This was our Thanksgiving meal last year, my mom prepared most of it. Then, we brought sides such as Toni’s Sweet Potato Casserole, Cranberry Apples, Deviled Eggs, and Green Bean Casserole.
All of this food takes work to prepare and each year many of us stress over making our Thanksgiving meal perfect which then means some of us miss out on the real reason for Thanksgiving. I asked a question a few weeks back on Facebook about tips on preparing for Thanksgiving dinner to avoid stress.
I am going to share with you today several of the great tips I received. Hopefully these will help you as well to make your holiday as stress free as possible!
“I do everything I can the week of I even have a make ahead mashed potato recipie that all u have to do is warm it that day…” – Shannon P.
“Use your slow cooker (with slow cooker liners)! Mashed potatoes can be warmed in it, stuffing can bake in it and so can numerous casseroles.” -Sara K.
“My daughter and I like to bake our pies on Wednesday. I get the stuffing made and sometimes bake it also on Wednesday and just pop it in the oven after the turkey comes out and is resting.” –Life of a Foodie and Her Family
“1) Make a list of everything you’re going to make and the ingredients. Check off the list as you go. Try and go to the store on the weekdays in the afternoon when its less crowded..the weekends and after 4pm seem to be the most congested. 2) Things you can do night/day before: Prep veggies, stuffing, baking.” –The Little Ferraro Kitchen
“My biggest tip is to write down what you plan on making.” –Fantastical Sharing of Recipes
