Last-Minute Thanksgiving Turkey Tips

Patch is here to rescue you and your Thanksgiving meal.

It's Thanksgiving and you're on the verge of crisis! We rounded up some useful information to help get you through the day and have a fantastic meal:

"Help! I don't know how long to cook the turkey!"

For a 10-18 pound bird, Butterball recommends cooking it for 3 to 3 1/2 hours for an unstuffed bird. Add another 45 minutes to an hour if you like to cook yours with the stuffing inside. Visit their website to find answers to more questions or call their hotline at 1-800-BUTTERBALL (800-288-8372).

"Help!  I forgot a key ingredient!"

Many grocery stores like Kroger and Publix will be open until Thursday afternoon, and some will even be open regular hours.

“Help! My mashed potatoes are a mess!”

Try to soften them up by adding milk or chicken broth. If that still doesn’t work, then try these tips from WebMD on how to dress up store bought items.

“Help! I forgot to buy a centerpiece!”

Some of the best things in life are free! Send the kids out in the backyard to collect leaves, berries and acorns. Arrange them in a vase or a bowl. You can also arrange candles of different heights or place a few on an elevated cake plate for height.

“Help! I totally ruined the entire dinner!”

Help is here - The Blue Willow Inn in Social Circle will be serving a Thanksgiving Meal from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Turkey Day. Call ahead for a reservation and enjoy a Thanksgiving meal prepared by the specialists.
