Meal Planning Meal Planning

I've been doing this for years

....and I still feel a tad bit nervous about getting today's Thanksgiving dinner on the table on time.  LOL

I've made my lists and checked them twice.

I made pies, fresh cranberry relish, gingerbread, etc. ahead of time.

I'm literally counting the minutes until I have to put the turkey in the oven.

I'm hoping the veggie sides will fit in the oven (even though they always have in the past.)

I hope I don't forget anything (even though I made all the lists and checked them twice.)

Sigh.

Anybody else going through this?

Every year I say I don't want to do this, LOL!  It has been MUCH easier since building this house...2 ovens & a 36" wide stove top!  PLUS our friends gave us their old fridge so now we have plenty of space too!

I'd LOVE to have two ovens!  I settled for a very large oven instead.  I can get the turkey roasting pan in it plus have room alongside and another shelf under it to bake more things.

Next year I may just order our Thanksgiving dinner all prepared and add some of my own sides.

 Oh yes! I done more Thanksgiving dinners than I can count, and the last couple of years they've been in my son's tiny kitchen, with him & my other son helping, and the dil's making the desserts beforehand, but I still worry, and almost forgot and left the cranberry sauce in the refrigerator. lol Good luck with everything!

I don't get really nervous the day of.  I make lists and check them well in advance.
