Thanksgiving Dinner Checklist

Let’s talk about my favorite holiday! As most grocery and department stores go directly from Halloween to Christmas, I’m over here wondering where Thanksgiving went. The food is always a huge highlight to Thanksgiving but I love the family gathering and gratitude for each other the most. For me, Thanksgiving focuses mainly on family. Christmas does too but a lot of times the gift giving can be distracting. Thanksgiving is all about gratitude and giving thanks for what you already have in your life.

Thanksgiving Dinner Checklist

Having a Thanksgiving Dinner checklist is a saver on time when it comes to Turkey Day! Keeping things organized and planned is a big deal, when you have multiple things cooking at once, plus having company over.

I try to get the majority of my grocery shopping done before everyone flocks to the store, the week of Thanksgiving. Hopefully already having your food checklist will help you keep your day less stressful in remembering what you needed to buy and make.

If you decide that a whole Thanksgiving Day dinner is too much, maybe plan on doing a potluck! Potlucks are great for large or small family gatherings. Write people names next to the food they plan on bringing to make your hosting duties a little bit lighter.

I have only included the Traditional Thanksgiving dinner but I would love to see in the comments, any family favorites that aren’t so traditional.

Happy Thanksgiving! Have a blessed, full, and happy day. ???
