Here’s some last-minute Thanksgiving cooking advice from my pal Joshua Harlow with Jones Public Relations on how to apply technology to your feast.
The Holiday season sure did come quickly this year. Tomorrow, Oklahomans will gather together to celebrate Thanksgiving. Each of us has our favorite traditions and meals, which in most cases involve watching your Grandpa carve a turkey or helping out your aunt with the pies. Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time for families and friends to get together and give thanks for the past year, but for so many it has started to revolve around hunting down the best deal on a turkey or seeking out the best “new” recipe for the classic green bean casserole. People get so involved in the planning of Thanksgiving; they forget to enjoy the holiday itself.
Thankfully, there is a solution to help bring back Thanksgiving – the smartphone. Almost everyone you know has one, we rely on it all the time, but during the holidays, it’s common to forget you can use it to make life a little easier! Your smartphone or tablet is not only equipped to make calls, get directions or send pictures to family and friends, but can also help with Thanksgiving preparations through the use of apps or accessories.
Have you been searching magazines, old recipes books and websites to find the best pecan pie recipe? Why not download the Pepperplate app on your tablet and take advantage of the enlarged text feature to help keep it away from the pie’s batter.
How many times during the Thanksgiving or Christmas holiday do you find yourself going back and forth to the oven or grill to check the meat for your holiday dinner? There’s a fear of overcooking your precious turkey, but when you constantly open the grill or oven to check on progress, it lowers the temperature and interrupts the cooking process.
