Take heart, aspiring hostess with the mostest: Faith Durand of The Kitchn has put together an amazing Thanksgiving menu for eight, complete with suggestions for what guests can bring and handy tips on how to get a head start so you're not stressing on Turkey Day. She also offers drink pairings and classic recipes for the appetizer, entrée, and dessert courses, too.
One of her big tips? Since Thanksgiving recipes tend to require specific ingredients that everyone will be buying, do your grocery shopping early. That way, you won’t be traveling to multiple stores to find the last can of pumpkin puree in town. With Durand’s help, your Thanksgiving dinner will be organized, delicious, and relaxing. And, you'll even get to enjoy the meal — now that’s something to be thankful for this year. (The Kitchn)
