So I screwed up. We're having early Thanksgiving this weekend. My wife picked up a local turkey, frozen, stored it in a refrigerator, and gave it to me to take home and do either a sink thaw or put it in our fridge. "Don't leave it in the car," she said. Guess what? [more inside]

Low effort holiday feasting?

My favorite part of the holidays is the FOOD. I love all the rich, sweet, and special seasonal eats, and I love to make them for my people. Unfortunately, this year, I Just Can't. Thinking about planning and cooking is stressful rather than exciting right now. How can I make nomming as low key as possible in terms of planning/effort, but still awesome? Wanting specific suggestions for Thanksgiving, periChristmas, and New Year's. Family will be visiting at various points. This is in the U.S., and we have a Trader Joe's and a Costco nearby.

Fixing a crockpot meal.

I made took a simple chicken and noodles recipe and doctored it up a little bit with onions, celery, shallots, and carrots. Otherwise the same recipe (I added a like 2 ounces more broth than they called for, and cream of mushroom instead of chicken). I'm not sure what happened, but the result in my crock pot with ~2 hours remaining is very, very soupy, and doesn't look right at all. Is there anything I could do to salvage this and make it creamy?

Beer Me, Cocktail Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me

A friend brought an 18-pack of Miller Lites to our house, and we now have a bunch of excess Miller Lites nestled in our kitchen. I am wondering what kinds of cocktail recipes might make 'em more interesting. Beermosas and Micheladas are my classics for brunch, but what cocktails made with a light bland lager do YOU love? Yes, YOU; I'm asking YOU, dear reader!
