*Storebought pies are of the debbil. Don't do that. Pies are ridiculously easy to make, and the house smells so good when they're baking.
*If you have a full house and need to set up a separate table for the kiddies, try to orient it so that you can reach the back of the worst kid's head with a spatula. That way you won't have to get up during the meal.
*Put a long-handled spatula next to your plate.
*Give the turkey enough time to thaw. Your relatives don't want to see you desperately shoving a blowtorch inside Mr. Turkey on Thursday morning.
*If you can manage it, cooking the turkey breast-side down for much of the cooking time does help keep the breast meat moist.
*Seat your weird red-haired cousins in another room and shut the door.
*If their mother objects, put her in there too. She'll come back without them in three minutes. She'll keep her yap shut for the rest of the meal as a bonus.
*If livingroom seating is inadequate, throw something soft on the floor that the kids can lounge on during the football game, while the adults are sleeping.
I'm sure all you guys have other great ideas and helpful hints.

If your Uncle is nodding off on the easy chair, let him.
i'm laughing so hard i'm crying!
What you got against red heads, anyway? You know dang well our family tree don't fork, Ms. Kirby-Muxloe. ;)
For some. Last time I tried cooking, it ended with a visit from the EPA. Not good times. :)
I asked Mrs. RQSR if she had any Thanksgiving tips.
She said "none we can post".
me? have something against redheads?
now where on earth would you get that idea?
Here's my recipe for the perfect Thanksgiving:
Invite no one
Accept no invitations
Stock up on beer
Order a pile of pizza the night before
On Thanksgiving day enjoy your beer, pizza and football, don't even take a shower if you don't want to, it's not like you're going to have company. And don't forget to be thankful for all that life has provided, including the sense to not ruin a perfectly good holiday with insane and stressful plans, which includes not going anywhere with a cash register on black Friday.
A question taken from Ace...
Unstuff BOTH sides of the turkey. Personal experience.
Ditto that part!
Pies are ridiculously easy to make, but learning to make great pies takes years of experience. I am the Pie Queen! Without writing a Pie Opus, I recommend making your crust with lard. I'm here to help....
Well, I am guessing that my WIFE, leda, would give the little tramp a swift kick.
How to ruin Thanksgiving
" What if you are the weird red-haired cousin?"
Bring some of the pie with you.
