Thanksgiving Dinner Cooking Planner

I don’t know about you but Thanksgiving Day is always filled with chaos. Fun chaos. But chaos nonetheless. With the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade playing in the background, I take to the kitchen prepared to tackle the day’s feast.

I carefully lay out all the ingredients for the delicious dishes (grouping them by recipe, of course) and then take a deep breath.

How am I going to get this all done? Efficiently would be nice.

Inevitably, my kitchen is covered in post-it notes reminding me when to put a dish in and when, oh, and at the right temperature. And wait… did those go in together? Or did I want to cook them separately? Shoot.

To wrangle all the chaos, I’ve created a simple printable chart. Click the links below to download.

You’ve Been Booed

October is here and that means it’s time for boo-ing!

If you’re thinking, “What the heck is this?” Don’t worry… I’ll explain.

Booing is anonymously dropping off buckets of treats to neighbors in the spirit of the season. The goal is to not get caught delivering your gift, so it’s a fun combination of ding-dong ditch and Secret Santa.

Booing people is one of my favorite activities of the Halloween season. I’ve even taken it a step forward and started booing coworkers as well!
