November 24, 2014: Cook Ahead Sides
How can you maximize your cooking time on Thanksgiving day? It’s simple!
One of the easiest ways to save time and money from electricity on Thanksgiving day is to make some cook ahead sides.
Considering some of the most popular dishes include stuffing (or dressing, depending on where you’re from), mashed potatoes, mac & cheese and some sort of vegetable, most of this can be cooked, or at least prepped, in advance.
For stuffing, pasta and potatoes, assemble them in their respective baking dishes and then simply warm in the oven before eating.
If you want to keep your vegetables fresh without overheating, just prep and chop them, making it easier on you on Thanksgiving Day.
This will save a ton of time and help you to enjoy your friends and family more.
