If you think Thanksgiving is a single, lavish meal, you're wrong. It's a whole day filled with eating and celebrating. If you have two wooden spoons, chances are you'll need one or two more. If you have one oven mitt, you'll be burned and crying before the day is out if you're cooking a turkey in the oven. Before the big day, check your tools, utensils and other miscellaneous stuff to make sure you have enough of what you need for the day. Even if you have a great dishwasher, you probably won't want to run it with less than a full load, so make life easier by having backup gadgets and tools. Here are some likely candidates:

  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • slotted spoons
  • ladles
  • strainers
  • cutting boards
  • cookie sheets
  • pie tins
  • mixing bowls
