Give Thanks for What You've Got
In these difficult times, it might feel like it takes too much time, effort and money to host a big Thanksgiving feast. But if you keep in mind what the holiday is really about—gathering family and friends around the table to show gratitude for what we do have—you'll realize that you don't have to break the bank for Thanksgiving dinner. Let Kikkoman help you prepare a delicious and memorable Thanksgiving that won't blow your budget.
- Plan for leftovers. Spending a few dollars now for a larger turkey will save you money down the road, when you turn the leftovers into sandwiches for your kids' lunchboxes and casseroles or soups to freeze for future meals. Hearty soups like Winter White Bean only get better with the addition of diced turkey—and a splash of Kikkoman Roasted Garlic Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce.
- Get the most out of your turkey by making broth out of the carcass. Simmer it with some carrots, celery and onions and you'll have a great base for soups and stews throughout the winter. Divide the broth into containers of a convenient size and freeze, making sure to leave enough space for the liquid to expand when frozen.
- Make sure your refrigerator freezing compartment can maintain a temperature of O°F. Keep a thermometer in the freezer and check it frequently. For best quality, be sure to use leftovers within a month or two of freezing. It's still safe to eat food after that time frame, but it won't taste as good!
