Every year, we tend to make the same New Year’s resolutions: lose weight, read more, etc. So this year, why not switch it up – and do something nice for your car?
Here are a few New Year’s resolutions for your car to inspire:
- Purchase a quality tire pressure gauge, memorize the ideal tire pressure for your tires, and regularly inspect your tires/inflate them as necessary.
- Keep your car clean this year – both inside and out – by keeping a written “car cleaning” log in the glove compartment.
- This year, don’t idle your car when the weather is cold to “warm it up.” This wastes gasoline, damages your vehicle, and isn’t necessary.
- Get all of your oil changes on time, and keep a sharp eye on other fluids, such as coolant and antifreeze, as well.
- Lastly – be safe, and stop texting and driving once and for all.

For some families the way you cook your Thanksgiving turkey is just as important as the holiday itself. If your aunt insists on the standard roasted turkey that is constantly basted, yet it always comes out dry, see if you can convince your family to take over the turkey for this one year. Then, you can try one of these great alternative ways to cook a Thanksgiving turkey. Tell you family that if they don’t love it, they can go back to their old ways next year.
- Brined. This is the preferred method for cooking celebrity Alton Brown. It promises a moist and flavorful turkey that won’t disappoint. And, you’ll still get that classic turkey-on-a-platter look. Just make sure you have a large container (like a new 5-gallon bucket) to hold the entire turkey plus the brine.
- Spatchcocked. With this method, you’ll probably end up feeling like a butcher, but it delivers an evenly-cooked turkey, which is key to not having one that is dried out. This detailed video will have you well on your way to a perfectly-cooked Thanksgiving turkey.
- Turducken. For something that will surprise everyone, stuff a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey. This poultry masterpiece, if done correctly, will forever hand you the crown of Thanksgiving queen or king.
