Dated: November 18 2020
The good news: Thanksgiving turkey and pumpkin pie haven’t been canceled. The bad news? You may not be squeezing yourself around a table with 10 of your nieces and nephews to celebrate Thanksgiving 2020. Because coronavirus still makes indoor celebrations a little dicey - and the new CDC Thanksgiving guidelines recommend celebrating indoors only with friends and family who live in your household - you have two safe options for planning your Thanksgiving celebration: an outdoor feast or a virtual one.
HOST THANKSGIVING OUTDOORS
1. Get your patio or backyard ready!
2. Get a little creative with the menu - think grills and slow-cookers.
3. Offer hot beverages to stay warm.
4. Plan some (safe) outdoor entertainment.
5. Spend some time sharing what you're thankful for.
HOST THANKSGIVING VIRTUALLY
1. Create a decorating scheme - and stick to it!
2. Coordinate menus with all involved.
3. Set a place for the computer so everyone can video chat.
4. Get creative with family traditions - like online options of your favorites!
5. Take turns in sharing what you're thankful for.
Perfect Roast Turkey Recipe
-1/4 pound unsalted butter1 lemon, zested and juiced
-1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
-1 fresh turkey (10 to 12 pounds)
-Freshly ground black pepper
-1 large bunch fresh thyme
-1 whole lemon, halved
-1 Spanish onion, quartered
-1 head garlic, halved crosswise
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the zest and juice of the lemon and 1 teaspoon of thyme leaves to the butter mixture. Set aside.
3. Take the giblets out of the turkey and wash the turkey inside and out. Remove any excess fat and leftover pinfeathers and pat the outside dry. Place the turkey in a large roasting pan. Liberally salt and pepper the inside of the turkey cavity. Stuff the cavity with the bunch of thyme, halved lemon, quartered onion, and the garlic. Brush the outside of the turkey with the butter mixture and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Tie the legs together with string and tuck the wing tips under the body of the turkey.
4. Roast the turkey about 2 1/2 hours, or until the juices run clear when you cut between the leg and the thigh. Remove the turkey to a cutting board and cover with aluminum foil; let rest for 20 minutes.
5. Slice the turkey and serve.
