10 Day Countdown To Turkey Day — What You Need To Do Now!

Day 1 – Decide fresh or frozen and order your turkey.

Day 2 – Start planning the menu and create your guest list.

Day 3 – Prepare your grocery list and don’t forget to stock up on staples-paper goods, candies, beverages, inexpensive toys to entertain kids.

Day 4 – Check your linens for visible stains and clean (or buy new) if necessary 

Day 5 – Check your spices, assess your cooking equipment and plan to buy or borrow what you need.

Day 6 – Clean the house thoroughly so you can focus on other projects. Put the oven through a self-cleaning cycle. Do a cobweb check by flicking on the lights or chandelier in the dining room.

Day 7 – Grocery shop.

Day 8 – Iron linens that need it and lay them out, if possible, so they don’t re-wrinkle. Set out your serving dishes and utensils and define their use with sticky notes (e.g., “Brussels sprouts here”).

Day 9 – Start thawing the bird in the refrigerator and chill white wine.

Day 10 – Begin prepping all of the sides, send someone out to buy ice and set the table.

You’ve made it to Thanksgiving Day, WooHoo! Time to stuff the turkey and get it roasting, make the potatoes and veggies, whip the cream and, transfer the bird to the platter, make the gravy, reheat sides if needed, serve, sit down and dig in — don’t forget to warm the pies after dinner is served.

    GREAT tips. I host Thanksgiving every year and I was just saying to my husband last night that I can hardly believe that it’s only a week and a half away! I feel like it really snuck up on me this year. I am heading out to buy my turkey today as a matter of fact – I want to get one before the pickins’ are too slim!!
