Thanksgiving is a time for celebrating the warmth and togetherness of family. It’s also a time to indulge ourselves in carbs, turkey, and sugary desserts. But if you’re the one responsible for hosting the gathering and providing the fare for said indulging, it can be a bit of a stressful time, too. Fortunately, Food.com collected some awesome tips for hosting Thanksgiving, and we’ve summarized them here for you.
- “Plan your menu.” Don’t wait until the last second. Like with anything, meals require certain ingredients, and you want to make sure you have everything you need to make the meals that you want to make.
- “Do a gravy practice run.” Gravy can be hard to master. So, a couple weeks before the big day, try it out with a small chicken dinner. But better make sure you have a jar of it on-hand just in case you mess up come Thanksgiving Day!
- “Celebrate store-bought.” Don’t think that for your meal to be successful everything has to be made my scratch. Pick and choose your battles. Decide which dishes you would like to be your own and otherwise, don’t be afraid to use store-bought dishes.
We here at Tom Naquin Chevrolet would like to wish you a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving!
