Thanksgiving – Hosting the Meal Means Planning

How Much Turkey Do I Need?


Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away.  If you are hosting the meal, now is the time to start some of the early planning.  That includes: deciding what’s on the menu, who is bringing what, how much turkey do I need?  Mary Alice Coffey from the Butterball Turkey Talk Line has some advice on the turkey.

Coffey says you will need to decide if you want a frozen bird or a fresh one.

As you are doing your planning you find you still have that turkey you bought last year when it was on sale.  Coffey says it’s OK to use that bird…

As we get closer to the Thanksgiving Holiday, KCHI will have advice from the Butterball Turkey Talk Line for thawing and cooking the bird this year.
