11 Thanksgiving Dinner FAILS and How to Avoid Them

thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I've dusted off my favorite Dinner Fail apron. Why the pessimism? Because something ALWAYS goes wrong. It's inevitable. I can't tell you how many times I've cried, or had too much to drink while cooking, or had to hide away a ruined dish ... probably because I've blocked those memories. This is part of my problem: I have trouble learning from my mistakes because I kind of want to just pretend they didn't happen.

Anyhoo, I'm going to be brave and try to remember those mistakes anyway. For your sakes, dear readers. Here are 11 mistakes you might make for Thanksgiving dinner -- and how you can avoid them.

What have been your worst Thanksgiving dinner fails?

umm a turkey should sit one hour and rest before serving...this way it absorbs all its juices back  it will be done before the sides. a little warm cicken broth poured over it before carving will heat it back up  and the hot gravy will do the rest.
