How To Make An Easy Homemade Thanksgiving Dinner

It may seem impossible to cook a homemade Thanksgiving dinner when you are pressed for time and have children running around. Here are my best tips for any easy homemade Thanksgiving feast. I'm going to help you create a traditional meal without all the stress.

First buy some beautiful paper plates so you don't have to worry about the dishes!

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite Holidays to enjoy time with my family. I love to cook a huge dinner but hate spending the entire day in a hot kitchen.

I have three small children. I want them to remember enjoying a beautiful meal.

I don't want them to remember mom being stressed out and tired.

Plan Your Dinner in Advance to Ensure Success

Plan your Thanksgiving menu at least one week in advance. A trip to the grocery store with frantic thanksgiving shoppers, crowded aisles and overworked cashiers is enough to make anyone stress out.

I cook the same dishes every year.

My family looks forward to a large helping of my homemade cornbread stuffing and juicy turkey once a year. One taste of my sweet potatoes and you know it is Thanksgiving Day!

Creating a menu makes it easy to plan ahead. I like to have a schedule for shopping and cooking. This ensures all of the dishes are on the table hot and at the same time.

Preparing For Thanksgiving Dinner - Traditional Menu

Turkey

Cornbread Stuffing

Green Bean Casserole

Mashed Potatoes

Gravy

Sweet Potatoes

Dinner Rolls

Pumpkin Pie

Cranberry Apple Crisp

Drinks: Soda/ Bottled Water/ Milk

I cook and do prep work the night before Thanksgiving.

  1. Bake the corn bread and chop the vegetables for the stuffing.
  2. Sweet potatoes take longer to boil than regular potatoes so peel, cut and boil them. They can be stored in the refrigerator in the water they were boiled in.
  3. Prepare the green bean casserole without the fried onions. Do not mix the fried onions in the casserole or pour them on top until you are ready to bake it or they will get mushy.
  4. Prepare the dough for the rolls and store it in the refrigerator. Take the dough out when you put the turkey in the oven so that it can reach room temperature before baking.
  5. Prepare the apple crisp and pumpkin pies. Do not bake them until you are eating dinner so they can be served nice and hot.

Tips For a Simple Thanksgiving Dinner

Don't take the chance of ruining Thanksgiving dinner. Try a new recipe for dessert or practice the recipe several days before your dinner.

      My sister-in-law is usually in charge of planning the Thanksgiving dinner in our family, and she usually does an awesome job decorating her house. Only 54 days to Thanksgiving, wow, time surely flies :)
