Thanksgiving Survival Guide – 4 of 4

Game Day! One of the biggest mistakes I’ve seen over the years during Thanksgiving is poor planning of oven time. Believe me; you don’t want to be the holdup especially if you have guests who plan on bringing uncooked dishes or dishes that need to be heated.

Actually, you should map out your oven time since most of us have one oven.

Here’s an example game plan for the day.

In this game plan, you’ll see when I’ll be using the stove top. This might come in handy if you’re doing a lot of stove stop dishes. In theory, you can “setup/plate” the dishes all at one time. I’ll leave that to you.

The import thing to remember is: don’t panic and schedule the oven time.

  1. Now, why didn’t I see your survival guide BEFORE Thanksgiving!!!
    I could have used this…My day was a disaster! geez…

  2. […] Back to the apps…after wiping out my phone I started to rebuild my applications. What I really needed was a timer that could keep track of what I’m cooking. I would get frustrated when I would use the oven timer, microwave timer, kitchen timer and then someone would clear out the timers. It’s part of why I don’t like anyone entering the kitchen when I’m there. The other way I would keep track of time was to write the start/end times of each of the dishes. I find this technique good and if you want to see pretty pictures, check this one out: http://edelalon.com/blog/2010/11/thanksgiving-survival-guide-%E2%80%93-4-of-4/. […]

  3. Edel your game plan is wonderful!!! So clear and simple to see what to do when. Thank you for sharing.
    Best wishes,
    Jesse
