The Day Before Thanksgiving

The Martha Stewart Show, November 2006

The day before Thanksgiving is a very important time to take care of last-minute preparations. To avoid stress, it's best to follow these tips the day before the big day.

-Buy your salad greens and perishable vegetables for tomorrow.
-Finish your fruit and pecan pies. Store them at room temperature instead of in the fridge so they don't get soggy.
-Set your table with your linens, serving dishes, centerpieces, and place settings.
-Pick up your fresh turkey.
-Finally -- make a timeline for tomorrow. Preparing a set schedule and checklist always allows you to get organized while entertaining. The last thing you'll want to have is a slew of hungry guests waiting on an uncooked bird.
