I have 3 words for you this Thanks Giving.
Learn to delegate; on second though, let me add, do start the bubbly, vino, beer, bloody Mary, (that’s for you J.P.) relatively early.
Don’t be shy, give a task to every single one of your guests including all children above 3. If they have limbs, they can be of use. Listen to a type A, don’t be stubborn, give up the control.
Once everyone is at work, you will find yourself with plenty time to enjoy and appreciate the day, your meal, the friends, and most importantly your family, not to mention you might even be able to shower and dress up for a change.
To demonstrate my point I’m delegating to my favorite writers, chefs and bloggers my work; instead of sharing my own recipes and advices, I have collected their articles and posts to help you with all your Turkey day needs.
From a truly magnificent and creative Thanksgiving menu from Canal House, or Food52 99 solution to your food problems, a brilliant argument generator from Huff Post, or a funny video from Giada, or help from David Leite at Culinaria, an elegant recipe from David Lebovitz,fashion tips from the ladies at The New Potato, everything Connecticut from the writers at CTBites, very funny and sparkly last minute help from my stylish friend Jessica Gordon Ryan, invaluable green tips from Analiese Paik, excellent advise from the crew at CTSTYLE, and last but not least a day after, genius idea, from the mavericks at Saveur, I got you covered.
Happy Stress Free Thanksgiving !
