How do you get ready for Thanksgiving
First extra clean my house, make sure bathrooms are well supplied with items,
Clean out the refridgerator, so that there is plenty of room. Bake pies, get the groceries, And containers (like gladware) to have on hand for leftovers and take home items.
The day before, set the table, prepared food and get them ready to just pop in the oven, I purchased extra turkey parts and simmer them so I can make lots of gravey the day before, then when warming up the gravy the day of, I just add little of the dripping to the gravy and save the rest to make more gravy the next day instead. Always tasty. I get out all the serving tools and platters etc. In the morning pop the turkey in the oven and then other items, cook and mash potatoes and eat. It all goes well and stress free.
One year set it up as buffet style, worked out great, especially for clean up, and no one having to pass dishes around, only down fall - people get up and down to get 2nds.
Enjoy everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your friends and family joining you on this day.
One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching
