We have all been there….Thanksgiving Disasters Stories you can relate to

Friends Thanksgiving Disaster Story - I wasn't supposed to put beef in the trifle!

Sure, you’re a great chef. You can pull off an amazing Thanksgiving dinner without a hitch, but let’s be honest, we all know it’s not always that way. That being said, we decided to share with you some of our own Thanksgiving disasters at home for a good laugh and a bit of holiday cheer. Enjoy!

Missing a key ingredient

When Shari arrived at her Uncles Thanksgiving dinner with her made-from-scratch Pumpkin Pie in hand, she had no idea how embarrassed she would be in just a few hours. As dinner came to an end, she was so excited to have everyone dig into her dessert. It looked flawless. Perfectly cut fall leaves made from pie crust lined the edge of pie. She watched closely as the first guest cut into the pie. Uh-oh, they couldn’t cut the crust. It was ROCK HARD! Mortified, Shari scoured her brain trying to figure out what when wrong. She didn’t cook it too long. It wasn’t burnt. Oh no… The BUTTER! She forgot the butter! Who knew such a simple ingredient would change a pie from edible to inedible with the cut of knife? Needless to say, Shari has never left out the butter from her crust since that day.

To eat, or not to eat the ham: that is the question…

Tammy had one job: bring the ham. She picked the biggest one. Found the best recipe. Watched and basted it for hours until it was perfectly browned with a decadent honey and brown sugar crust. Proud of her ham, she wrapped it up, and made her way to her parents’ house for Thanksgiving dinner. Prize-winning ham in hand, she made her way through the door of her parents’ house and boom! Ham went one way, Tammy went the other way. After she picked up herself, and the ham off of the floor, they decide to salvage what they could off the ham, and put it in the oven on high to kill the germs. That year, there was a lot of leftover ham.

Gone fishing

Sarah and her sister decided to prepare Thanksgiving dinner together for both of their families last year. When it came time to stuff the turkey, it took both sisters’ efforts to stuff and truss the large turkey. It wasn’t until after the turkey was stuffed and in the roaster, that Sarah’s sister realized the Band-Aid she was wearing on her finger was GONE! After staring at each other horrified, they decided to un-do the turkey, and fish through ALL of the stuffing to locate the band-aid. They couldn’t find it! It wasn’t until they dressed the turkey up for second time, and hoisted it into the oven that they discovered the illusive band-aid. There it was, hanging from the bottom of the roaster! Phew! That was a close one Sarah!
