Peeling Potatoes for Thanksgiving Dinner

No matter how you slice it, cooking Thanksgiving dinner is a lot of work. From the mashed potatoes to the sweet potato pie, each Thanksgiving dish you make requires some form of prep and can make for a long and hectic day of cooking. Instead, why not spread your meal prep over a couple of days to give yourself a stress-free holiday.

Thanksgiving Dinner Menu Plan

When you have a Thanksgiving dinner menu, cooking becomes a whole lot easier. Decide how many dishes you want to prepare, and how big each dish will need to be to accommodate all of your guests. Once the dishes have been established, it’s time to figure out what can be prepared ahead of the big day.

Prepping for Thanksgiving Dinner

A number of Thanksgiving dinner recipes can be made ahead of the actual day. Dessert is definitely a dish you want to make at least one day in advance – two is even better. That will give you the night before Thanksgiving to cut up vegetables, get your turkey thawed and the stuffing ingredients prepared. Here are a few quick tips:

  • Vegetables like potatoes can be peeled, cut and stored in water in the fridge until you’re ready to use them. Stir in a little lemon juice to prevent them from browning.
  • Chop your onions and celery for stuffing and store them in an airtight container. You can also cube your bread and store in a plastic bag overnight. Toss everything together first thing in the morning before putting your turkey in the oven.
  • If possible, choose an appetizer that doesn’t take a lot of prep or one that can be made in your crockpot. Butternut squash soup is a warm and satisfying first course that can be made the day before and reheated in the crockpot. Baked brie or a quick spinach salad are quick Thanksgiving appetizers that are also sure to be a big hit.

    I love these ceramic knives. I use them everyday and they are just as sharp as the day I purchased them.

    Thanksgiving is 1 of my favorite holidays, and every year I like to get into the mood-extend the holiday, when it were-by reading “Thanksgiving novels.” Of course, those stories are mostly about family, about coming together to heal old hurts and giving thanks for the gift of love. .
