Thanksgiving Game Plan

Pulling off Thanksgiving Day can be a little stressful without a plan so today I am sharing my tips and game plan for a stress-free holiday!

1 – Get Organized. Put together a game plan and stick to it. Write out your menu, make notes on what can be easily prepped in advance and reheated or even partially prepped (I shave my brussels sprouts days in advance and store them uncooked in tupperware). I also like to look at what takes time in the oven vs stovetop so I know how to best utilize  my limited space and then I like to look at cooking times so I know when to start each dish to make sure they all come together at once.

Buffalo Cauliflower

I love football food. There’s just something so cozy about a rainy fall day, cozy blankets, a good game on the tv, candles lit and a drink in hand. And while I wouldn’t call this buffalo cauliflower a substitution for buffalo wings the flavors are quite delicious. If you’re a buffalo wing lover this might be just the way to get you to enjoy those veggies.

Cooking Technique: Thinly Sliced Garlic

Tools Required:
Sharp Knife – Global is my favorite brand.

Wood Cutting Board – I buy these bamboo boards at IKEA!

My Thought Process:

The initial reason I started thinly slicing rather than mincing my garlic was simply because it was less work. However, aside from any culinary corners I was cutting, I soon discovered that it added WAY more garlic flavor to nearly every dish!

Cooking Technique: Vinaigrettes

Tools Required:

Glass Bowl – I love a good set of nesting bowls for meal prep. I also own over 20 of these glass bowls from IKEA which work perfectly for prep and serving!

Whisk – I own quite a lot of whisks and most of them are pretty inexpensive but I do recommend one good stainless steel whisk for making vinaigrettes, whipped cream or sauces!

My Thought Process:
