My Thanksgiving Dinner Timeline

Since I am hosting Thanksgiving this year, I have made a timeline for myself that began a few weeks ago. It’s been so helpful to get projects done and pre-baking in the freezer.

Someone asked if I would share my agenda for Thanksgiving day preparation, and I am happy to post my schedule. Keep in mind, however, that I am having help from my girls with a charcuterie board, sides and dessert, so those items will not be part of my plans.

I will also add the specific times for my Thursday agenda. That way I will know that the turkey has 45 minutes to one hour to rest before carving (it will be covered with foil and dish towels to keep warm). While the turkey is resting, the gravy will be finished up and the biscuits will be baked. Any other items that need to be warmed will also be put in the oven.

Lord willing and the biscuits rise, dinner will be served at 1 o’clock!

Are you following a minute by minute schedule that will keep you on time? What else do you add to your prep?

Happy Thanksgiving, friends! I will post again next week!

  1. Happy Thanksgiving Denise! You are very organized. Thanks for sharing. Question-how do you reheat your corn pudding on Thursday? I would like to try that so I can bake it early too. Thanks 😊

    1. Hi Jenny! If I don’t organize I would forget so many things! It helps keep me on track. =) Yes, I will reheat the corn pudding on Thursday. I’ll let it set out at room temp and then pop it into a warm oven to heat up again.
