Thanksgiving Dinner Tips and Shortcuts  

Thanksgiving dinner is always a big production as it is traditionally the most important meal in the year.  Whether this is your first one to host or not, these Thanksgiving dinner tips and shortcuts will make your traditional American meal an easier job. We have 3 posts this week about these tips and shortcuts: stuffing, traditional gravy and pumpkin pie, by Jason Parker, Executive Chef of the Westwood Country Club in Northern Virginia.

Tips One: Never stuff your turkey ahead of time.

  • The turkey should be stuffed only when it is ready to go into the oven.
  • The stuffing should be spooned lightly into the turkey’s body and neck cavities.
  • Don’t pack it because the internal temperature of the stuffing must reach 165˚F, otherwise it will not get hot enough. Stuffing also tends to expand as it absorbs moisture from the bird so filling the turkey lightly will give you the best results.


Stay tuned for tomorrow's Tip Two on traditional gravy.

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED.
