Like most people, we’ll be closing the shop and heading home to our own kitchens to prepare a big holiday meal for our families, or maybe we’re heading to someone else’s kitchen, nibbling on snacks and watching football while someone else slaves in the kitchen. Whatever the holiday season has in store for you, you can almost be certain that the kitchen is going to play a major role. So, while we don’t have time to remodel our kitchen days before the holidays, we can warn you about common Thanksgiving and holiday mistakes that people make when it comes to prepping, cooking, and serving.
Holiday hours for The Kitchen Showcase in Denver:
Thanksgiving November 24th – 25th CLOSED
Christmas, December 23rd – 30th CLOSED
New Year’s, December 31st, 2016 – January 2nd, 2017 CLOSED
Holiday cooking mistakes
The three biggest mistakes that people make when cooking their holiday meals are:
- Not buying enough food – Mainly, not buying enough turkey or whatever protein you eat for the holidays.
- Not thawing your turkey – The larger the turkey (or other protein), the longer it needs to thaw. Thawing a turkey could take a few days in the refrigerator, so clear some space and get that turkey out of the freezer in good time to be ready for Thanksgiving.
- Not planning the prepping and the cooking – There are a lot of components that need to be planned meticulously so that everything is finished at the same time, or you could end up with cold gravy, an undercooked turkey, and an overcooked string bean casserole.
Remodel your kitchen in Denver
There is a lot to be thankful for over the holidays. We are thankful to have helped so many clients design and install their dream kitchen, along with being able to give back to our community whenever possible. We are also thankful to be able to take time away from work to enjoy with our friends and family for the holidays. However, as soon as the turkey has been digested and the eggnog has run out, we’ll be back at our Denver kitchen showroom to help you design a stylish, personal, and functional kitchen.
If cooking for the holidays made you realize that your kitchen needs an upgrade or a remodel, or you got some serious kitchen envy while visiting your favorite aunt for the holidays, our designers are here to help you make your kitchen dreams a reality.
