The thought of entertaining brings several thoughts to mind.

For some, Joy. For some, Excitement. For others, Utter Fear! All are understandable emotions.

Thanksgiving for me brings memories and thoughts of love, family, and friendship. We have spent Thanksgiving with our dear friends for years. Whether we celebrate in our parts of town or a little further North, we always have a blast. Every occasion brings yet another great story.

Life is too short to stress out about food or preparing it. Here are our tips for planning a stress free holiday!



Step 1: Plan the Menu



Step 2: Make a Grocery List



Step 3: Shop and Chop

Step 4: Prepare ahead, label and store

Step 5: Eat, Drink and Enjoy your Holiday!

Your Holiday Table was created with you in mind. It features a plan ahead guide to make your holiday a day you will look forward to instead of dread. One reader contacted us to say, “I followed the “E.A.T” guide to prepare some of our Thanksgiving dishes ahead of time for our family and our guests and for the first time ever, I was able to spend the morning of Thanksgiving on a run with my son instead of spending all day in the kitchen”

The following pictures were sent in by a few people who cooked from our menu last year.
