  • Quick Tips for Thanksgiving Preparation


    Thanksgiving is just a day away! Are you prepared? If you tend to wait until the last minute to do things (hey, some people work best under stress, right?), here are five quick tips to help you prep for Thanksgiving tomorrow.

    1. Stock up on Ingredients

    Make a list and check it twice! Nothing is more stressful than prepping your Thanksgiving meal only to realize you’re short on ingredients. Double check that you have everything you need before you start cooking and your day will be significantly less stressful.

    2. Do a Trial Run

    Are you overly ambitious in the kitchen? While that new recipe looks great in the magazine, it might not be the best idea to try it the day of Thanksgiving. If you have time, test any Thanksgiving recipes you’re unfamiliar with before the big day. Cook a small portion, and see what you think!

    3. Prepare Your Table Settings the Night Before

    Set the table and centerpieces the night before. This includes a seating chart if you’re anticipating a lot of guests. This will give you one less thing to do Thanksgiving morning. Not to mention, it will be a welcome sight for your guests when they arrive.

    4. Pick up a Couple Newspapers

    Go out early and secure several copies of the Thanksgiving Day newspaper. This will provide plenty of leisurely reading for your guests, and it will also let people prepare for all of that holiday shopping that starts Friday morning!

    5. Have Containers Ready for Leftovers

    Make a plan for leftovers before all that food is piled in the kitchen Thanksgiving evening. Set out plenty of plastic containers the night before. Have the containers already labeled, and make sure you have space for all of them in your fridge.
