Thanksgiving is less than a week away. For the last few years, it has been myself & my small family; which requires me having to do most if not all of the cooking. Growing up, I used to spend Thanksgiving with my entire family…I have a very huge family – all I had to do was show up and look cute – just to sit in the living room lol. Now that I am older, I have my own family and we have our own traditions. As each year comes and goes, I realize that planning & executing Thanksgiving dinner has become easier for me. And it's because I am a ‘write it down & check it off the list’ kinda person. I work best with a system! So, here I was looking at my list today, in preparation for the big feast.. and it hit me...Preparing and executing my second favorite holiday has become easier for me because of my system. I want to help you take the pressure off of yourself. The holidays are suppose to be enjoyable. If you’re the one that does most of the preparation and cooking, then it is easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed. I have used this checklist for the last 3 years, and it gets better overtime…I get better overtime. I've shared this with OG Dashers in the past and we all swear by this list..it is tried and true and loved by many okurrrr!
