If you are courageous enough to prepare an entire Thanksgiving meal, I applaud you. I have endeavored the same cooking challenge, and found that it's totally doable when you consider a menu plan and timing.
Surprisingly, I have never felt overwhelmed because I lean into tips picked up along my cooking journey. I think through the menu and the schedule ahead of time, and break down most of the preparation over a week's time. So there is work, but very little stress, and complete satisfaction when dinner guests rave about the outcome. So here it is, my version of a perfect Thanksgiving, including the menu, the recipes, and the roadmap for the week to prepare for that special Thursday that only comes once a year!
