    Less stressful for me? Well I guess we would have to get someone in to cook for us I guess!

    Plan ahead and don't attempt to do everything by yourself.
    Keep your focus on what the holiday is really about. (Spending time with those you love and counting your blessings for another year together). If the meal doesn't come out "perfect" or exactly as you hoped then it wasn't meant to be.
    "Don't sweat the small stuff". Laugh and enjoy your time with your family and friends! Cook only if YOU (enjoy) cooking. If you enjoy doing something then the "stress" is part of the (fun) in pulling it off!
    You always have the option to order a cooked Thanksgiving meal from your local grocery store or a Honeybaked Ham and pick up deserts from Costco or Sams. It's the people not the food that make holidays special.

    Start grocery shopping now! Buy non-perishable items and non fresh items (canned food, flour, sugar, drinks, etc.). This also helps to save money because grocery stores always have different sales in the weeks prior to a major holiday.

    Ask guests to bring some type of dish or dessert. Even if it is just a salad or cheese platter that is one less item you have to worry about buying or making.

    Try not to stress out. Everything will not go as planned so try not to stress out about things you can not fix.

    By not cooking or cleaning anything. That would certainly help.

    My family and my sister's get together and we divide the responsibilities and we all help cleanup. We don't have to dress up and pretend we're the Cleavers, we just eat and have a good time. I think this year we are doing a Monty Python marathon. Good times!
