Even if you’re a well-seasoned cook, Thanksgiving dinner preparation can be more than a little overwhelming. If this is your first attempt at Thanksgiving entertaining, turkey preparation can be the most daunting task of all. From thawing and cleaning to seasoning, getting the turkey ready for the oven can be a time-consuming and messy process. With a house full of invited guests and a whole menu full of other dishes to prepare, who has that kind of time?
A recent study,conducted by Harris Interactive, showed nearly 1/3 of Thanksgiving hosts spend 2 hours or fewer socializing with guests on the big day (is that even enough time to eat?). Furthermore, 27% devote 8 hours or more just to cooking. The info graphic above gives you a snapshot of America’s time-stressed holiday preparation.
