Planning Your First Thanksgiving Dinner?  There's An App For That!


Thanksgiving CookDid you invite the family over to your house this year and are you now frantically planning your first Thanksgiving Dinner? Are you plagued by questions like how long does it take to thaw a turkey, how long does it take to roast a turkey, and how do you make sweet potatoes and what about the gravy??  Take a deep breath and relax because now there's an app for that.


This cool little app is called CHOW The Thanksgiving Dinner Coach and it's free. CHOW is a comprehensive step-by-step guide for recipes, shopping, and cooking a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner.


CHOW starts out with a recipe for each item you would want to include in your dinner, from turkey to pumpkin pie, as well as the equipment (pots, pans, utensils) you'll need for preparing that item.  The app then creates a shopping list of everything you'll need to buy.  On to cooking and the app tells you what to prepare ahead of time and then the step-by-step cooking and preparation guide for Thanksgiving Day.


I can look back and laugh at the way I struggled with the preparation and timing the first couple of years I made Thanksgiving Dinner; I would have loved a guide that had all the instructions I needed in one place. 


I hope you take the time to count your blessings, enjoy the time you have with your family and friends, and have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Cheryl - it is such a cool app, especially because it puts the shopping list together for you and they tell you when to prepare what, so that everything is ready at the same time. That was the hardest thing for me. 

Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!
