Countdown to Turkey Day – Day 10


Lists

The countdown to the big day is here. Whether you’re bringing a dish to the celebration or you’re hosting the dinner… it’s always a good idea to make a couple of lists.

My Mother always had lists…. The main list was the actual menu… it was always on the refrigerator door…. and growing up… I admit… I always rolled my eyes….

As an adult that has hosted many dinners… and forgotten numerous things… either in the fridge or the microwave… yes… the microwave… I have learned my Mother was a lot smarter than I gave her credit for.

I can’t tell you how many times I have forgotten something I was reheating in the microwave… the darn little beep goes off… I’m doing something… so I figure I’ll grab it in a minute… and well… you can see where this is going…

Lists take the stress out of having to remember everything… which is a good thing… especially for me… I hate stressful holidays… and I’m always willing to try something that will reduce stress.

So about 10 days before the event… I start my lists.

I have a list for the menu…. a list of things I need to do and when…. and a shopping list…. all subject to change… but I find once I start planning and it goes on the list… it’s pretty much going to get done and not forgotten…. that’s the important part… not forgotten.
