Thanksgiving preparations are underway, and you have LOTS of stuff to do. But before you get carried away, remember these three words of advice:

THAW...YOUR...TURKEY!

The cranberry sauce, potatoes, pies and casseroles can be put off until later. The turkey (usually) takes center stage, so you definitely need to start with that first. Check out some more Thanksgiving hints here.
