Underestimating the Amount of Food Needed
If there’s one day you don’t want to send guests home hungry, it’s Thanksgiving. How big of a turkey should you buy? At least one pound per person. If you want to make sure you have plenty of leftovers, buy 1 1/2 pounds of poultry for each guest. You also want to have more sides than you think you need.
