You've been busy. You've been tired. You've let the days of prepping and chopping and make-ahead-ing pass, and The Big Day, that day that everyone's been talking about (and that you, until now, have been ignoring) is now two days away.
Here is a full, well-rounded, nobody-will-ever-know Last Minute Thanksgiving Menu: Thanksgiving simplified, condensed, and served up on your finest china. Take a deep breath, head to the grocery store, and get started. We've got your back.
Make these today or tomorrow, and store them in an air-tight container once completely cooled.
Whip this up tomorrow, then store it in the fridge. Then, it's just a simple reheat!
Shave all of your sprouts the day before, and make your salad dressing. Then, the day-of, all you need to do is slice your onions, crumble your cheese, and toss!
Who needs to dry-brine when you can wrap your turkey in bacon?
Make this mash the morning-of, and then reheat!
Make this today or tomorrrow and pop it in the fridge. Let your guests ooh and aah when you unmold it.
Do your stale-ing and chopping today and tomorrow; then, all you'll need to do is arrange and bake. (And devour.)
Slice your cabbage up to two hours before; then simmer this together before serving. Your guests will love the smell, and this is best served piping hot.
Make the crust the day ahead, then mix your filling and bake the tart on The Big Day.
