Thanksgiving Menu and Prep Tips

Thanksgiving is one my favorite Holidays! As a home cook, it is also one of the busiest and requires preparation and organization.

Here's my current Thanksgiving Menu

Roasted turkey

Mashed Potatoes and Gravy


Candied Yams

Mustard/Turnip Greens

Macaroni and Cheese


Cranberry Sauce

For Dessert...

Sweet Potato Pie

Bread Pudding

My tips for a successful Thanksgiving!

  1. Plan your menu in advance! This is one of the most obvious but planning in advance = less stress the day before and of Thanksgiving.

  2. Identify which sides and desserts can be made the day in advance. I typically make the pecan and sweet potato pie in advance. Also, I prep the macaroni and cheese the day before.

  3. Time the turkey with your optimal dinner time. The turkey is the 'star' of the menu, so be sure you time it to match your desired meal time.

  4. Enjoy!
