Happy Tuesday!

I'm late posting, but our Sunday dinner, Garlic & Rosemary Roast Beef, Roasted Red Potatoes and Carrots was absolutely delicious. I myself do not consume beef often, but the aroma took me there! I had a couple slices! I didn't regret it! ๐Ÿ˜Š

The Apple Pie by Marie Callender's was delish! ๐Ÿ˜‹

Season Greetings Everyone ๐Ÿ

Thanksgiving is two days away and I would like to share a few safety tips by the @usdagov and myself to remember to stay safe & well!

Tip #1
Clean & Sanitize
Always wash your hands before preparing and handling food. Handwashing helps to prevent the spread of germs. If wearing gloves, always wash your handsย before putting on gloves. I'm a glove fanatic ๐Ÿ˜

Tip #2
Avoid Cross-Contamination

Clean and sanitize any surfaces that will touch food such as cuttings boards tabletops, kitchen counters, stoves, sinks, etc. People leave unsanitary things behind ๐Ÿ˜

If you do wash your turkey in the sink, it must be fully cleaned and sanitized before and afterwards.ย 

Tip #3
Thaw the Turkey Safely
Never thaw a turkey on a counter or in hot water. Thawing a turkey in a refrigerator allows for slow and safe thawing. The turkey will need about 24 hours for every 4 to 5 pounds. After thawing, it is safe to store in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 days.ย 

Tio #4
Cook Thoroughly
Make sure your turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165 F. Use a food thermometer to measure the temp. in three parts: the thickest part of the breast, the innermost part of the wing and the innermost part of the thigh.ย 

For first time Cookers, I recommend to use a Turkey bag to cook your Turkey. This helps maintain the moisture and properly cook the Turkey, based on the bag baking instructions. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tip #5
The Two-Hour Rule
All perishable foods (meat, poultry, fish, dairy products, and all cooked leftovers)
must be refrigerated within 2 hours of being cooked, or 1 hour if the temperature is 90 F or above. After 2 hours, perishable food will enter theย "Danger Zone"ย (between 40 F and 140 F), which is where bacteria can multiply quickly & cause the food to become unsafe. Reheating the foods, then cool properly before storing can prevent this! ๐Ÿ™‚

I'm here to answer any questions to keep you and your family safe, just message me!! You can find these tips & more: https://www.usda.gov/media/press-releases/2021/11/17/keep-your-thanksgiving-full-turkey-and-free-foodborne-illness

Happy Thanksgiving! It's always about Family, Food, Friends & Loveโฃ
