Thanksgiving is less than a week away so you should have secured your turkey by now and should be getting ready to select your side dishes and corresponding recipes. It’s not too late to pre-order your fresh turkeys or pies with us, visit our website for more information. You should also be planning and developing your meal at least one week in advance and shopping for the bulk of the ingredients during that week for freshness. Spend some time organizing your fridge in advance to make room for your holiday meal. Now is also a great time to gather your serving trays, bowls, platters and cookware to have them handy and ready to go when needed. Washing and properly storing your produce is advisable to ensure they stay fresh & crisp. Prepping your produce by washing, chopping and storing will save you time when it’s time to cook these items. Another time saving tip is to prepare some dishes in advance such as; stuffing, side dishes or soups and be one-step ahead of your dinner preparations and more relaxed on the big day.
