“I hate my oven – I hate it!” theInto the Woods star admitted. “And you never hate your oven more than on Thanksgiving when it won’t cook the turkey.” The actress said her turkey cooked for about 11 hours, just long enough for it to be edible.
Things got so bad at the Streep household that she began looking for a Plan B to cook the side dishes. Live! co-host Michael Strahan said he “would have knocked on a neighbor’s door” for help, and that was exactly what the 65-year-old actress did.
Though the Goop founder wasn’t home, Streep personally emailed her friend to ask if she could use her kitchen, which includes “the best oven I have ever seen in my life.”
Mission accomplished. “The sides were fantastic!” Streep exclaimed.
