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 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 stove top 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 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.
