Thanksgiving is almost upon us. How will you be celebrating?
Hopefully, you’ll be able to enjoy this special time of year surrounded by friends and family.
And we hope too that you have plenty of time for Thanksgiving; time to spend with the ones you love and a break from work.
Everyone has their family favorites when it comes to the Thanksgiving meal. Maybe you’re the family who loves sweet potatoes and marshmallows. Perhaps Grandma’s pumpkin pie recipe is used every year.
Here, the house cleaning Potomac experts have put their heads together and come up with some time-saving tips for the Thanksgiving meal.
Make a list
Plan your meal. Why to make it a family occasion of it and ask everyone to suggest their choices? Even better, get them to promise to make that dish! Make a shopping list too and give yourself a budget. Don’t add stress by deciding on expensive foods when cheap ones can make great dishes.
Stock up on non-perishables
Buy your beers, wines, store cupboard goods and frozen fruit, vegetables and snack goods well in advance.
Make ahead and re-heat
So many dishes can be made ahead and re-heated or frozen. You can freeze gravy, for example, and if you’re planning butternut squash soup that freezes beautifully too. Pumpkin pie filling will freeze, so does stuffing and cranberry sauce will last a week or so in the fridge.
Assign jobs – or courses
You are not Martha Stewart or the Barefoot Contessa. There’s no need to make everything yourself. If a member of your family expressed a preference for green bean casserole, tell them to make it and bring it along. Ask people to clear up. Put someone in charge of the drinks and get two people washing and drying dishes.
