Its Monday. If you haven’t finished shopping it’s time.
You don’t want to be out shopping the night before Thanksgiving. I did that the first year that I became a full time working mom. We had to go to 2 stores to find a turkey. Then the one we found was a smoked turkey, (not our usual).
Make a list of all the dishes you need for Thanksgiving including breakfast. For our family, that is cinnamon rolls. After making a list of all the dishes you will need to make, compile all of the recipes. Write down each ingredient and the amounts to formulate a shopping list. I have this typed into the computer as my master holiday shopping list. I usually start shopping for the dry goods in late October spread out the cost. The week before Thanksgiving I purchase the fresh ingredients. This was done Saturday.s
Sunday, I cooked the pumpkin and made marshmallows. I have made assignments to each of my daughters, mother and mother in law. Wednesday I will come home and bake pies and make the dough for the cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls and put it in the refrigerator over night.
Next post I will break down the morning of Thanksgiving. Having this plan allows me time to spend time with my family just taking it easy.
