How to Season a Turkey With Salt & Not Much Else

  How to Season a Turkey With Salt & Not Much Else There's nothing worse than bland turkey on Thanksgiving. There, we said it. The antidote to blandness? Salt, of course.

  Thanksgiving's More Expensive Than Ever—Now What? These days, it’s hard to go even an hour without hearing about supply chain issues, both in the United States and abroad. With shortages on everything from beauty products to toilet paper (again) to food, consumers are going to have to plan early and most likely spend more this holiday season. The Farm Bureau estimates that Thanksgiving 2021 will cost $46.90 for a group of 10, but to loosely quote our president, that’s a load of malarkey. AA typical Thanksgiving feast will likely feature at least a 12 to 14 lb. turkey, mashed potatoes, an assortment of vegetable side dishes, dinner rolls, a few kinds of pie, and most likely some good wine.

These videos show people escaping the flames by foot, car, and boat:

Thousands of people have had to be evacuated from their homes, and tourists were evacuated from beaches by boat, including private boats and yachts that pitched in to help.
