Thanksgiving countdown: Chat with Times test kitchen Manager Noelle Carter
Some of us are fumbling with cooking just one turkey for Thanksgiving.
But apparently some of you out there are stocking up on turkeys as a way to save money. At least that's the advice from Teri Gault at the Grocery Game, a quickly growing -- and somewhat controversial -- website about couponing. (You'd hardly think couponing would be controversial. But our story about Gault brought several e-mails of thanks -- as well as several e-mails complaining that she had a lot of gall to charge folks for her information, and taking us to task for writing about the Santa Clarita-based Gault.)
If you are stocking up on turkeys, we've got plenty of easy-to-make recipes for you, and we'll soon have that leftovers package posted. And if you are like the rest of us, don’t panic. There’s still time to get a turkey dinner on the table. (If you are really pressed for time, check out this recipe for "Hurry-up turkey.")
And be sure to check back here at noon Wednesday when Times test kitchen manager Noelle Carter will be online to help you with any last-minute emergencies. (If you cannot make the chat, shoot us an e-mail with your questions and we'll get them answered anyway. We're all service!)
Remember: An electronic drumstick to anyone who can stump her.
