Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. Soon, kitchens will be full of food, family, and friends. Hosting dinner can be overwhelming at times, and if you’re not careful, you might forget a few smaller, yet just as important staple items needed for the feast.

Check Your Freezer. We’ve all been there. You are ready for dinner, the table is set, but you’ve run out of ice for the drinks. Dinner won’t have to wait if you purchase an extra bag in the days before, or if you’re able to, create your own and store it before the family is seated.

Check Your Cookware. Planning the meal can become a full-time job during this week, and to make sure you’re a success in the kitchen, be sure to do your pre-dinner prep. Check your cupboards and drawers to make sure you have what you need. If you’re cooking a turkey, you’ll likely need a roasting pan, and a meat thermometer. Also, check to make sure you have a potato masher, extra bowls for prep, and a carving knife.

Prep the Kitchen. In the lead up to Thursday, prep as many items as you can. Make the cranberry sauce ahead of time and either freeze it or cover it and keep in the fridge until dinner is ready. Other items like pies and rolls can be prepped in advance – just pop them in the oven to warm them before you serve.

By making a prep-list and checking it twice you’ll surely have a successful and enjoyable holiday meal.
