Brazilian's last minute doubts on a surprise Thanksgiving dinner.
My mom and I are throwing a surprise Thanksgiving dinner to a dear friend who lived in NY for 30 years.We went with a traditional menu,so not being those traditions OUR traditions,we have some last minute doubts:1)How long will it take to defrost an 8 pounds turkey? 2)We're planning to start roasting the bird 3 to 4 hours before guests arrive.Is that time enough? 3)What is the best way to serve a pumpkin pie...warm,room temperature or cold? 4)Could not find cranberries in Brazil...will raspberries do instead?
