Turkey Day Safety

Growing up, my mother always cooked her stuffing in the turkey. It was delicious, the stuffing not the turkey, that was more of a centerpiece. Little did we know back then that we were living on the edge.

Food poisoning will put a serious crimp in your Black Friday plans, my friend. If you cringe every time you see your Aunt Martha wipe down the counters with a sponge that has been in her sink since the pilgrims landed or you get queasy when you see your nephew touch every dinner roll with his grubby hands before putting one on his plate, check out this site and forward it with offending family members under the guise of sharing recipes.

And if you’re still one of the few who cook their stuffings in the bird, err on the side of caution and invest in a food thermometer. Who doesn’t need a new kitchen gadget anyway?
