Every year Thanksgiving Dinner is at my house. My family expects everything to be the same year after year, it’s tradition! By now I have this whole meal down pat; the menu, shopping list, and recipes are etched in my brain.
Each year I add a couple of new items to my menu, usually appetizers and desserts. I figure as long as I don’t mess with the classic menu items my family won’t rebel. This year I’m trying out 3 appetizers and 2 desserts, maybe some of them will make return appearances next year.
Even tho I can prepare this holiday meal in my sleep I still plan the meal as I would any other event I host. The key to a successful event is planning, in my world this means lists. I make a menu, a shopping list, and a timeline. This helps me budget my time and helps keep the holidays stress free.
Here is this year’s Thanksgiving menu. Links to recipes are also given. Click here for printable menu!
