Headlines Oct 6: HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEKEND! Canadians to spend more on Thanksgiving dinner this year as food inflation hits record levels. Food has never been more expensive. Last year, the price of a kg of fresh turkey was about $6.59, or $42.84 for a 6.5kg bird, according to the Agri-Food Analytics Lab. This year the average cost is closer to $9 per kg, almost $20 more per bird.

-Daylight saving time 2023 will come to an end on Nov. 5, so consider this a sign and set an alert so you don’t forget to adjust your clock back one hour when the time comes. Canadians in most time zones can “fall back” on Saturday, Nov. 4 this year before they head to bed, as the clocks roll back in the wee morning hours of Nov. 5 while most people are sleeping.

-Wheat Kings host Calgary Saturday at 7pm.



IMPORTANT! Defrost your turkey OVERNIGHT in the Fridge, NOT THE SINK.

-Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).
-If stuffing the turkey, do so while the oven is preheating. Spoon stuffing lightly into turkey instead of packing firmly because stuffing expands while cooking. (Allow ½ cup (125 ml) of stuffing per pound (500 g) of turkey.)
-Place turkey breast-up on a rack in a shallow roasting pan.
-Roast uncovered, or loosely covered with foil. If you choose to baste your turkey, limit the number of times you open and close your oven (once per hour is sufficient).
-Turkey is cooked when the meat thermometer reads 170°F (77°C) for an unstuffed turkey, or 180°F (82°C) for a stuffed turkey and the juices run clear. Insert meat thermometer in the thickest part of the inner thigh, but not touching the bone.
-When roasting, any stuffing placed in the cavity of the bird should read and internal temperature of at least 165°F (74°C).
-Remove the turkey from the oven when cooking is completed and let stand 20 minutes to allow the juices to set.
