Are You Hosting Thanksgiving?

24 Oct

Although Halloween has not yet passed, now is the time to think of Thanksgiving — especially if you are hosting the holiday.

Modern Family Thanksgiving

Plan your menu now including appetizers, main course (turkey, of course!), dessert and beverages.   Purchase any non-perishables early since many of these meal items are on sale now.  Cranberries can be bought and frozen and butternut squash can be stored in a cool place.  Beer, wine and soda can also be purchased in advance.

Thanksgiving Day Menu

If you are serving dinner for a crowd, designate which food items are being contributed by your dinner guests.  Ask them to bring items that require advanced preparation so they will prepare them before arriving at your house.  This will free up more kitchen space and time for you!

Finally, if you are having overnight guest, now is the time to prepare the guest room.  Change the sheets, dust and find some pretty towels.

Most importantly, don’t sweat the small stuff and have a happy Thanksgiving!

May your Thanksgiving be

Are you hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year?  What preparations can you possibly do in advance to prepare yourself so you can enjoy the day and not be as stressed out?

      You can never be too prepared for the chaos that the Holidays tend to bring… Good luck! 🙂
