Thanksgiving is here, and with it comes family, friends, merriment, and a delicious meal. Thanksgiving is the time of year to sit back and reflect on all that we have in beautiful Point Loma, and we here at the Yarbrough Group couldn’t be more grateful that we get to share it with those closest to us. While preparing to throw YOUR Perfect Thanksgivng Meal, keep these Thanksgiving suggestions in mind:
Properly Cook The Turkey
No Thanksgiving meal is complete without a turkey, but cooking it properly can be difficult if you don’t know what you are doing, especially if you’ve never done it before. On the big day, bake the bird at at least 325 degress for as long as it takes to make sure it has an internal tempurature of at least 165 degrees. This will ensure your turkey is both tasty, and safe to eat.
PRO TIP Completely thaw the bird a day or two in advance to make sure it will cook evenly.

Divvy Up The Chores
There is a TON to do on Thanksgiving, and many try to take on too much on their own. Help Mom mash some potatoes, take out the trash, wash some dishes, or help Dad carve the turkey. Helping is not only appreciated, you will find you enjoy the meal (and the holiday) more if you had at least some small part in it’s preparation.
Account For the Special Dietary Needs of Your Guests
Uncle Joe is Lactose intolerant, Aunt Betty is Vegetarian, Susan is allergic to nuts… This can be extensive and vary greatly depending on your guests. You don’t necesarily have to make something for everyone, but at least knowing the various dietary restrictions of your guests can go a LONG way to helping you throw the perfect Thanksgiving. When in doubt, ask the guest with the restriction to bring something “safe” for them to share.
Enjoy the Family Time
There are precious few days throughout the year when one can do nothing but hang out with their family care-free. Talk with Grandma, and play that game of tag with your younger siblings or cousins. Every day we spend together is a gift, and the memories you make today will be with you for the rest of your life.
Go Easy on the Spirits
Thanksgiving can lead to not only excessive eating, but excessive drinking as well. With a full stomach, it is possible to drink more than one normally could. This can lead to the alcohol “sneaking up on you” as your stomach drains and leaving you feeling not so hot. Enjoy the holiday and revel with family and friends, just make sure you know your limit.
