Fail #7: Ignoring Oven Issues
"The control panel on our oven started acting up before Thanksgiving, but I didn't worry about it. On Thanksgiving Day, while the turkey was roasting in the oven, the panel started blinking and then shot up super high and the oven door locked shut. We had to kill the circuit breaker and wait until the oven cooled down to unlock it. Dinner was a little late that year!" -Diane DeeDee
Our Tip: Make sure your oven is in working order. Also, have plenty of appetizers on the big day — it makes waiting for dinner easier!
