One Week to Go

  • Clean out the fridge.
  • If you're roasting a frozen turkey, pick it up and start thawing. Note that thawing in the fridge will take one day for every 5 pounds of meat. A 15-pound turkey will require three days to thaw thoroughly. plan on extra time if you are planning on brining your turkey (it requires 2 days to brine a thawed, non-self basting turkey- see Thanksgiving Countdown 2 for brining instructions and recipe).
  • Wash glassware
  • Clean house and make sure you have what you need for houseguests.
  • Review the menu against the shopping list; are you on target with make-ahead dishes?
