Stress Less Thanksgiving Free Printable Planning Guide Part II
This week I have gotten my chicken broth cooked and in the freezer for the Cornbread dressing. You can find the recipe for Buttermilk Cornbread and Cornbread dressing here. I will simply thaw the cornbread and the broth Wednesday night to make the dressing Thursday morning.
I shared an easy recipe for a hearty cold weather meal in a pot called, Biscuit Dumplings which you can find here.
I also did a trial run on a recipe fellow blogger, Kristen at The Road to Domestication posted during her Tastiest Thanksgiving Ever series. The recipe is for Cranberry Relish. We have always used canned cranberry sauce in my family but don’t you agree this looks delicious and beautiful in the pot! It is very simple and easy to make. Kristen has provided a link to print a beautifully embellished copy of the recipe here. Your house will smell so much like fall while this is cooking!
My Thanksgiving Planning Guide Notebook has been put together. The November Calendar is already full, a couple of items have been checked off of the shopping list and several make ahead ingredients are thankfully, in the freezer! I hope your week has been productive also! Are you planning ahead for Thanksgiving?
This is a terrific Thanksgiving planning series. Thanks for sharing your organization ideas. 🙂
Life With Lorelai
Thanks, Lorelai. I have enjoyed it very much.
These are all so nice. And reading this just made me realize I forgot to purchase binders at Walmart! Lol. Thanks for the great series. I have really enjoyed it.
Amanda, I just ‘betcha’ there are binders in your home already that will serve!
I’m really impressed! I only have to help with desserts, bread, and a salad, so not all the responsibility falls on me! I just put things I have to do on my yahoo calendar, and have it email me if I have to remember it. I am not good at keeping slips of paper these days.
You know what they say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!” Whatever works best. It is really nice for families to share all of the cooking responsibilities for Thanksgiving. It would be entirely too much work on one person! My Mom used to do it all though.
WOW! You are on the ball! Go, girl! And thanks for the shout-out 🙂
Thank Kristen. I will be glad I did all the Make Ahead things the day before Thanksgiving!
That Cranberry Relish looks amazing! So pretty – I just don’t know if I could get my husband to let go of his canned cranberry sauce! Yuck! LOL
It sure did make the house smell nice while it was cooking!
That buttermilk cornbread looks amazing!
Thank you, it was good too!
I love cornbread! And that cranberry relish looks amazing. Pinning!
Thanks Missy. I’ve never met a pan of cornbread I didn’t like!
We make cranberry applesauce here. One way is to put in an apple or 2 per bag, cook the whole thing, then run it through a foodmill. That is Hubby’s prefered method. I like a texture. SO I will peel and dice the apple, toss it in with the berries to cook, then add nuts! i usually cook it before Thanksgiving, but have a boatload, so it freezes for Christmas!
That actually sound amazing! Have you posted that on your blog? I’d like to see it.
