Do you prep for Thanksgiving ahead of time or do you thrive on the chaos? I am admittedly a little of both – I enjoy the process but I like to relax and have fun with my guests too! Today I made the stuffing, potatoes, sweet potatoes and green bean casserole…the recipes I use can be found in my Thanksgiving notebook – it’s been a fabulous resource for me to organize this year. I have my menu, decoration ideas, recipes and more. I’m looking forward to using it for Christmas too!
All I have left to do is the jello salad, rolls and the turkey – 23 pounds this year! The pie will be from costco this year (I heard they are really good) and the cranberry sauce is coming…I can’t wait. Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite meal of the year – with the exception of a really good steak maybe – and I love the mess, the chaos, and best of all the fact that I get to start playing Christmas music the next day!
I hope you all have an amazing and joy filled holiday. Don’t forget to check out my last thanksgiving post with my FAVORITE turkey marinade!
