With Thanksgiving a week from today you’re probably getting ready to use that oven a whole lot next Thursday. While you’re cooking this year you might ask yourself what that extra drawer under the oven is really for?
Most people just use it to store pans, cookie sheets, pizza stone (that’s what’s in mine!) but it’s not actually meant for that purpose at all. It was ordinally designed by oven manufacturers as a “warming drawer” to keep food warm until you were ready to serve it. Which actually would be VERY useful for Thanksgiving now that I think about it. So clear out those muffin tins and clean that drawer for next week to keep your sides warm while the turkey cooks all day.
