Stress Free Thanksgiving Meal

Three years ago, I decided to cook everything for our Thanksgiving meal ahead of time.  I froze every item except for my turkey that my hubbie smoked in his smoker. I made sure that I put everything in the refrigerator 2 days prior to Thanksgiving meal.  Prior to serving time, I heated all items up in the microwave or oven.  You can even use your slow cooker to heat dishes up, too!  Everything tasted wonderful!

I slept in on Thanksgiving day and enjoyed the day with our family.  I served 12 people an enormous feast without ever stressing out!  It was such a joyous day.  My Thanksgiving has been stress-free ever since.


It truly is silly to spend your day cooking when you can be visiting with your family. Not to mention how tired you will be after waking up before the chickens.

Do you have any Thanksgiving meal tips that makes your day less stressful?

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!
