This is a no brainer when you think about it...but some people don't think about it! On Thanksgiving you're going to be scrambling to cook a million things, so get your veggies out of the way early. But really why are we focusing on vegetables when there's a great thing called CARBS!?
Prepare your mashed potatoes ahead of time and keep them warm using a slow cooker. Why stop at mashed potatoes, though? Any side dish will apply. The world is your oyster...even if you're not serving oysters!
Maybe watching football is your jam for this special day. But what if your beer is warm!? Fear not, because a wet paper towel and a freezer will have that beer cold in no time. When the Mayflower landed on Plymouth Rock, everyone was like "I swear to god if people drink warm beer to honor us, we're turning around RIGHT now."
As long as we're hallowing out some food, a hallowed out gourd can make a pretty cute candle holder. Because why have an interesting Thanksgiving when you can have a PINTERESTing Thanksgiving? See what I did there?
