With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it is time to think about holiday gatherings with family and friends. I always have two parties I plan. One is strictly for family and the other for friends. It makes planning simpler for me since my home is small. I always start a month in advance usually in October. If you need to host a stress-free Thanksgiving, keep reading for these tips.
Plan a menu. I like to plan on two different types meats to cook. I also plan a meatless dish and a lasagna casserole for picky eaters. I plan on serving five different veggie dishes, and I bake three different assortment of breads. This takes lots of planning. I also send out official invitations to party guests four weeks in advance so I know how much food to buy. I let each guest know if they would like to bring their favorite dessert to share.
Buffet style. I set up long tables with each dish perfectly displayed. I set each table with fall decorations like pumpkins and warm flowers to make our surroundings festive.
Shop sales. I start looking for coupons to make my meal planning less expensive. I shop the internet and newspaper for coupons, and I also go to grocery stores that honor all competitors. I will prep the night before to ensure cooking on the big day is very easy.
Upgrade your oven. To make sure my party goes as planned and the food is prepared perfectly, I know that an oven is important. My oven is small and takes longer for me to cook everything, and I also want to ensure ever item is heated evenly since cooking temperatures vary from dish to dish. I finally found the perfect oven at Best Buy!

I am so excited to have found an oven such as this! I love to cook, but I was never able to cook everything at once. When cooking meats, vegetables, and pies that require all different temperatures it made cooking more as a hassle rather than something I enjoyed. Some of the things I truly enjoyed about the ProBake Convection is that my food baked to Perfection on Every Rack, Every Time, I felt like I was a authentic chef.
