And of course, the food! Get ready to thaw your turkey. You wouldn’t want to waste much time especially if your turkey is still frozen. And if you want to bring your turkey, defrost it as early as possible. Don’t get left behind!

Don’t forget the gravy! Everyone waits for the drippings in your turkey for a much authentic flavor. Make and freeze it and you are good to go.

Have I mentioned the cranberry sauce? No one wants to miss that! Keep it cool in the refrigerator until the big day comes.

The mash potatoes can’t be crossed off on the list! Make it, freeze it, and put a lot of butter and cream. Every little detail counts to make it perfect.

If you want an easier recipe to make for Thanksgiving, then dinner rolls are on the first list! This is a perfect match for your bread and turkey.

How about all the pies? Whether you want a lemon meringue pie, pumpkin pie, pudding pie, or apple pie, all of these make a great part of the event. Prep that crunchy crust and serve it on the big table!

Aaaah! Food coma all the way! With all these preparations on Thanksgiving, we must not forget the true essence of the event. It’s all about giving back and being thankful for everything, especially for our friends and families. Thanksgiving has such genuine intentions. It is a time of the year where everyone can unite as one, be together, and have a selfless deed for everyone.
