Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on Radio 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Thanksgiving Tech

 

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without new technology and Rick and Sully are talking "Turkey Day Tech" this week.
Technology Can Make Thanksgiving Better. It's that time of year again: turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, the presence of friends and family, and a reason to give thanks for all of our good fortune in the last year. And thanks for technology for Thanksgiving.

Have a listen:




1.  Thanksgiving with "Martha Stewart" - order your Thanksgiving meal online
www.marleyspoon.com

If you'd like some help this Thanksgiving from Martha Stewart – the queen of all things entertaining – she'll have all the ingredients and directions for your Thanksgiving meal delivered to your door in time for the big feast.

The Martha & Marley Spoon Thanksgiving meal kit includes all the fresh, quality ingredients you'll need to make a whole turkey with gravy, four sides and an easy dessert. Don't worry. The uncomplicated dishes can be cooked on Thanksgiving Day both by novice or experienced cooks.

The box includes step-by-step recipe cards – with photography for those visual learners – along with a helpful hourly preparation timeline, including which recipes can be prepped the day before.

So, what's in the box? The Thanksgiving Complete Feast box, which will feed 8-10 people, includes brown sugar glazed turkey and gravy, Big Martha's Mashed Potatoes, classic herbed stuffing with dried cherries, green beans with shallots and lemon. roasted root vegetables with brown butter, sage and almonds and a spiced apple oat crisp.

The Thanksgiving Complete Feast Box is $159.99. Or customers can choose Just The Sides for $99.99.

2.  The Ultimate Turkey Rack
$35
www.ultimateturkeyrack.com


The Ultimate Turkey Rack got its start when the inventor wanted to cook his bird upside down so that all the juices would baste into the breast of the turkey. But sitting upside down in a cooking pan would have the breast soak in the drippings and get soggy, and typical roasting racks would leave marks on the breast.
He wanted to be able to suspend the turkey while having an easy time to flip for that golden look, and so the Ultimate Turkey Rack was made. As I say, the design is extremely simple. You slide the skewer through the middle of the turkey, tie the legs on its rods with cooking twine, sit the contraption in a cooking pan and pop it in the oven. At about three quarters of the cooking time done, pull out of the oven and flip the turkey right side-up, then return into the oven to finish cooking.

The Ultimate Turkey Rack has been featured on the Rachael Ray Show, Cook's Illustrated and America's Test Kitchen.
 

3. Dry Top
www.drytopproducts.com

Store all those Thanksgiving leftovers with Dry Top.
Re-usable capsules that go in your food storage containers and make your perishable items last longer.
 

4. Traceable Turkeys
www.honeysucklewhite.com

Find out where the Honeysuckle White turkey you put into your shopping cart was raised.
Turkey buyers in select Texas markets will be able to either text or enter on the Honeysuckle White website the code found on the tag on the packaged bird to find out where it was raised and get information about the farm's location, view farm photos and read the farmer's message.




5. Thanksgiving Meal Planning Apps

Sure, Grandma put out a delicious spread for 15 people without relying on so much as a recipe. But in this digital day and age, doesn’t it make more sense to utilize technology when you’re prepping and cooking for three days straight? From shopping and planning list apps like Clear+ to recipe clearinghouses like Butterball Cookbook Plus to menu assistants like Snapguide to project management sorters like KitchenPad Timer to interactive scales and high-tech thermometers, the app store can be your best (and cheapest) friend as you prepare for Thursday’s feast.


6. Sound Oasis Stereo Bluetooth Sleep Sound Therapy System

It has all the answers. It’s a one-stop do-it-herself guide to auto maintenance, repairs, and roadside emergencies. Author Patrice Banks, a self-described “auto-airhead,” was like many of us: she didn’t know the first thing about her car. So Patrice took her engineering degree and became a certified automotive technician, giving auto-workshops to women and girls all across the Philadelphia area.


In Girls Auto Clinic Glove Box Guide she reassures readers that it doesn’t matter where you’re starting from, because it only takes a basic level of knowledge from someone who talks like you and thinks like you, for anyone to become a confident, responsible car owner.

Through her sheCANic workshops and newly opened all-female-operated garage—which includes a hair and nail salon!—Patrice is continuously working to change the auto industry by encouraging women to change the relationship they have with their cars, take away the confusion and mystery surrounding cars by teaching them what they need to know about how their cars work, and what they need to do to keep them running smoothly.
