GET READY FOR
There are plenty of
easy ways to save on time and energy but still
have your Thanksgiving meal taste delicious and
look effortless. With just a bit of
planning and thinking ahead you can cook a huge
feast for 20 or more guests all by yourself –
here are simple tips and do ahead ideas that
even beginning cooks can use.
With the Internet,
finding simple, healthy holiday recipes is
easier than ever. Just plan your shopping
list a week or even two weeks ahead of time.
Use downtime, like your morning commute,
to quickly make your list. Many grocery
stores now have “shop online” services where you
can order your groceries over the internet and
have them delivered. Canned items, freshly
bagged cranberries, potatoes, pastas, dried
herbs, and stocks will keep in the pantry or the
fridge for up to two weeks.
Spend 1 or 2 hours
prepping the day before – it’s the perfect time
to have your family or friends help over a hot
cup of cocoa or a glass of wine. You can
make cranberry sauce, apple sauce, desserts,
salad dressings, and even store them directly in
the serving dish so that they can go from the
fridge right to the table. When your
guests offer their help the next day, that’s an
easy way for them to help get the meal under way
without getting their hands dirty.
Casseroles, or scalloped potatoes, to stuffing,
can also be assembled the day before and
refrigerated in their oven-safe cookware, ready
to pop into a preheated oven right before the
doorbell rings and your first guest arrives.
Use wax paper and
zipper lock bags to store items that need
additional cooking the next day. Wrap
cookie dough in wax paper and chill it up to two
days in advance so that you just have to slice
and bake for freshly baked cookies for dessert.
There are no extra bowls or mixing equipment to
clean up since you tidied up the kitchen the
night before. Zipper lock bags are great
for storing dressings, marinades, pasta sauces,
and icings for deserts. Just clip the end
with a scissor and dispense! Plus they
take up less room in the fridge and leave more
space to chill drinks and desserts.
