It’s Thanksgiving week, y’all. I love this time of year, not just because of all the extra cooking and baking I get to do. There is something magical about this short season, where we can choose to spend more time focusing on all the things we’re thankful for.
This will be the third Thanksgiving where I’m putting on my big girl hat and cooking up a semi-traditional meal for our little family. One thing I appreciate is that I don’t have to worry about hosting a large group or impressing others, except my dear husband. He’s super easy to please, thankfully. Though, I wouldn’t mind it if I had to do Thanksgiving for a big group. Anyone want to come over?
All that aside, there are definitely some practical things I’ve picked up along the way that make the actual Thanksgiving Day a lot less stressful and running smoothly. I’m certainly no expert and these things might work perfectly for us, but like everything else in life you will find what works best for you. Whether you’re planning for 2 or 20, I strongly believe that all these practical tips will be helpful to make your Thanksgiving meal a success!
