New Ideas for Thanksgiving Dinner

Nov 11, 2016, 14:49 PM by Krista Olson

With Thanksgiving right around the corner…you are probably already planning for the meal, whether you’re just bringing a dish or hosting the family.  It’s a fun time to gather, enjoy friends and family and be thankful for all the good in our lives.

Thanksgiving can also be stressful – you know feeling – why isn’t anyone eating my squash? No one complemented my pumpkin pie?  Is the house ready for guests?

Maybe this year Thanksgiving dinner will be a bit less stressful. Here are a couple ideas for you to consider

  • Each family has their own thanksgiving traditions, so one way to reduce stress is to honor your family traditions and make the traditional foods guests expected.Then add a new dish or two you feel has the potential to be a hit.

  • Another stress buster for me is to write everything down. First, what dishes will I prepare, then which recipes will I use, followed by the required ingredients and the steps needed to make it happen.As I work through my list I check off what has been completed, which feels really good.That’s my game plan.Just like the Packers, I stick to my game plan.

Hopefully “my” game plan works out a bit better than the Packers has lately.  Either way, I’ll let you know!

Here are some great websites to visit for new recipes and in-depth meal planning advice – Have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
