Thanksgiving is a big deal in my home. I've been hosting for years and I do all the cooking by myself. Guests come with empty stomachs ready to eat. And I'm happy to serve them.
All that delicious food doesn't come easy though. Some things like the pie dough, stock, and cranberry sauce start 3 days ahead. But that's fairly easy compared to all the prep I do the day before. See the below? That's 8 hours of consecutive prep. It saves me a lot of time and worry the day of. All worth it.
