Getting Holiday Ready: Last Minute To-Do's
The clock is ticking! Santa has made his list, and he's checking it twice, and now it's time for you to do the same. So tackle these last-minute to-do's today, so you'll be ready for the holiday.
If your holiday entree requires thawing, calculate the thawing time and put your entree in the fridge at the appropriate time. There's nothing worse than waking on Christmas morning and realizing you forgot to thaw the turkey!
Jot down a list of your Christmas menu, and each ingredient required to prepare these items; double-check the list against your pantry and refrigerator to ensure you have what you need—missing something? Now's the perfect time to run to the store to grab it :) Don't forget the butter - you "butter" believe you'll need it for at least one dish!
Speaking of butter... kitchen F.O.G. (Fats, Oils, and Grease) typically increases during the holidays with deliciouscomfort foods abound. Here's a friendly reminder that you should NEVER pour Fats, Oils, or Grease (Butter, salad dressings, gravies, oils, grease from bacon, ham, etc) down the drain, as this can cause blockages and potentially costly plumbing repairs. Be sure to load Range Kleen's Fat Trapper: Trap the Grease canister with a new Fat Trapper replacement bag to avoid an expensive plumbing disaster over the holidays!
Take out the kitchen trash, give your bathrooms a quick spruce up and prepare any side dishes that you can make ahead tonight!
Wishing you a Merry Christmas from everyone at Team Range Kleen!
