Dakotas Corner 

Boating season is approaching its end and I have enjoyed my first season boating on Tims Ford Lake.  If you have not winterized your boat - now is the time to plan for doing so.  Also, the lake level will begin to drop - if you plan to remove your boat from the water, plan for that now, as well.  If you would like Sam Hatfield Realty to help with these endeavors, please call us at 931-968-0500.  As always, stop by the office to visit us and see me, Dakota!!

Thanksgiving Day Safety Tips

Thanksgiving is a holiday that brings friends and family together to share a good meal, conversation and laughter.  But Thanksgiving also comes with several health hazards, including an increased chance of fires, food poisoning and choking.  Take a few minutes to review these Thanksgiving Day safety tips, and enjoy the holiday without worry.

Fire

The U.S. Fire Administration reports that, on Thanksgiving Day, more than 4,000 fires occur. The average number of cooking fires doubles on the holiday. In addition to installing a fire detector in the kitchen, there are several easy ways to avoid fires:

  • Donít leave the kitchen while frying and grilling

  • Use a timer and do kitchen checks when simmering, baking, broiling and roasting

  •  If deep frying a turkey, keep the fryer outside, away from walls, fences and other structures

  •  Also keep the fryer away from moisture to avoid burns from steam and spattering oil

  • Keep pot holders and food wrappers 3 feet away from the stove or other hot surfaces

  •  Kids should stay 3 feet away too.

  •  Make sure handles of pots and pans are facing inward

  • Avoid loose clothes, especially those with long sleeves, while cooking

  • And make sure all candles and smoking materials are put out after the guests leave

Turkey

Eating undercooked turkey is another Thanksgiving health problem. If a turkey is thawed at a temperature above 40 degrees Fahrenheit, salmonella or other bacteria that cause food poisoning can grow.

1.     Safely cooking a turkey starts with correct defrosting. There are 3 methods for safe defrosting:

2.     The turkey can be thawed in the refrigerator Ė one day for every 5 lbs of bird

3.     The turkey can be submerged in water if it is in leak-proof packaging Ė 30 minutes for every pound. The     water should be changed every half hour.

4.     Itís also safe to defrost a turkey in the microwave. Remove any packaging and follow the manufacturerís instructions.

With all 3 methods itís important to cook the turkey immediately after thawing. Donít slow cook or partially cook the turkey, and check temperature with a thermometer, itís necessary to check the innermost part of the thigh and wing, and the thickest part of the breast. The turkey needs to be at least 165 degrees Fahrenheit (and the stuffing, too).

Let the turkey rest before carving. This gives the juices time to set.

Choking

The most common cause of choking is talking while eating. If a person is unable to cough, breathe or speak, the first thing to do is call 911. Next, the Red Cross recommends a technique called FIVE-and-FIVE for choking victims.

The first step is giving the choking victim five sharp blows on the back, using the heel of the hand. If obstruction is not dislodged by this move, the next step is to give the victim five quick, upward abdominal thrusts.

Some people run from the table when they start choking. Itís important to stay with other people so they can give assistance. If the victim is alone, he can give himself the five abdominal thrusts using his hand or by pressing his abdomen firmly against the back of the chair.

 Leftovers

Eating Thanksgiving leftovers that have been improperly stored can also lead to food poisoning. Leftovers need to be put away within 2 hours after serving the food. (This includes pumpkin pie.) They go in the refrigerator if they are going to be eaten within three days, otherwise they go in the freezer. Food should be stored in shallow containers. Meat should be removed from the bone before being put away.

Reheated leftovers should be cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Gravy should be brought to a vigorous boil.

 Pets

Thanksgiving brings health hazards to dogs and other pets as well as humans. Donít give turkey bones to pets. Turkey bones and other bird bones are hollow, which makes them likely to splinter. This can cause tears in an animalís esophagus, stomach or intestines.

Fatty holiday foods, like turkey skin and gravy, can contribute to pancreatitis. More pets are brought to vets for pancreatitis after their owners have had a party or holiday dinner.

Be careful about leaving chocolate candies out (or kids dropping candy on the floor). Chocolate can cause illness and even death when dogs ingest it. In addition, dogs shouldnít be fed grapes, raisins, onions, or alcohol or anything with caffeine. Itís also important to keep the string used to tie the turkey and other food wrappings out of reach of pets.

Dogs also tend to be very excited when there are lots of people in the house. When they are excited, they often eat too quickly, and this can lead to bloating, a very dangerous condition. Feed your dog before the guests arrive and donít let them be too active before or after eating.
