Thanksgiving Hacks

Cousin Reginald | The Saturday Evening Post

Make your turkey a week ahead of time, then eat it and tell everyone Thanksgiving is canceled.

Hors d’oeuvres can be made easily and quickly if you have Greek olives, Gryere cheese, crackers and an experienced chef who knows what to do with those things.

Salad can be made faster if you break the rules and chop the lettuce instead of gently tearing it. It won’t matter because NO ONE IS GOING TO EAT THE SALAD.

To make your mashed potatoes memorable, add a clove or two of garlic; to make your mashed potatoes REALLY memorable, add a strong laxative.

If you find you are out of yeast, you can leaven your homemade rolls with a cocktail straw and a LOT of patience.

It’s easy to find a wine that goes well with a turkey dinner. It’s called, “beer”…

If you have a patio or deck that you want to burn down, I recommend you deep-fry your turkey.

Humus is a great addition to your meal for any vegetarian or vegan guests… a perfect prelude for the family farting contest after the Sun goes down.

You can make your green bean casserole early. Make it a year early and you’ll have something to feed everyone on the previous Thanksgiving.
