5. Super-Fast Potato Peeling

7. Keep Mashed Potatoes Warm in a Slow Cooker.

8. Use The Cooler To Free Up Fridge Space

10. The Carve

“When carving your turkey, remove each breast and slice crosswise into thick slices (about ½-inch slices), then both legs, then the wings.

11. Use Oven-Dried, Not Stale, Bread for Better Stuffing

12. Get A Meat Thermometer

“Invest in a meat thermometer! It’s $25 and will not only improve your Thanksgiving turkey but will improve your roast beef, lamb and more throughout the year. Make sure you get one with an alarm. In order to have the perfect turkey and or roast the temp alarm will insure the right temperature without worrying about timing per pound.”
