Thanksgiving is about being Thankful for Good Food, Good Friends and Family.
We hope the following tips and ideas will help you plan and enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving meal.
Basic Tips for All Hosting the Meal
Purchase non perishables items way ahead of time.
Have the meal in the evening instead of midday, if you need more prep time.
Prepare as much food ahead of time as possible.
Set the table early.
Create a drink station.
Additional Tips if you Enjoy Hosting but Like to Keep Cooking Simpler
If you can, cut down on the number of traditional items offered.
Buy rolls, cranberry sauce, pies and use packaged stuffing mix and prepared gravy.
If you Enjoy Hosting and Some Cooking, Take it Even a Step Further
Make it a Pot Luck or invite a small core group for the meal and include everyone for dessert.
Enjoy Gathering with Friends and Family but Not So Much the Cooking
Purchase Pre-made Thanksgiving Meals.
Go Out to Eat.
