Prepare the Dining Room & Kitchen

 

The bulk of work preparing Thanksgiving dinner involves cooking, but that’s only part of what has to happen. All those other little details, such as digging out the right tablecloth and extra cutlery, can trip you up at the last minute when you’re busy juggling a turkey and a potato masher. Even something as simple as having a disorganized kitchen can get you into trouble. So to avoid all these hassles, I recommend setting aside an hour or two—earlier in the week, if possible, but no later than the day before—to get the dining room ready.
