Five days until (Canadian) Thanksgiving! My frozen turkey is out of the freezer today and in to the fridge. I will be cooking my bird on Saturday, to eat on Sunday. I have found this much easier, as it allows me to do all the messy stuff the day before. My bird is about 22 pounds, so it will need about 4 days in the fridge to thaw.
Tip: Your frozen turkey will need about 1 day in the fridge for every 5 pounds of weight, so be sure to take it out early enough that you can thaw it in the fridge (safer than room temperature thawing).
I’m still on the hunt for a great starter soup for Thanksgiving dinner. In case you are as well, here are some great ideas I have found, including a vegetarian and a vegan soup option …
6. Roasted Pear and Butternut Soup (scroll down on that page for recipe)
10. Curried Carrot and Parsnip Soup (Pictured Above)
Do you have a great Thanksgiving soup idea/recipe? Let me know about it in the comments!
In case you missed it, I also did a round-up of some great Thanksgiving Vegetable Side Dishes earlier.
