; allow it to sit for an hour; put it in the oven at Noon. On top of the stove make the cranberry sauce, the mashed potatoes and kale. Next make the salad, set aside and dress just before serving. After the turkey comes out of the oven around 3 PM, put the dishes that need to be warmed back in the oven, open the wine and carve the turkey. Your dinner should be ready to go on the table at about 4 PM, eight hours after you started. Of course you can use your own family favorite recipes but you may find the time table helpful to keeping the day’s chaos under control.
