Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away and although every year the meal is expected, the planning of your dinner can sometimes be stressful and unpredicted. To calm your nerves here are a few simple steps to help your Thanksgiving meal go as smoothly as possible.

Step 1: Plan ahead!

Now is the perfect time to plan your Thanksgiving. Create a to-do list and prioritize from there. If you are expecting a large crowd of friends and family ask about food allergies or any other food preferences. I suggest creating a cooking list of meals that can be made ahead of time, those that can be frozen, and some that should be cooked the day of. Don’t forget about delegating! It’s okay to ask for help and it will give you more kitchen space and time.

Step 2: Timing is Everything!

After you have your to-do list, you now have a good idea of what and when you need to cook certain dishes. I recommend shopping for non-perishables about a week ahead, and perishables should be bought a day or two before the big day. While on the topic of timing, cooking the turkey is the most time-sensitive dish of the day. Begin to thaw your turkey a few days before and have several hours dedicated to prepping it.

Step 3: Table Settings

Whether you are serving the meal buffet style or have specific table settings, make sure there are enough utensils, glasses, and plates for the guests. If you are feeling creative I suggest checking out some fun ideas on Good Housekeeping http://bit.ly/1xRyoy8.

Step 4: Be Thankful!

You have created a beautiful Thanksgiving meal. Now is time to relax and enjoy the food, family, and friends!
