We can help you make your Thanksgiving dinner a lot easier!

If you’re making dinner for your family’s Thanksgiving, you’re probably starting to think about how you’re going to handle the meal on Thanksgiving. This morning, we shared some advice that can help make your Thanksgiving go smoothly. Maddy Sweitzer-Lammé of All Recipes says to think of Thanksgiving as a two-day holiday: use your Wednesday for the cooking, and Thursday for enjoying the food and your family and friends that helped make dinner with you.

There are many Thanksgiving dinner foods that you can make on Wednesday, including your stuffing, pies, and mashed potatoes and gravy. You can also decorate and set your table on Wednesday too! There are only two things that she say’s not to prepare: turkey (because it might dry out) and salad (it could be soggy). But, if you prepare ahead of time, you’ll have time Thursday to make a fresh turkey and salad!
