On Thursday, November 22nd, we celebrate Thanksgiving Day. Now is the time to plan your menu for the day. Know how many people are going over to your place or how many are going to wherever you are getting together for Thanksgiving Day. Know which dishes are needed to be made by you and how many are needed to brought over by others. If you are the host, then you must make the turkey and stuffing. Sweet potatoes and mashed white potatoes can be brought over by others. Cranberry sauce should be gotten by the host. Hot vegetables can be brought over or made by the host. Pumpkin and apple pies can be brought over by your guests. Hot rolls or bread should be made by the host. Whenever everything is planned ahead, you will have some time to relax and watch some football. Relax and have a happy Thanksgiving Day.
