If you are anything like me, preparing a large Thanksgiving dinner for your entire family can be a very daunting task. Making sure you have something gluten free for your daughter and something vegan for your aunt can be overwhelming, and we won’t even mention the eyes of your mother-in-law using her bionic eyesight to find fault in any little thing. Ugh…I shudder just thinking about it.
This year I have decided that I would not stress over my holiday dinner. We will see how that goes closer to time, lol, but right now I feel pretty well in control. The most important thing on Thanksgiving Day is coming together as family and friends to give thanks for all the blessings throughout the year. That is always first and foremost in my mind, but coming a close second would be the Thanksgiving Day spread.
So it’s Thanksgiving is a mere week away and everything you want to cook is running through your mind, and if you are like me you worry that you are going to make green bean casserole and come dinner day you end up with four green bean casseroles and no mashed potatoes. Oh the travesty. Now as you may know, I love my lists. So I have created a Thanksgiving Day Menu checklist to make sure all the major food groups are covered.
This list will help you organize what will be served at your dinner with no overabundance of green bean casserole. All you have to do is call everyone that is coming and see what they are bringing and add it to your list. This way you can see what still might be needed to make your dinner complete. Below I have posted a picture of my checklist for you to use.
