Thanksgiving Mishaps! {$50 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway}

I’m not going to  lie.  Thanksgiving generally is a whirlwind around these parts.  Most of the reason behind it is because of our total lack of planning.  Even though a lot of our family lives right next door (literally), we are all extremely busy and by the time we plan out what we are going to do it is usually the week right before.  While we haven’t had any major mishaps, there have been the occasional uh-ohs that have been resolved easily.  In the end, what really matters is that we were able to spend time together and have fun.

The biggest mistakes that have happened is not having enough turkey (not that anyone truly cared) or purchasing spaghetti squash instead of butternut (we just made it work).  So, our Thanksgiving Mishaps generally turn into Thanksgiving “Make-it-Work-and-Move-on”.  I have learned a few things over the years about the actual cooking part and that is to try to spread the wealth as much as possible.  Have family members and friends sign-up to bring different parts of the meal so that all of the pressure is not on just one person.  Also, we have gone from cooking the traditional turkey to slow cooking a turkey roast.  Everyone seems to enjoy this much more and we have leftovers that we can actually stomach the next day!

In honor of Thanksgiving and all of the things that go on around that time of year, Walmart has created a Thanksgiving Mishaps website that features tips and tricks from Chef Richard Ingraham.  Check out his videos and friendly face!  You may be surprised at what you will learn.

Now Walmart would like to provide you with a $50 gift card in order to help your Thanksgiving be a little less stressful!  Here’s How to Win:
