Thanksgiving Eve: What you should be prepping 1 day out
We are one day away from the big Turkey day! Do you have everything ready to go? Are you frantically running around wondering what needs to be done today? Here’s a few things you should be prepping one day out from Thanksgiving!
-Today is the day to start making any sides that will reheat well, like casseroles.
-Start chopping and prepping for garnishes, toppings, salad greens and stuffing ingredients.
-If your stuffing recipe calls for stale bread, cut the bread now and set the cubes on a baking sheet to dry out.
-You can also bake your pies, so they have time to cool overnight before serving.
-Finish all your baking and store it in the fridge or on the counter over night
-Set the table
-Complete light housecleaning
What other tips and tricks do you use to prep the day before thanksgiving?
We are 1 week away from Thanksgiving. Hopefully your guest list is finalized, and your menu has been planned. But what should you be prepping for one week before the big day? Here are a few tips to make sure you are on the right track to a stress-free day!
Pick Up Your Turkey
If you’ve ordered a turkey, now is the time to pick it up so you can be prepped to defrost it. If you haven’t planned for your turkey yet, purchase a frozen bird today so it will be able to defrost properly in the fridge.
Shop for Non-Perishables
Divide up your shopping list into perishables and non-perishables and get the latter out of the way now. Non-perishables include equipment, decor, paper goods and cleaning supplies – but could also include baking ingredients like flour, sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, canned pumpkin and cranberries. Wait until the day before Thanksgiving to buy fresh vegetables, seafood and bread.
Prepare a Cooking Schedule
Being organized is the key to keeping stress at a minimum on turkey day. Review your recipes and create a day-by-day schedule for the week leading up to Thanksgiving as well as a day-of plan.
