When to start what when cooking a Thanksgiving meal

THANKSGIVING IS NEXT THURSDAY

AND WHETHER YOU ARE HOSTING 4,

14 OR 40 PEOPLE LIKE I AM,

YOU'VE GOT TO GET THE TIMING

DOWN FOR YOUR THANKSGIVING

FEAST.

WE'VE GOT THE EXPERT HERE

WHO

LITERALLY WRITES THE MAGAZINE ON

IT.

I LOVE ALL THE RECIPES YOU COME

UP WITH, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT

COMES TO THE HOLIDAYS.

BUT TIMING IS AN ART.

ESPECIALLY IF YOU

ARE HAVING

40 PEOPLE, THAT'S A LITTLE

SCARY.

WE ARE TRYING TO DO SOMETHING

DIFFERENT THIS YEAR.

EVERYBODY HAS THEIR FAVORITE

DISHES ALREADY.

MY PARENTS ARE GOING TO DO THE

SAME THING THEY ALWAYS DO, BUT

THERE ARE A LOT OF YOUNGER

PEOPLE THAT HAVE NOT HOSTED

THANKSGIVING BEFORE AND ARE

INTIMIDATED BY DOING IT AND

EVERYBODY HAS SOME SORT OF DIET

RESTRICTION.

THIS IS A GLUTEN-FREE STUFFING.

THIS IS

NOT VEGETARIAN, IT HAS

CHORIZO IN IT, BUT IT IS A GOOD

CORNBREAD STUFFING.

DON'T BAKE

IT, RICHER RATED AND

POP IT IN THE OVEN AT THE LAST

MINUTE.

HOW MANY DAYS AHEAD SHOULD

YOU START?

YOU CAN MAKE POTATOES TWO

DAYS AHEAD.

NEXT TUESDAY YOU ARE MAKING

POTATOES.

PUT THEM IN THE FRIDGE SO YOU

CAN MICROWAVE THEM.

WHAT ELSE COULD YOU DO THAT

EARLY?

YOU CAN BRINE YOUR

TURKEY.

PEOPLE ARE INTIMIDATED BY THE

WHOLE TURKEY, SO I DID A CITRUS

BRINE AND JUST DID A TURKEY

BREAST.

IT COOKS MUCH FASTER AND YOU

DON'T HAVE THE FEAR OF COOKING A

BIG WORD.

-- A BIG BIRD.

THIS IS A VEGETARIAN WILD

MUSHROOM GRAVY. YOU CAN MAKE

THAT TWO DAYS AGO.

AND DRIED WILD

MUSHROOMS, SO

IT'S A WONDERFUL, EARTHY

MUSHROOM FLAVOR.

ALL OF THESE RECIPES ARE IN

THE FREE MAGAZINE.

AND EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS ON

RALEY'S.COM.

THIS IS A BUTTERNUT

SQUASH WITH

A LIGHT ALFREDO SAUCE.

EVERYONE WHO HAS HAD THIS SAYS

IT IS SO FANTASTIC.

IT IS FIVE INGREDIENTS.

DID YOU MAKE IT?

I BOUGHT IT.

THIS IS MY NANA'S PUMPKIN PIE

RECIPE.

IT IS A REALLY FANTASTIC RECIPE

WITH LOTS OF SPICES.

THE LAST THING IS VEGETARIAN

MUSHROOM STUFFING CUP.

WE PUT THE STUFFING

MIXTURE INTO

MUFFIN TINS AND COOK THEM THAT

WAY.

THINK YOU SO MUCH.
