Alright kids.. I’m a little late getting started on the Thanksgiving meal planning, so here I am playing catch up. I’ve been so excited about Christmastime, that I neglected planning the important day of giving thanks. Of course we should be giving thanks every day, but we can’t have a gargantuan feast all the time, so I gotta do this right! I’m making a list, checking it twice..
Here is my outline of the next few days of mayhem:
- Create menu
- Make room (clean out) fridge
- Clean oven
- Grocery Shop
- Create table centerpiece
- Print out Thanksgiving coloring pages for the sparkletots here and here
- Prepare dishes that can be made ahead or frozen for a couple days
- Prepare mashed potatoes
- Prepare dessert
Thank goodness I have a self-cleaning oven, otherwise that step may never get done. Now only if I had a self-cleaning fridge, or kitchen for that matter. Sleep may need to be sacrificed a bit on Wednesday due to my work schedule, but alas, Thanksgiving must go on!! Am I missing anything?
Stay tuned to this station for my holiday menu…
