Thanksgiving Dry Run

The idea of doing a dry run-through of Thanksgiving may sound crazy, excessive, etc. But I’ve learned over the years that it’s worth it to prevent all the stress that occurs from trying to do everything on Thanksgiving day. New recipes sometimes fail, you may be rusty at making old recipes, you can’t find the turkey platter you only use once a year, etc. Since Mr. P and I got married, it also adds another dimension. While the actual Thanksgiving day is spent with our extended family, the rehearsal let’s us have our own special Thanksgiving meal at our own home. And I always like having turkey more than once during this holiday season.
