Thanksgiving is coming up, and if you’re the one doing most of the cooking, especially if you’re hosting a big family, you may be getting overwhelmed already!
I had previously heard of the Jennie-O Oven Ready Whole Turkey, an easy freezer-to-oven option for preparing a Thanksgiving-worthy turkey for your family. A friend said that last year she tried it and that it was super easy and turned out great! So when Jennie-O contacted me recently about sharing info about their Oven Ready Whole Turkey, I thought sure, and what better way than to share a $3 off coupon and give away a free whole turkey to one reader!
For busy women (and men!) assigned the task of preparing the Thanksgiving turkey, especially those who are newly married, first-time hosts, juggling work and home, hosting extended family, or have small children tugging at their apron strings, there is a delicious and easy alternative. is a foolproof shortcut that takes turkey fromFreezer to Oven to Perfect!™
Here’s all you do with a JENNIE-O® OVEN READY™ Whole Turkey:
Step 1: Remove the outer wrapping.
Step 2: Place the frozen turkey in a pan in the oven.
Step 3: Roast, cut and serve.
For busy women (and men!), especially those who are newly married, first-time hosts, juggling work and home (especially those working in retail!), hosting extended family, or have small children tugging at their apron strings (like me!), this is a great alternative to the traditional process of thawing, cleaning and seasoning a turkey, which can be time-consuming and messy.
A recent study,conducted by Harris Interactive, showed nearly 1/3 of Thanksgiving hosts spend 2 hours or fewer socializing with guests on the big day (is that even enough time to eat?). Furthermore, 27% devote 8 hours or more just to cooking.
Here’s an Infographic that gives a snapshot of many families’ time-stressed holiday preparation:

We’re having family here for Thanksgiving including an aunt and uncle who just lost their daughter last month unexpectedly. We already purchased a smaller turkey but because of the stress our family has been under I took it upon myself to invite more family to our home so they wouldn’t have to cook. An additional turkey would help a lot. Thanks so much for the giveaway!
