I am not hosting Thanksgiving this year, so I won’t be able to set a table or plan a menu.

So tonight – we totally cheated.

On our way home from a weekend away with friends, we stopped at Trader Joes.

We came home with a precooked turkey and frozen stuffing, sweet potatoes and squash risotto.

The fire was roaring and we had a little quiet time just the four of us.

If you are however hosting Thanksgiving – I thought I would do a quick wrap up of ideas here to make it even easier for you.
