Thanksgiving Timeline Week 4


I love this song.

I love this song.

I love this song.

I love this song!

That’s what Shanti and I sounded like in the kitchen yesterday after discovering that creating a Prince station unlocks the magic that is Pandora.  The mix was a little bit eighties, and a whole lot of fun.  Think Father Figure.  This year I am thankful that Prince is so supremely talented that only the best songs get into his algorithem.

This is it, loves.  We’re in the homestretch.


The Weekend Before
The Big Clean, house and kitchen. Be sure to clear out your fridge so you have space for all the new groceries coming in.

Two Days Before

1. Buy remaining groceries

2. Buy ice

3. Set your table and pull your serving platters.  Use post-its to label each platter so you know where to plate each dish.

4. Set up your bar area

5. Make any do-ahead dishes according to your timeline, e.g. cranberry sauce, salad dressing, etc.

1 Day Before
Review your timeline and do your prepwork. It may include:

1. Brining your bird

2. Cubing bread for stuffing

3. Cleaning and prepping any veggies and herbs except apples and onions (they turn brown and get watery, respectively.)

4. Making pie.

Day Of

1. While you’re brewing your morning cup, measure and grind beans into a plastic bag for after dinner

2. Enjoy your coffee and cereal.  This is very important.

3. Preheat your oven, turn on some music- the Prince mix- and get cooking!
