Tips for hosting the big day!

Thanksgiving dinner can be overwhelming to say the least, but it doesn’t have to be! Make it a breeze with these clever ideas and tips.

  • Plan your menu! Figure out what’s on the menu and don’t be afraid to ask others to bring a dish.
  • Make ahead! If you can make a dish ahead of time do so.
  • Serve what you like to eat! If you aren’t big on traditional Thanksgiving foods don’t feel like you have to eat that. Thanksgiving isn’t about the food (although I love it) but really Thanksgiving is about being thankful for your family and friends. It doesn’t matter if you do that eating tacos, just enjoy time with each other.
  • Do store bought! If I can save minutes spent in the kitchen then I am game. Pick up an already made pie or you could even have the turkey made at a local restaurant.
  • Offer snacks! This will help keep your guest busy and occupied while you finish up the inevitable last minute things in the kitchen.
  • Occupy the kids! It never fails for the “is it done yet” question to come up. Plan a craft or two to keep the kiddos busy.
  • End on a good note! Send your guests home with these yummy squares for a tasty treat.
