WINNER: Doug W (gonefishin200@)I have been sharing some of my tips to help you keep your sanity this holiday season. With so much to do it can be easy to get overwhelmed. Hopefully some of these tips will help give you back some time and allow you enjoy the time with your friends and family.
One of the biggest things that I do to ensure that I actually get to enjoy Thanksgiving is by prepping as much as possible ahead of time. Trying to cook, greet guests and entertain can be exhausting. So why not simplify where you can.
Many recipes can be partially prepared ahead of time so that you only need to actually cook them the day they are served. In other cases you can cut veggies and other items ahead of time and store them in your fridge so that you simply grab them when you need them. Pre-measure ingredients into Ziploc® Brand Bags so that you simply combine everything when you are ready to make your recipe. Not having to find the ingredients and measure them out will save massive time on a busy cooking day. You can have all the dry ingredients for a pie in one bag so that you only need to add the wet ingredients, mix and bake! Just make sure you label everything so it doesn't get mixed up!
Also remember yesterday when we talked about those overpacked refrigerators during the holidays? Ziploc® Brand Bags can be stacked and will often take up less space than other bulky containers and jars. So be sure to take advantage of the sale at Publix so you can prep like a pro and give yourself some free time to enjoy the actual holiday!
