With Halloween over and November upon us I can’t help but start thinking about Thanksgiving, and yes, Christmas. But for right now lets leave Christmas alone.
Thanksgiving is my husbands favorite holiday, and because he’ll be home this year it is my mission to make it great. Here are a few things I’m working on.
Yes this year I need a budget. Luckily most of the food that is prepared on Thanksgiving is rather affordable and if your making things like bread, and pies from scratch life could be good on your pocket book.
The biggest item could be the Turkey, however if your not picky there are certain grocery stores giving them away with an amount spent. There are a lot of reasons to use canned food, but this is the season for yams, green beans, pumpkin, and cranberries, so if you can use whole foods in your recipes.
Re-use past decorations this year, chances are no one but you will know. Let the kids outside to collect leaves, sticks, acorns, and make a homemade centerpiece.
What do I need right now?
Is there anything I can stock up on now that will help me prepare for the day of? Check the pantry and make sure I have things like flour, chicken stock, nuts, dried fruit, seasonings, and the like.
Make the menu and develop an action plan that will give me time to spend with my friends and family.
The holidays can seem incredibly overwhelming, but if you make a plan you may find yourself enjoying the season instead of dreading it.
