Last Minute Tips for the Best Thanksgiving from Walking on Sunshine Recipes

The big day is almost here!  
Are you getting excited or a little freaked out over all the work that needs to get done in the next 24 hours?  I love the day before Thanksgiving.  I love all the preparation, cleaning, cooking that goes into getting the biggest meal of the year on the table for my family and friends.  Here are a few last minute tips for all of us to help get ready for tomorrow.  


Here are a few recipes you can prepare today:

Herbed Stuffing looks amazing.  Put this all together today and then after the turkey is done cooking, just take the casserole out of the refrigerator and into the oven it goes to bake.

Roasted Vegetables can be prepared today as well.  Get all the vegetables you want to use peeled and chopped.  Then store in a baggie until you're ready to bake them after the turkey is done.  Prepare the dressing as well today!  Use a mason jar to store it until right before the vegetables go in the oven.

Warm Bacon and Cheese Dip can also be prepared today and baked tomorrow as well after the turkey is out of the oven.  You can even bake this before the roasted vegetables go in so your guests can snack on this yummy appetizer.

Here's a fun dessert treat you can make that I know the kids are going to LOVE.
