I grew up with a fairly large extended family and that meant a lot of different side dishes for Thanksgiving dinner. My mother always stressed out on Thanksgiving morning on what side dish should be made or served in what container. Now that I'm entertaining during the holidays I simplified that issue.
I lay out all my bowls, platters casserole dishes and whatever else I know I might need and then I label each one with a sticky note noting what that dish is for. Not only does this help me remember what to put in that dish, but it also guides anyone who may be helping me prep in the kitchen.
Until next time, happy entertaining and cheers!
