While there isn't one secret to making a holiday meal, you may always get as much prepared in advance of the big feast. This allows you to spend more time with your loved ones and friends and lessen your stress on that specific day.
Here are a few things you can do ahead of time, so everything is in its place.
* PREPARE AHEAD OF TIME:
A day or two before you prepare the dish, prepare all the vegetables you will need. Then, until you need them, keep them in your refrigerator in a prep bowl set like our Ecoberi collapsible containers. Measure all the ingredients you need ahead of time. Gather all the dishes and cookware you'll need for the entire meal. Then, set your dining table several days in advance so you won't have to worry about this on the big day.
* CREATE A COOKING TIMELINE:
Make appropriate plans for the days before your holiday feast. List your must-dos, taking into account which dishes should be served right away and which ones require more time to prepare.
With these simple Holiday Meal Ideas, you can avoid a mid-day meltdown on your Big Feast by planning ahead and prepping your dishes before the big day even begins.
