Is Christmas dinner down the drain? I have had it sitting out on the counter for the last 3 hours and now we have it in a cooler filled with cold water.....
Right now it's 11:20pm and we will be eating, or were planning on it, at 3pm....is all lost? Do you think it will defrost in time? What else can I do? If all else fails, we do have a ham that we could use for back up but we didn't want to use that for tomorrow if at all possible.
I won't be stuffing this one.....give me the cold, hard facts (no pun intended)!
According to this website, it will take about 12 hours to defrost and 5 hours to cook. So, if you started defrosting it tonight at 8, then it should be ready to start preparing by 8 am. As long as you have it in the oven by 10 am, you should be good.
