Happy Thanksgiving, it's here this week on Thursday the 28th! Monday is the best day to pick up anything you really need to be fresh for Thursday, Tuesday at the very latest! The closer you get to Thanksgiving day the crazier it gets in the stores & the less you have to pick from. Also get your turkey out & defrost it, it is never fun to do the turkey defrost in the sink, a tub, & don't use a hot tub, yes I've heard of people doing this! I brine my turkey for 24 hours so it has to be defrosted by Wednesday morning at the latest to work for my timeframe.
