Happy Thanksgiving Friends and Family
Thinking of the best way to say happy thanksgiving? Or planning on what to share with your friends and family on this day? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Today is one of the most important food holidays for the majority of Americans. It is a time when families and friends gather together over a feast that typically consists of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, yams and so much more. And while we love celebrating this day with our loved ones, it can also be a bit stressful. You have to think about what you are going to cook, how you will prepare everything and all those small details that go into making this meal delicious. From drinks to desserts, here are some ideas on how you can thanksgiving like never before.
Try something new
Before you even start planning for your meal, you can find a way to make this a truly special event. One way to do this is to try out some new recipes that you’ve never attempted before. This not only adds some fun to the process but also gets your creative juices flowing. Plus, if you make a mistake during the baking process, you can always find a way to use them as a side dish. You’ll be thankful that you decided to make the switch.
It’s so important to plan ahead while you are hosting a big event like this. One way to make sure that everything goes smoothly is to create a to-do list. This will help you stay on track and make sure that you complete everything before the big day. You can also utilize tools like grocery list apps that can save you time and help you stay organized. Another great way to stay ahead is to do things in batches. For example, it might make more sense to bake the potatoes the day before, rather than on the same day as the turkey. This way, you can have fewer things to worry about on such a busy day. It will also allow you to enjoy the rest of the meal and spend more time with your loved ones.
Eat dinner early
If your family and friends are coming over at a time where they would normally be ending their Thanksgiving meal, why not eat ahead of time? This will give you more time to enjoy the rest of your day and not feel rushed to clean up. Plus, you can make the leftovers last the whole week after. This will also give you plenty of time to take care of any last minute cleaning and cooking that needs to be done.
Host an overnight event
If you want to bring some new energy to the table with your friends, consider hosting an overnight event. This can be anything from a slumber party, to a board game night. This can help bring a new spin to the traditional Thanksgiving celebration. It can also be a great way to connect with your loved ones and get to know them a little better.
Serve a coffee buffet
This is a great way to serve refreshments for your guests during their visit. You can also add in some spiced cider, hot chocolate or hot toddies for a grown-up twist. This is a great way to give everyone a pick-me-up between meals. You can also make sure to have plenty of coffee mugs on hand so that everyone can take some home with them.
Go all out with dessert
You can rule the dessert table at your thanksgiving by serving up your favorite sweets. Just make sure to get them out early enough so that they have time to cool down. This is a great way to end the meal and can be a way for you to show off your baking skills. You can also help yourself out by baking a few desserts the day before so that you have less to worry about on the big day.
Don’t forget the drinks
Last but not least, don’t forget to serve some drinks at your table. There are endless options that you can serve, but some of our favourites include coffee, hot cider, toddies and spiked hot chocolate. You can also set out some water and juice for the kids at the table and make sure they stay hydrated throughout the meal. For many, Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for the people in your life. It’s also a great chance to try out some new recipes and test out your baking skills. Whether you decide to go traditional or shake things up a bit, this holiday is sure to be one to remember! Whether you’re hosting a big gathering or celebrating with just a few people, these tips will come in handy. They’ll help you prepare for the day and make sure that everyone has a great time!
