How do you plan your Thanksgiving dinner?

For every head of the family, Thanksgiving celebrations will always be held. Thanksgiving dinner is one of the occasions to look forward to. Such a large event takes thorough planning and preparation because there are many things that need to be prepared. In this regard, Thanksgiving preparation is broken down into a number of stages, such as one month before the day, three weeks before the day, and several other stages that lead up to Thanksgiving dinner itself.

Therefore, the first action to address this issue is to plan the Thanksgiving feast, which should be done one month before the celebration. Consequently, a month prior to Thanksgiving, the following preparations must be undertaken in order to hold a dinner, such as:

Complete the guest list. It is important when you're hosting a sit-down dinner, consider the number of guests you can seat at the table. Whether you have a buffet, keep the system more casual and you better bring extra people. There really is no requirement for official invites; simply a phone call or message to family members and friends will do. In addition, it is now appropriate to check over whether your relatives would mind bringing their delicious meals too. Last but not least, identify any food restrictions that your guests may have.

Send in a rental order. If required, consider getting cutlery, glasses, plates, chairs, tables, and other furnishings by renting them.

Menu planning. Choose your best-loved menu item, such as the turkey recipe, whether you want it to be roasted or stuffed with filling, and then organize the other items to go with the turkey. If you prefer side dishes, initiate with those that you already like and expand from them. Next, choose foods that are acceptable at room temperature thus you won't be worried about the hot dinner or the melted cold dessert. In addition, when planning what to offer when guests arrive, don't forget to consider light snacks and drinks.

Therefore, some of the mentioned preparations need to be taken into account one month before Thanksgiving dinner. In order to make your planning more efficient and simple to work on in the future, make sure all the details are written down.

What do you have planned for the day after Thanksgiving dinner?

All that's left to do is clean up after a big, joyful dinner. Whether it comes from the dining room, tools that are leased, tables, seats, or other Thanksgiving-related goods. Food that has already been consumed does not fall under this rule. Save the leftovers from dinner. The leftovers are still edible and can be saved for later.

Leftovers can be kept in the fridge for up to 4 days. Instead of warming the full amount, consider only microwaving the portion that will be served directly. It's okay to heat everything up and then freeze stuff you don't really need, but this isn't the best solution. Instead, you may improve the overall quality of your turkey by making turkey soup.

Are you trying to find a dessert for Thanksgiving that goes well with those seasoned meals? Since Thanksgiving also provides us with a large amount of pumpkin to harvest, consider making this pumpkin cake with frosting cheese cream instead. Given that it was adapted from one source, you can locate this recipe online.


The pumpkin cake requires the following ingredients:

  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • white sugar, 1 2/3 cups
  • 1 cup of vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 cups of fresh pumpkin puree, or 15 oz/420 g, in a can
  • 2 cups plain/all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • a teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt


Ingredients for the cheese cream frosting:

  • At room temperature, 6 oz./180 g. of cream cheese
  • 1 cup/225 g softened unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 4 cups soft icing sugar or sifted powdered sugar.


How to proceed:

  1. All oven types should be preheated to 350F / 180C.
  2. Grease and use overhanging baking paper to cover a sizable pan that is approximately 9 x 13′′/22 x 33cm. 
  3. Eggs, sugar, oil, and pumpkin puree should all be whisked together in a sizable bowl.
  4. Combine all of the remaining ingredients thoroughly.
  5. Distribute into the prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes in the oven.
  6. Prior to transferring to a cooling rack, rest for 10 minutes. Pour cream cheese frosting to the cake.


For frosting:

  • All ingredients should be mixed in a bowl and whipped for 3 to 5 minutes, or until soft. Apply the whisk attachment if using a hand blender.

So there you have it—the recipe for pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting. You don't have to worry about missing out on the tasty cake because the serving makes 12–20.
