 Day 7 Last Minute Tips & Recipes


Welcome to the final day of our 7 Days to a Stress-free Thanksgiving series.  Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week already?  I hope you have been following our series and that our tips helped you be a little less stressed this Thanksgiving season.  Here are a few final tips.

  • Make sure you have checked your oven temperature and cleaned out the fridge (see our Day 1 Post).
  • By now, you may have purchased your pantry items.  Check to make sure you are not missing anything.
  • Review your fresh food grocery list
  • Verify your guest list and how many people you will be serving
  • Review your recipes.  Can anything be made ahead and frozen until right before Thanksgiving?
  • If there is something that you’d like to serve but just can’t do or don’t have time? There is no reason you can’t take a little help from the grocery store (pre-chopped veggies or a pie etc.)  Or if one of your guests loves to bake, and you hate it, ask them if they can bring a dessert.
  • Set your table the day before Thanksgiving.
  • Make sure the dishwasher is empty before your guests arrive.  It makes clean up easier!
  • Put on some music, pour a glass of wine…you got this!
