Do you or any of your readers have any thoughts on traditional dishes to prepare about a week before Thanksgiving that will keep well in the freezer until the big day?
Sent by Virginia-MarieEditor: Virginia-Marie, here are a few suggestions on things to make ahead and freeze:
• Turkey gravy (look for a tutorial on this early next week)
• Pie crusts
• Unbaked rolls or biscuits
• Baked casseroles or creamy gratins
But most of the other major Thanksgiving dishes can actually be made very quickly and easily! Since there are just two of you, I suggest roasting a small chicken (here's how to do it), and then boiling a couple potatoes and quickly mashing them. Then you'll have a bird, stuffing, mashed potatoes, rolls, gravy, and pies. Maybe throw a salad in too, for good measure, and a baked sweet potato.
Readers, any suggestions for Virginia-Marie and her small, cozy Thanksgiving dinner?
