Gobble Gobble! Turkey Day is right around the Corner!

I cannot believe Thanksgiving is next week already! I am so excited, and not for the traditional dinner most of you are more than likely anxiously waiting for! Most of my family is not big on turkey (No judgment please), so a few years ago we decided to change it up with a theme! For example, last year we did Argentina Style. We made Empanadas, Asado and 3 different Chimichurris – everything was amazing! The best part is we make a day event out of it. We spend the whole day prepping and cooking and everyone is involved! My in-laws just got back from Italy, and they were so inspired by the authentic way they cook, that this year we are doing Italian. Homemade pasta etc. and no short cuts!  I absolutely can’t wait!

Whether your Thanksgiving is traditional or unconventional like ours, remember to cook safely to avoid a smoke or fire damage in your Minneapolis home. Thanksgiving is the peak day for home cooking fires, followed by of course Christmas and New Year’s.

Here’s some quick tips to always keep in mind!

  • Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stovetop so you can keep an eye on the food.  Use back burners when possible.
  • Stay in the home when cooking your turkey and check on it frequently. Unattended cooking is the leading contributing factor in cooking fires and fire deaths.
  • Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay 3 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 the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags. 
  • 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. 
  • Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button.

Have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving everyone!

Your team has been absolutely amazing, professional, sympathetic and wonderful. They took my mess and made it manageable as I shed a few tears, which they also consoled with empathy.

Yes. I appreciated the ability to funnel all activities thru a one-stop shop proved to be very valuable in a disaster project such as ours demo, construction and finish as well as work directly with insurance company. The team has been professional and those on site have been respectful of our home and schedule.
