Plan Your Menu Early
Think ahead and plan the menu early to allow for a smooth and successful result. Determine the main entree -- chicken, turkey or goose? Think about soup, salad, sides, nuts, desserts and even refreshments. “Once you’ve planned your menu, you can pull out your recipes and check your cabinets to see what you have in stock and what you’ll need to buy,”said chef Jennifer Hill Booker, author of "Our Resident Gourmet."
