Still Not Sure What To Do For Thanksgiving?

Whether this is your first Thanksgiving making a family meal, you’ve been doing it for years, or you just sit back and watch the Lions play until the food is ready – We know the holidays can be both stressful and rewarding!

Here is a list of cooking safety tips and last-minute ideas to help your meal go great!


• Need help with your turkey?

• Ideas for new sides?

• Not sure what to do for dessert?

• Need game snacks to have by the couch?

Top 10 safety tips:

• Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.

• Stay in the home when cooking your turkey, and check on it frequently.

• Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay three feet away.

• Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns.

• Keep knives out of the reach of children.

• Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child.

• Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet.

• Never leave children alone in a room with a lit candle.

• Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks, or bags.

• Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.

Please remember to be safe this holiday and watch all heat sources for potential hazards.
