When planning Thanksgiving 2018, ideally we’d all love an easy Thanksgiving menu, easy Thanksgiving games, and easy Thanksgiving recipes to help us actually enjoy Thanksgiving Day. Amen? Well… I’m sharing my easy thanksgiving recipes – including how to cook a turkey and fast Thanksgiving hacks to know how to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner ahead of time. Lose the overwhelm with my free Thanksgiving printables, Thanksgiving menu planner (that shows my actual Thanksgiving menu), my recipes, and Thanksgiving printable games for the kiddos!!!
Quick Thanksgiving menu prep
When planning Thanksgiving day, there are two quick things to do ahead of time – even if it’s only three to four days before Thanksgiving (although I suggest starting at least the week before).
- make a quick list of guests
- list any must-have Thanksgiving menu items
It’s imperative to know a ballpark number of how many guests you’ll be feeding. That way you can go ahead and start planning your easiest Thanksgiving menu and shopping lists. Also, by knowing which items must be on the Thanksgiving menu, like traditional foods or family requests, you can find the easiest Thanksgiving recipes and plan accordingly.
By the way, I have many traditional-Thanksgiving-recipes-made-easy within my easy & stressfree Thanksgiving Day set! [Just saying!]
Easy Thanksgiving menu recipes
Every family is different is what they want to choose for their Thanksgiving menu. I may be biased but I think our Thanksgiving menu list is pretty traditional and incredibly tasty! I’m excited to share Thanksgiving recipes that aren’t intimidating to make.
In the Thanksgiving Day set, you’ll receive printable recipes of these things on our easy Thanksgiving menu:
- my easy Thanksgiving turkey
- my easy Thanksgiving apple pie recipe
- my easy Thanksgiving pecan pie recipe
- my easy Southern pound cake recipe
Is your mouth watering yet?
Easy Thanksgiving planning for adults AND kids
When you are able to find out exactly how many adults and how many children you’ll have for Thanksgiving dinner, you’ll be able to do some quick planning to accommodate them.
Start with the kids. They’ll be just as happy sitting at a small card table without one Thanksgiving decoration if they know that their table is especially for them. Simply print out the Thanksgiving printable games included in the free set and place them in the center of the table with some crayons.
They’ll love that!
