We’ve all seen the people rushing into the grocery store on Thanksgiving morning in a desperate attempt to grab a turkey for dinner. Don’t be THAT person this year, and start planning your Thanksgiving feast in advance.
Here are some tips to help you plan the best Thanksgiving ever:
If you have an avid hunter in the family, consider hunting your own game for Thanksgiving (just remember to follow your local rules and regulations). It could be a great way to spend quality time with friends and family in the great outdoors. Montana Decoy Co carries a wide range of hunting decoys and gear to get you ready or you can simply buy a frozen turkey from your local supermarket.
When cooking your turkey, did you know you can cook it a day in advance? This is a great way to minimize the stress of coordinating cooking times for a dozen dishes. Just cook your bird the day before and reheat it in the oven on Thanksgiving at 375o for 45-60 minutes.
Don’t feel like cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year? Go to Omaha Steaks and order a custom, fully-cooked Thanksgiving turkey meal complete with classic freezer-to-oven sides and desserts to choose from.
If your cookware is getting old and chipped, it might be time to invest in a new set for your Thanksgiving dinner feast. We like 360 Cookware because it’s made right here in the US in West Bend, Wisconsin, and they don’t use any chemicals in their manufacturing process, yet you still get heirloom-quality cookware and bakeware with a beautiful mirrored finish.
Make a great impression on your guests with a formal table setting. Your table is one of the easiest things to do in advance (even days in advance if you want). Set out your freshly ironed holiday linens (tablecloth and cloth napkins) and set your flatware, dishes, and glasses in place.
Add personalized touches with crafted name cards and a beautiful fresh centerpiece made from a cornucopia of fresh branches and berries from outside.
Put your guests in the mood the second they walk through the door with a fabulously smelling home. Nothing says Fall or Thanksgiving like a home spelling of apple pie, pumpkin spice, or rustic pine. Light a candle or diffuser with your favorite fall and holiday scents.
You’ve likely got many family and traditional Thanksgiving recipes that your family love. We like to try one or two new recipes every year. Here are a few traditional family favorites to try this year:
Homemade cranberry sauce – for those who are done with Cran-in-a-can!
Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip – pairs well with toasted sourdough bread.
Sweet Potato Casserole – a crowd-pleasing classic with crunchy pecan topping.
Balsamic-Roasted Brussels Sprouts – you either love them or hate them!
Classic Roast Turkey – in case you don’t already have a family recipe for this./li>
Macaroni and cheese – for the kids, and the adults will like it too!
Pecan Pie – a trusted favorite in many households.
Apple Pie – top with vanilla bean ice cream and a swirl of caramel.
