How to Host a Low-Stress Thanksgiving Dinner.
Short on time, energy, or resources this holiday season? You can still host a killer Thanksgiving dinner.
Here are four ways to throw a low-key Turkey Day bash:
* Go potluck. Have everyone bring a side dish, drink, or dessert. You handle the turkey.
* Prep ahead of time. Make pies, casseroles, and other big items a few days ahead. You can also pre-prep ingredients for day-of items like stuffing, gravy, etc.
* Choose disposable. Opt for compostable serving ware and cut down on the mess and effort of cleanup.
Invite guests over early, too. Most would be happy to help set up for the big meal (while watching football of course!)
