I’m hosting Thanksgiving for 8 on Thursday and this week is all about the prep. It’s not a difficult meal and I’ve done it many times but I really like having a game plan to spread out the tasks and to make sure I don’t forget anything.
This is my working document:
I’m generally a digital girl but for this process I really prefer to use the old fashioned paper and pencil routine. So far, I’m on track but the heavy lifting hasn’t really hit yet.
Wish me luck!
Love that a haircut and massage made your list!! I think I’m making pies (apple and pumpkin) and probably cranberry chutney. Not sure what else I need to do! Must check with the kids…
All the best Tgiving Prep JuJu heading your way!
You can do it! Good luck! XO

Having a plan is definitely my MO. You got this.
An apple pie on Sunday and Wednesday? More pie (and I see there are lots more) is always a good thing!
All the luck, Carole! but it looks like you’re well-prepared and shouldn’t need “luck” to pull it all off – Enjoy!!

Best of luck! You can do tis!!
When should I show up to help you eat all that pie? 😉 Looks like you’ve got a very manageable schedule there.
Good luck! You’ve more to do than I- we’ll be around 15…as I sit here with the vacuum on the floor in front of me. 😉
I usually do the same thing, Carole. It helps so much in keeping track of prep. However, I am busy looking for and buying a house for my brother, so this year’s prep has gone off the rails. I am sure my husband will eat whatever I cook, so I decided not to feel too anxious about it. Need to do that gravy prep!
You’ve got this!
