No TidBITS Issue on 19 November 2012

Send Article to a Friend

Next week is the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, so we won’t be publishing an email issue on 19 November 2012 as we get ready for family and food. Many of us will again be consulting the handy worksheets from our own Joe Kissell’s “Take Control of Thanksgiving Dinner” ebook for our dinner preparations — no one lays out what needs to be done better or more clearly than Joe. Plus, in a few days we’ll be pushing out a free minor update to the ebook, mostly to improve the EPUB version’s formatting for those following the recipes on an iPad in the kitchen.

Although the weekly email issue of TidBITS won’t appear next Monday, we’ll continue to publish to the TidBITS Web site. To keep up with everything we’re writing, you can check back at our site, use the free TidBITS News iOS app, or subscribe to our RSS feed, Twitter stream, or Facebook page. And look for the next email issue on 26 November 2012!

Check out the Take Control ebooks that expand on the topic in this article:

Joe Kissell trades his trackpad for a whisk and brings his knack for breaking complex topics into simple steps to the task of preparing a full-bore Thanksgiving dinner. With Joe's help and extensively tested recipes, cooking a complete Thanksgiving feast can be both delicious and stress-free!
