  • How many people are you cooking for? If you keep it simple, it's really pretty easy...or at least not any harder than most other meals :) The trick is planning ahead. Lots of the dishes can be made in the 2 days before Thanksgiving, then reheated at dinner time. Mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, dinner rolls, turkey stock for gravy & dressing...all of these can be made ahead, as well as pies.
    Here is what we are having:
    Roasted dry brined turkey
    turkey gravy
    mashed yukon gold potatoes
    green beans with lemon & orange zest
    roasted asparagus & cauliflower
    cranberry sauce (canned for my brother, fresh for everyone else! lol)
    and of course, PIE! :)

  • Things that helped me on my first go was have everything that can be refridgerated and served chilled already done like a day ahead. Thaw your turkey a couple of days before Thanksgiving.
