I cannot believe there are only 6 weeks until Thanksgiving! Wasn’t it just June?? Man, I don’t know about you, but our summer flew by. Since the weather has cooled down, I’ve been in full-on planning mode. Orchards! Pumpkin carving! Caramel apple dipping! Thanksgiving!
Wait . . . what?
Yes, my dear friends, it’s time to start thinking about how we’ll handle Thanksgiving this year. And yes, I said handle, but don’t worry, I’ve got you covered!
What if you could actually enjoy this Thanksgiving with everyone else? Instead of fussing, cooking, and cleaning while you’ve got company? This year, relax! This Make Ahead Thanksgiving Guide will have you set and ready for the big day.
Let me tell you a story . . .
For many years now, I have hosted Thanksgiving in my home for 30+ people. The number of people grows a little each year as family members get married, have babies, and invite friends, and to be totally honest, I spent several of those years worrying, fussing, cooking, and cleaning while people were here, instead of living in the moment and enjoying the time. Thankfully, I have learned from my mistakes.
Having big family get-togethers can be a lot, but they don’t have to be stressful! I have found that planning ahead saves me so much time and stress as the day approaches, and I’m actually able to enjoy the holidays.
This Thanksgiving Guide is a culmination of all I have learned over the years.
