This year, Butterball is embracing the new Thanksgiving table as the whole family plays a larger role in preparation for the meal – providing recipes to please everyone in the family and tips to get everyone involved.
Each year my Thanksgiving is spent with my family or my husband’s family and we each help with the meal by bringing a dish. This year is with my family and I will be bring orange rolls to my moms. I love that I can make the dough the night before. Then in the morning, I just shape the rolls and let them raise while I get tother things done.
I also remember as a girl getting to sleep over at my grandma’s house the night before Thanksgiving.
We would get what we could done that night and then I would be there in the morning to help with the rest of the meal preparation. It is one of my best memories with my grandma. This is something I would love to do when I am a grandma. Thanksgiving really is my favorite holiday. I love that it is all about family, food, and showing gratitude.
I have a Butterball Turkey Giveaway for 2 lucky RMK readers for Thanksgiving. Each will get a $20 turkey certificate. I love to use Butterball turkeys. The really can be placed in the oven just with some salt and pepper and turn out amazing. However, they are even better if you want to do something a little more fancy. See the rafflecopter widget below to enter.
Not only does Butterball make a great turkey, they have been helping folks out with their Thanksgiving meal for years.
Their Turkey Talk-Line experts are available to answer your Thanksgiving meal questions, share ways to save, or to gobble up any turkey-day cooking myths. I used them before when trying to deep fry a turkey. They were right there to help me out.
You can also go to Butterball’s website to plan the perfect amount of servings you need in their perfect portion planner. Just plug in the amount of adults and kids you plan on serving into the planner. There are boxes you can check to say we want leftovers, we are big eaters, or we are light eaters. Then, it will tell you the size of turkey you need along with the amount of stuffing. So simple. They also have video guides on topics such as how to thaw or carve.
Usually, I have a week of recipes planned to share with all of you before Thanksgiving. However, I just wasn’t up to it this year. We have had our home torn apart to up grade carpet, tile, and paint. I have been lucky just to get dinner on the table. I do have a round up of great recipes for Thanksgiving that you can check out and use to plan your feast for this year.
