Housewife Life: My Plan to Be a Calm, Cool and Collected Hostess

I love to host Thanksgiving. It is one of my favorite days of the year. It combines my love of cooking with my love of logistics and planning. 

But, even I get a bit flustered during the "get the food on the table" rush. 

So, I have some plans to address some of the craziest parts of my Thanksgiving dinner.

1. I'm going to utilize my slow cookers.
I have plans to use three slow cookers on Thanksgiving. 
In one, I will be keeping my mashed potatoes warm...see yesterday's post for more information on that. 
In the second one, I will be keeping my roasted veggies warm. I did that for a Christmas party last year. 
In the third, I will be keeping my turkey warm. My husband will be smoking the turkey breasts earlier in the day and my plan is to have them done and sliced at 3:00 PM, 90 minutes before our 4:30 PM dinner. 

2. I'm going to prep everything on Wednesday.
From casseroles to the deviled eggs, everything will be prepped by the time I go to bed on Wednesday night.

3. I'm going to be done with cleaning on Tuesday. 
Other than sweeping, dishes and taking out the trash, I plan on getting everything done by the time I go to bed on Tuesday night. 

And that is my plan.
