Countdown to Thanksgiving: Get Organized!

Three days until the big feast is here!

By now, your bird has arrived (or at least, is at the store for your pick up).

This year, I bought mine from Autonomy Farms, who has a booth at the local farmer’s market every week.

Nothing like buying straight from the source to make sure you’re getting the most humanely raised bird!

You’re finalizing the last details of your menu, making your list, checking it twice (oh, wait that’s next month), doing your shopping and even some preliminary prep.

Each day, I’ll be posting prep tips based on the countdown to the big feast.

On the books for today:

  • Clean out your fridge and kitchen to start with a clean slate prior to stocking up with all the holiday ingredients.  Not sure what to do with all those odds and ends of proteins and veggies?  Perfect occasion for what I call “Refrigerator Surprise“!
  • Make your shopping list
  • Plan your seating chart
  • Press your table linens
  • Write out your own to-do list, and make sure you factor in getting a good workout in each morning, especially on the day of. This is not with the intention of creating a caloric deficit to enable a gorge later in the day; rather, to keep your head clear and focused during each of these upcoming hectic days!

Check in tomorrow for what’s up next!

Even if you’re fitting this all in late in the evening after a long day at work, it’s just for this one week and you’ll feel all the less rushed on Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning.

It’s nice to have the routine down after all the Paleo Thanksgiving Recipes I’ve put together over the past 10 years.  What are some of your favorites?
