Wow, Thanksgiving is zooming up fast!
In order to save your sanity a little, you’ll want to have a lot of your prep work done ahead of time.
Here’s what you can get done now – Wine is optional…:)
_____ Finish up major housecleaning and laundry. Have house prepared for possible overnight guests. You never know.
_____ Touch base with people to find out how many are actually coming.
_____ Assign them each something to bring. Even if it’s pop, wine, napkins, can of whipped cream, coffee, whatever. Every little bit helps. Just make sure that you can count on the person you’ve assigned it to.
_____ Finalize your menu. Make 2 shopping lists – one for non perishables, one for fresh stuff.
_____ Buy non perishable stuff, canned goods, spices, napkins, foil, foil pan, wine etc. Stuff that can be bought ahead of time.
_____ Order any other special order stuff. Desserts, etc.
_____ Do you have enough silverware? Drinking glasses? Chairs? Get what you need now.
_____ Get all of the good dishes and glass-wear washed.
