'Tis the Season for DUIs TIPS TO KEEP THE ROADS SAFE THIS THANKSGIVING Much like Chelsea’s family tradition, many Americans will take to the road this Thanksgiving to visit relatives near and far. While these journeys can bring your family closer together for the holidays, it’s important to be extra careful while traveling this time of year. Not only will early snow and ice be a concern, but your fellow drivers may pose a serious threat. Tragically, Thanksgiving weekend has a higher rate of car accidents caused by drunk drivers than any other time of the year. Crashes involving inebriated drivers are more likely to cause severe injury or death than incidents where drivers are sober. Here are three steps you can take to make the roads a little safer this holiday season. Whether you’re hosting or traveling to Thanksgiving dinner, a little planning can make sure no one from your party gets behind the wheel while intoxicated. As a host, be prepared to give guests plenty of extra time to sober up (about an hour per glass of wine or can of beer). As a guest, you should always have 3 Types ofMedication Errors to Watch Out For PLAN AHEAD

The Most Underrated Thanksgiving Foods 4 DISHES YOUR TABLE NEEDS When you think of Thanksgiving food, the first dishes that pop into your mind are probably turkey, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole. They’re a part of nearly every Thanksgiving meal. And while these delicious foods are something you don’t want to skip, there are dishes your table is sorely missing — dishes that don’t get the respect they truly deserve. This Thanksgiving, why not take a look at a few other options? SOUP This is one dish that rarely hits the Thanksgiving table. But try a butternut squash or broccoli cheddar soup and you’ll be surprised just how “at home” it feels among the rest of your spread. It’s perfect to serve ahead of the main course, as the final touches are put on the turkey, or when the green bean casserole needs a few more minutes in the oven.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS These tiny greens often get overlooked during Thanksgiving, but with the right accompaniment, they can make for an extremely tasty and nutritious dish. For example, try roasting halved Brussels sprouts with dried cranberries and bacon, drizzled with a raspberry balsamic vinaigrette.

SAUSAGE Put a creative spin on your traditional Thanksgiving dishes and try using sausage in the stuffing. An Italian sausage, for instance, adds a kick of flavor to any stuffing, homemade or from the box. You can also experiment with other kinds of sausage to find the flavors that best complement your stuffing. Use a sweet sausage when you need something to pair with a stuffing that incorporates apples. CRANBERRY SAUCE This Thanksgiving staple rarely gets the attention it deserves. While it’s easy to buy a can of cranberry sauce, you do your guests a culinary disservice by going this route. Instead, make your own cranberry sauce. There are many recipes online, and all you need are some fresh or frozen cranberries, orange juice, and sugar to make the best cranberry sauce of your life.
