I think one of the hardest things about hosting a major holiday is timing. Having everything ready and hot to eat at the same time can be overwhelming. For me it’s hard enough to just keep the house clean with 4 kids underfoot let alone cook at the same time. I try to make as many things ahead of time as possible so that I only have to reheat sides and tend the meat.
I decided to put together a list of recipes you can make AT LEAST 24 hours ahead. These either reheat well or are eaten cold (pumpkin cheesecake, I’m looking at you).
