Pre-Thanksgiving Round Up

If you’re anything like my mom, you don’t really host Thanksgiving dinner. After all, it’s not a Filipino holiday. When you find yourself having to, you’ll probably get it catered. LOL.

If you’re not like my mom then you’re not only hosting Thanksgiving, but making everything as well. God bless you for taking on such a feat.

Here are some helpful links I found on the web:

How to Cook the Perfect Turkey [TLC Cooking] – This isn’t just any turkey. This how-to will help you make “the perfect turkey” for your holiday feast.

Vegetarian Menu [Food & Style] – You can still have a delicious holiday feast even without meat. Chef Viviane shows us how. If you have chosen to be a vegetarian then this game plan is for you.

Thanksgiving on a Shoestring Budget [Del Mar Times] – Don’t let a tight budget prevent you from having a wonderful feast. These tips should help.

Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes [Eating Well] – Thanksgiving doesn’t mean you have to eat poorly. If you’ve vowed to maintain a healthy and nutritious diet, you can celebrate without compromising your diet. Check out some of the recipes at Eating Well. You won’t be disappointed.

Thanksgiving Pies & Desserts [AllRecipes.com] – Dessert is almost as important as turkey. LOL. I’m not a big fan of turkey so I could do without it. On the other hand, I have to have dessert.

How to Streamline Thanksgiving Dinner Clean Up [TLC Cooking] – Clean up is always the least fun part, but these tips should help you get through the post-Thanksgiving mess without tearing your hair out. Then again, if you want to skip the cooking and clean up you could always just go to one of several restaurants open on Thanksgiving Day.

The Wichita Eagle has a comprehensive list of restaurants, buffet or otherwise. The buffets range in price from $9.79 (Furr’s Family Dining) to $23.95 (Legends inside the Airport Hilton). There are options for any budget.

As for us, Brian and I have two stops on Thanksgiving Day. Lunch at his parents’ house, which will probably consist of traditional Thanksgiving dishes, and then dinner at my parents’ house, which will be mostly Filipino food. Mom’s not much of a traditionalist. LOL.
