Thanksgiving is almost here. How many of you people are gonna be doing the cooking/hosting family & friends and how many will be among the hosted? How many will be eating in a home and how many plan to dine out?
How many of you have had some sort of Thanksgiving dinner disaster happen at a dinner you hosted, were attending, or were otherwise involved in?
A couple of years ago, we were hosting dinner. Turkey was cooking just fine, sides were ready to go, and the alarm on the electronic thermometer goes of saying the turkey was done. We pull it out and set it on the counter to rest while the sides cook/reheat.
We started carving it. At first, nothing seemed awry, but about halfway into carving, the breast meat began to look a bit on the rare side. Seems the thermometer malfunctioned and the temperature reading was off by about 75 degrees. The thighs were practically raw.
We took the most done pieces and nuked them for a couple of minutes and wrapped the raw parts in foil & threw them back in the oven. It turned out ok.
I mean it’s not like anyone died or anything…
