Thanksgiving Day Plan

I am making Thanksgiving Dinner for my small little family.

We did the same thing last year and it was a lot of fun.

I am thankful for the chance to try and master my Thanksgiving cooking with my small family before (in the future) having to cook under pressure for a larger crowd.

This is my Plan for Thanksgiving Dinner and Prep:

The Menu:


Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls


Cheese ball/Crackers



Strawberry Pretzel Jell-O

Bacon Herb Turkey

Mashed Potatoes


Stuffing (Stove Top)


Green Beans


Apple Pie with Pecan Crumble

Pumpkin Pie

Ice Cream

Plan of Action:

The Timing is always my biggest problem. I always have a hard time getting everything done at the same time. I usually end up with something cold….Annoying. So, here is my schedule of how I will do it all without having an anxiety attack. Dinner will be around 3pm.


Make Strawberry Pretzel Jell-O, Gravy, Apple Pie and Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls.


7 am: Bake Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls/Eat Breakfast

Roast Pecans

9 am: Make turkey Herb Past

Take Turkey out of Fridge

Start Rolls

11:30 am: Put turkey in Oven

Appetizers Out

1:00 pm: Set Table

1:30 pm: Boil Potatoes

2 pm: Boil Green Beans

2:30 pm: Take Turkey Out

Mash Potatoes


Bake Rolls

5 pm: Desserts
