Food, family, and friends: Preparing for Thanksgiving

As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, you may be finalizing travel and/or menu plans, frantically cleaning house in anticipation of guests arriving (maybe that is just me), or counting down the days to Black Friday. In all of the craziness of the holiday season, don’t forget about the meat and food safety of your main dishes. Regardless if you are serving a new cut of beef, frying a turkey, serving savory seafood, glazing a ham, slow roasting lamb, or BBQing it is important to make sure you and your loved ones enjoy your time together!

For a little holiday fun you could even visit the UNL Meat Preparation and Safety webpage and quiz your Thanksgiving guests to see who is the most meat savvy (I am easily entertained!).

What are you serving this Thanksgiving? We are serving the traditional turkey, as my sister-in-law is visiting from London, and we thought she would enjoy seeing the American holiday in all of its glory!
