My Thanksgiving Menu Plan: A Step-by-Step Guide to Preparing in Advance

Thanksgiving Menu Plan

Yo.

I know some of you are planning Thanksgiving menus so I thought I’d throw out my personal Thanksgiving menu for this year. This is what my menu consists of so far; of course I reserve the right to change my mind up to the day of since there are just so, so many recipes worthy of the big day, if you know what I mean.

Because I have nerdy spreadsheet tendencies, I’ve thrown the recipes into a matrix of step-by-step plans so you know what you can do one week in advance (or further), 2 days in advance, 24 hours in advance, 4-6 hours in advance…and you probably get it by now. It’s similar to the plans for feeding a crowd just focused on Thanksgiving instead (and not necessarily extrapolated to feed your entire town).

So there you go! I know many of you have versatility to your menus and won’t need/want to make every single recipe from here but in case you are still looking for inspiration and need some help figuring out how to make a robust, delicious Thanksgiving menu without pulling three all-nighters in a row, this plan is for you.
