Grove at Ames | Making Thanksgiving Work In Your One Oven Apartment

Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and maybe this year you are hosting Thanksgiving in your Grove Ames apartment. Whether you are hosting it with a group of friends, family, or an intimant day with your partner, here are some tips on making it work in your one oven apartment:

  1. Bake all your pies and dessert the day before
  2. Find multiple side that can bake at the same temperature - or bake everythign at the middle temperature and monitor closely
  3. Find dishes that dont need the oven...crockpots, stove tops, no baking at all even...people might want a salad
  4. Reheat while the turkey rests - perfect time to cook biscuits or if you premade dishes time to reheat for that 30 minutes while the turkey rests
  5. If you absolutely need that second oven...make friends with your neighbors who are going out of town
